Homemade BBQ Sauce

I was skeptical when I first tasted this sauce as is, but was pleasantly surprised after smothering a pork roast with it to make pulled pork in my slow cooker! It’s both sweet and tangy and despite concerns that it might burn in the crockpot due to it’s sugar content, it did not… even after 6 hours on low! Definitely worth a try although I prefer it as a cooking sauce versus a condiment; I think it needs to cook down for the true flavor to develop.

Ingredients: Makes approximately 2 1/3 cups

  • 2 tbsp dry onion soup mix (I used “Beefy Onion” mix by Lipton)
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar (I used a Stevia based blend)
  • 2 cups Ketchup (low sodium and/or sugar free is an option)
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce


Combine ingredients and blend using a whisk. Let sit at least three hours if serving as a condiment. Best used as a marinade/cooking sauce!
