This is a super, yummy barbecue sauce that is perfect for grilling or slow roasting. You can also simmer for 30-40 minutes before brushing onto food that will have a shorter cooking time. Great for ribs and chicken!

  • Combine all ingredients and apply to food that will be slow cooked or grilled. If applying to a food that will cook quicker, like wings, then place all ingredients in a saucepan and gently simmer for approx. 30-40 minutes and then apply to food.


We are fully aware that soy is not "keto" and, yes, you can substitute the tamari for coconut aminos. The flavor will be sweeter with the coconut aminos and the carb count will be higher. 
We used Tamari in this recipe because (1) it is gluten-free, (2) Tamari, when processed properly (meaning get a good quality, organic Tamari if you are going that route) has very little, if any, soy protein remaining after fermenting, and (3) it is lower in carbs than coconut aminos. 
Serving size is approx. 1/4 cup out of approx. 5.5 cups.
