Texas-Style Barbecue Sauce (Diabetic)

User Rating 4 Star Rating (1 Review)


I can't guarantee that this recipe is right for all restrictive diets. I have had requests for a diabetic barbecue sauce and this is the closest I could come up with.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: Makes about 1 cup


  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 cup sugar-free cola
  • 1 tablespoon dehydrated onion flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic clove
  • Dash cayenne pepper


In a medium sauce pan, combine ingredients in order listed. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Serve over grilled chicken, beef, pork or frankfurters. The recipe can be doubled or tripled according to need.

This sauce was outstanding. I didn't have cola, but used diet pepsi, added some mustard, fresh garlic and onion. I made the sauce for my dad, but I think we all will be eating this. W-O-N-D-E-R-F-U-L
