Stop what you are doing right now! You are about to learn how to make my Keto Best Mustard BBQ Sauce. I’m not even kidding when I say that this is the most delicious bbq sauce I have ever tasted and I’ve tasted a lot. Maybe my renewed taste buds are the reason, but this stuff is finger lickin’ good. I had it on pulled pork today and next week I’m going to try it on wings!

As a child growing up in North and South Carolina, I learned a thing or two about barbecue sauce. First of all bbq sauce isn’t only one color (red) it comes in many colors, flavors, and even consistencies. It can be vinegar based, tomato based, mayo-based, and yes even mustard based. Going to a BBQ means there’s going to be a pig cookin’, not that we are going to throw some frozen burgers on the grill and call it a bbq (come on now Yankees, get it right!).

I am partial to mustard based South Carolina barbecue sauce. I lived in the tiny town of Loris, SC for almost ten years and I know how I like my bbq and my chicken bog (bonus points if you know what this is). In NC I like my bbq sauce made with vinegar, but in South Carolina I want my pork covered in mustard sauce!

Can you please elaborate on the stevia? Is this the liquid or powder? Could I use packets?


Friday 26th of June 2020

You can use any type of stevia you like.

Oh my gosh, this is tangy on steroids. Used liquid stevia as that's what I had. Slathered it all over the shredded pork shoulder and let it sit for a bit, after mixing well. Fantastic. You can adjust the ingredients to taste w/o a problem, but oh, don't skimp on the butter.

Wow, wow, and wow. This stuff is AWESOME. I found that it also pairs very well with roasted Brussels sprouts!
