In a saucepan mix together tomato sauce, vinegar, minced garlic (or garlic paste), dry mustard powder, paprika, sweetener and the key ingredient: liquid smoke. Liquid smoke is an all-natural flavor enhancer with no carbs, no additives, and no preservatives. It packs quite a punch and is perfect for making this sauce. As for the sweetener, it’s really up to you what you want to add. I’ve tried Da Vinci sweetening syrup before and that worked well. Granulated Swerve has a good taste but contains a few carbs. Granulated Splenda works fine although you don’t want to add too much as you’ll detect that aftertaste. I’d recommend adding a little at a time and keep taste testing! Once you have the desired sweetness, add black pepper and salt if required.
Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer for five minutes. This is one of those sauces that will actually taste better the next day if you can make it advance!
One of my favorite uses for this sauce is mixing it with some slow cooker pulled pork!
