Keto BBQ Sauce

  • Author: Tastes Lovely
  • Total Time: 10 mins
  • Yield: 2 cups 1x


  • 1/2 cups balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 cup water (or more to desired consistency)
  • (1) 6-ounce can tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup (or more to taste of monk fruit (for Whole30 substitute 8 pitted medjool dates)
  • 2 tablespoons dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Heat a sauce pan over medium low heat. Add all ingredients, stir to combine, and bring to a low simmer for 5 minutes. You don’t want it to boil, just get warmed through. Heating will allow the flavors to marry.
  2. (If using dates, transfer the BBQ sauce to a blender, and blend on high speed for 2 minutes.)
  3. Store in an airtight container or wide mouth pint mason jar. Will keep in the fridge for at least 3 months, or frozen for 1 year.


  • Gluten Free: Be sure to use tamari or coconut aminos instead of soy sauce.
