Ingredients
  • 1 small onion, minced OR 1 TB dried chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced OR ¼ teaspoon garlic powder OR 1 teaspoon dried garlic
  • 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 1 can (12 oz size) diet/sugar free cola
  • ½ cup of water
  • 3 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar
  • Dash of hot sauce to taste if preferred
  • Optional: 2 strips of cooked bacon, chopped fine
Instructions
  1. In a large sauce pan fry the two strips of bacon if you are using them. When crispy remove and allow to cool before chopping them finely. Do not drain the fat out of the pan. Continue with the directions below.
  2. If your not using the bacon then in a large sauce pan add the onion, garlic, tomato paste, diet cola, mustard, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar.
  3. Simmer for 20 to 30 minutes to allow the flavors to combine. Add in enough water to create a sauce with the consistency you prefer….thick or thin. Usually no more than ½ cup is necessary. Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning to your taste. Add hot sauce if you prefer spicy barbeque sauce. An additional teaspoon or two of vinegar can make it a bit tangier. You can also add a little bit of sweetener, such as Equal or Splenda, to create a sweeter sauce if desired.
  4. Serving size is ¼ cup. Each serving has about 3 grams of carbs.
