Easy Diabetic Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Easy Diabetic Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Just because this is headlined as a diabetic barbecue sauce recipe doesn't mean that it has to be kept to one side and only brought out when there is a medical need. Anyone can make it and anyone can eat it. I have to confess to being very conscious about my health and the food that I put into my body yet at the same time I'm also passionate about barbecue and outdoor cooking. My argument is that if you are using my recipes for your own meals then that's got to be a step in the right direction because cooking from fresh ingredients is always better than starting with a processed ingredient. That said, I know that sugar is not good for me and I also know that a number of my barbecue sauce recipes contain either a lot of added sugar or start with a processed ingredient such as ketchup. So this recipe is based primarily on fresh ingredients but its still has a sweetness thanks to the addition of some sugar free cola. My Uncle Harold slaving over his gas grill My uncle turned diabetic five years ago so when our family get together this is the barbecue sauce recipe I make. That said, since I first put this recipe together my uncle's diabetes has rescinded. I have heard of this happening as you change diet towards more fresh ingredients and lose weight. Of course I'd like to think that it was down to the magic of my barbecue sauce but I guess that's probably stretching the point somewhat although as part of an overall diet change then why not? If you would like to learn more about how you can reverse diabetes by changing your diet then this website is a good place to start. Note:- This recipe can be classed as a diabetic barbecue sauce recipe given the low sugar content although it is not sugar free. There is added sugar in Worcestershire sauce, the teaspoon of which that go Continue reading >>

The Worlds Best Barbeque Sauce (sugar Free)

The Worlds Best Barbeque Sauce (sugar Free)

The Worlds Best Barbeque Sauce (sugar free) It is grilling season, so its time to whip up my secret weapon. I have been adapting and changing this recipe for so many years that I dont remember what I originally started with. All I remember is that I had a halfused can of tomato paste in the fridge I was trying to get rid of, and this recipe was somehow born. I love that it has no sugar, but still tastes sweet andhas this great spicy kick that goes well with just about any meat. I also really love the base of nourishing bone broth, which you can never have too much of.Tonight were grilling bone-in pork ribs from our local farmer with some cornbread. Mmmm, Im getting hungry just thinking about it! 1 1/2 cups homemade chicken stock (or beef or vegetable) 1/2-1 tsp stevia powder (or sweetener of choice) Heatbutter/oil in sauce pan and sautonion for 3-4 minutes until translucent. Add all remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. You can serve it just like this, but I like to boil it down to thicken it a while. I turn down the heat, cover the pan and let it simmer for 20 minutes or so. I also find the longer cooking timemelds the flavors, and it turns out even more delicious. I have used this sauce on every cut of pork, beef and chicken that I can think of. It is a great marinade, basting sauce, oven bakingglaze anddipping sauce.If you are feeding young kids or someone who doesnt like spicy food you may want to add the chili powder a little bit at a time and taste as you go. If you want to make this even healthier, you could let it cool and add 2 tbsp of whey and leave it on the counter over night. Then you wouldhave a sugar-free probiotic condiment. This keeps for 3 weeks in the fridge, and also freezes very well. If you eat as much meat as we do, it wont last you that lon Continue reading >>

( Full disclosure ) Over the past few weeks, Ive been on a mission to come up with a sugar-free, gluten-free, low carb BBQ sauce recipe. Sure, the ultimate time to think about this is grilling season, but I actually love using barbecue sauce for all kinds of recipes throughout the year. I truly believe that the right condiments can make all the difference between something like boring, plain chicken and a rich, flavorful meal. Finding good quality low carb condiments on the market is hard. Theyre usually filled with artificial sweeteners and preservatives, or they just dont taste that good. Then theres your usual garden variety BBQ sauce packed with high fructose corn syrup. Ugh. Prior to this low carb BBQ sauce recipe, I was using this store bought sugar-free BBQ sauce . Its decent, and much better than any other sugar-free one Ive tried. However,the balance of flavors is not as rich and smoky as I would like. Besides, Im not thrilled that the sweetener used in it is artificial (sucralose).It still tastes pretty good and contains no added sugar, so I do recommend it if you prefer not to make your own. Nonetheless, I really wanted to come up with a better, homemade alternative for sugar-free BBQ sauce. I must admit, this challenge was a bit daunting. Making homemade barbecue sauce can be a Big Deal. People have competitions for barb Continue reading >>

6 Low-sugar Bbq Sauces You Need To Try

6 Low-sugar Bbq Sauces You Need To Try

Few condiments are quite as transformative as barbeque sauceit can even make boneless, skinless chicken breasts taste totally crave-able, and that's no small feat. The only problem: Most sauces list sugar or high fructose corn syrup as the first ingredient, and a tiny 2-tablespoon serving can pack as much as 15 grams of sugar. (And, honestly, who really stops at 2 tablespoons? Not us). So we scoured the grocery store for the best-tasting sauces with the least amount of sweet stuff. Here, six tasty varieties that have 7 grams of sugar (or less!) per 2-tablespoon serving. (Trying to eat less sugar? Then check out Sugar Smart Express for tips on how to avoid sugar and cut cravings.) Our favorite thing about this all-organic sauce? Sugar is the fourth ingredient listed, not the first. (Find out 10 surprising foods that list sugar as the first ingredient .) And most of the sweetness comes from molasses, one of the best natural sweeteners you can use ($3.70, annies.com ). Bone Doctors' Carolina Bold Barbeque Sauce No, the name isn't just a play on the bones in your meatthis line of sauce was actually developed by two orthopedic surgeons. This Carolina-style sauce is more tangy than sugarya welcome departure from the cloying sweetness of mainstream brands ($5 to $7, bonedoctorsbbq.com ). Check out these 15 simple condiment recipes that will transform your next barbeque . You can't go wrong with this classic bottle: It's available in most major supermarkets at a really reasonable price ($3.25, stubbsbbq.com ). This sauce is approved for just about every single diet out there: It's vegan, gluten-free , dairy-free, Paleo , and even approved for Whole30. It's the only sauce we found that gets sweetness from 100% pureed dates instead of refined sugar ($6, tessemaes.com ). Dinosaur Continue reading >>

Sugar Free Bbq Sauce

Sugar Free Bbq Sauce

When life gives your family type 2 diabetes, make sugar free BBQ sauce Warning: this post will contain expletives. Its been that kind of a month. Ive been hinting about a health issue my husband was faced with in my last couple of posts. Its nothing major well, I guess it is, but my reasoning is that it could have been a LOT worse. At first wewerent sure exactly what was going on. Sitting in bed one night he started losing feeling down his left side it only lasted for 5 minutes, and it was terrifying. We were worried it was a mini-stroke, we were worried it was a tumor. Your mind very quickly goes to the terrible when something like that happens. Hes only 34. After a shit tonof tests (like, ALL the tests, because thats the only way I could sleep at night), every major concern came back clean. The numbness was chalked up to an abnormal migrane. Bo had one earlier in that day, and the pain from it had gone, but apparently in rare cases, temporary left side numbnesscan occur afterwards. Insane, and also fucking terrifying. I hope that NEVER happens to him again. Then we got a phone call that there was something off with his blood work, and back to the doctor he went, where he was slapped with Type 2 Diabetes. It really is a slap too, the kind of thing that hits you by surprise, and shocks you into doing what you need to do to keep going. Having three kids at home who rely on you helps with the motivation too. Its been a few weeks now. Bo accepted and dealt with the diagnoses better than I thought anyone ever could. He cut out the worst offenders cold turkey gone were the way too many cans of coke he was drinking every day, along with the oversized combo meals. He did everything perfectly, but maybe a little too perfectly, because having just a bite of something now weighs Continue reading >>

Kansas City-style Barbecue Sauce

Kansas City-style Barbecue Sauce

I got called up to a patients room yesterday because the patients daughter felt her diabetic mother was being served an unhealthy lunch. Her lunch included a chicken Caesar salad with a twist (i.e. pasta) and a vanilla pudding. The daughter started by telling me how much insulin her mother takes and that shes a very brittle diabetic (I hate this term, no idea whyprobably because theres no real medical definition). She then went on to tell me that she feels her mother was served FAR too much carbohydrate. While I ran a quick calculation of the patients needs and the carbohydrate content of her lunch, I felt her lunch was perfectly balanced and the appropriate amount of carbohydrate. But, my response was not what the daughter wanted to hear. Apparently, she felt vanilla ice cream (23 grams of carbohydrate) was a better option for her brittle diabetic mother than the vanilla pudding (15 grams of carbohydrate), in terms of carbohydrate content. The moral of the story ispeople care a lot about carbohydrate (even if theyre misunderstood). And sugar. Rightfully so. Most Americans fail to realize that condiments are not only packed with salt, but also with sugar barbecue sauce being one of the worst offenders. Not too long ago, a reader asked if I had a low-sugar barbecue sauce recipe and while I am 100% sure that Ive made one before, I guess it either never made it onto the blog or the blog swallowed it whole. So, dear readerI hope youre reading this! And for all of those whole gave a ton of thumbs up on Facebook this recipe wont disappoint. As I mentioned yesterday, I served this Kansas-City Style Barbecue Sauce with the Crispy Grilled Chicken Thighs . My family loved the barbecue sauce just as much, if not more, than the chicken! Food Network Magazine featured an array of b Continue reading >>

Healthy Bbq Tips For Diabetes

Healthy Bbq Tips For Diabetes

Nothing says summer like an outdoor barbecue. In fact, on Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Labor Day, approximately 75% of Americans enjoy cooking out. Barbecue is one of the most traditional foods in the United States. Barbecuing is a cooking method in which food is cooked slowly over low, indirect heat. The meat is generally smoked, which is the process of flavoring food by exposing it to smoke from smoldering material such as wood. Grilling — a similar method that many also refer to as barbecuing — is generally smokeless and cooks food over direct, higher temperatures. The “barbecue” may also refer to the actual smoker or grill or describe the social event itself. And while barbecuing is associated with summer holidays, outside barbecues range from small informal get-togethers to large group celebrations and may occur all summer long. In addition, many competitions have popped up across the country to determine which grill-masters can claim barbecue bragging rights. With summer in full swing, you may already have a number of barbecue-type social events on your calendar. If so, it is a good idea to take some time to plan for those activities. Doing so will keep you happy by avoiding any negative impact on your blood glucose control. Consider these healthful suggestions to help you stay on track with your meal plan during barbecue season. Barbecues are centered around eating, so food is often overabundant. The amount of food you eat — that is, the portion — is as important as the type. The Create Your Plate method designed by the American Diabetes Association can help you stay within recommended amounts of certain types of food (see “Create Your Plate”). Start with a plate that is nine inches in diameter. With this method, you will draw an imaginary Continue reading >>

Sugar Free Bbq Sauce | Diabetic Connect

Sugar Free Bbq Sauce | Diabetic Connect

* 2 strips of thick bacon, chopped fine (or see note) * 1 clove garlic, minced or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder * 1 can (12 oz) diet (sugar-free) cola - Splenda-sweetened preferred * 1/4 cup low carb (sugar-free) catsup, (or see note) Note 1: If you prefer to leave the bacon out, add 1-3 teaspoons of liquid smoke, to taste, near the end of the cooking. Alternatively, add some smoky flavor using 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika, or chipotle powder to taste. Note 2: If you can't find low carb catsup, leave it out, but add about a tablespoon of vinegar and some sweetener, to taste. 1) Fry the bacon in a saucepan - a 2 qt pan works well. 2) Add the onion and cook over medium until soft - 3-5 minutes. Add garlic at this point if you're using fresh and stir it for half a minute or so. 3) Add the rest of the ingredients, plus about half a cup of water. Stir well. 4) Simmer for 20-30 minutes. It will cook down a bit and flavors will combine. 5) Adjust the seasonings so you have the balance you want - you can add vinegar, artificial sweetener (liquid preferred), or hot sauce. (If it's too hot, adding more sweetener will tone it down.) The recipe makes approximately 10 servings of 1/4 cup each. Each serving has about 3.5 grams of carbohydrate plus 1 gram of fiber. Each serving has about 3.5 grams of carbohydrate plus 1 gram of fiber. Almost all commercial barbecue sauces are loaded with sugar. Most I've seen have 16-30 grams per quarter cup but I've seen them as high as 44 grams! It doesn't have to be that way. This one has a secret ingredient - diet cola. It's best to use one sweetened with Splenda but any will do (aspartame tends to lose its sweetness when heated for long periods). I will be trying this recipe today with the roast I am going to put together. I hope it turns out good! Continue reading >>

Copycat Paula Deen Sugar Free Bbq Sauce

Copycat Paula Deen Sugar Free Bbq Sauce

What I have come to realize over the last year is that we are only limited by what we think is possible. In the case of BBQ sauce it has so many ingredients in the list and a lot of them are things we cant have. Its probably natural to think the molasses or brown sugar are the key ingredients that give BBQ sauce its unique flavor profile. For a long time I assumed making a BBQ sauce would just be impossible. Thats where Paula Deen comes into the picture. I opened up her bottle of sugar free sauce and was astonished. We quickly ran out to Big Lots and bought all the bottles we could find. I havent been able to find it since. Its so expensive on Amazon Its cruelly expensive. So I was left to the task of trying to create my own recipe. I spent weeks eating her BBQ sauce exclaiming, How does she do it?? How does she make it taste like dinner and dessert?? What did she do??? So much so that I was near offending my husband who would reply back to me, You know the wings are good too, Im the one who cooked them on the grill. My first recipe tasted nothing like BBQ sauce. I was very disappointed but happy with it as a steak sauce . The fact that it had been done before kept me hopeful. I had a fantastic sauce to reference with Paula Deenssugar freeBBQ sauce and I had Google. So for a few weeks Ive read every single sugar free BBQ sauce out there and what I have found is a decisive lack of liquid smoke. Not just any liquid smokeit has to be mesquite liquid smoke. I know it says hickory smoke on her ingredients list but trust me the mesquite liquid smoke is what works. How does Paula make her BBQ sauce taste savory, sweet, and almost like a dessert but perfectly balanced for slathering on grilled meats? Its the spices. In particular we will need cinnamon. Are you tired of getting Continue reading >>
