Course: Side Dish
Servings: 1 cup


  • 1 15- ounce can tomato sauce
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 1 tablespoons red pepper sauce - I like Frank's Red Hot
  • teaspoon liquid smoke flavoring
  • juice of 1 lemon or lime - I've improvised with both, and neither affect the flavor
  • 6 teaspoons Swerve - keto, or 1 tbsp honey (paleo)
  • salt - to taste


  • To a saucepan, add all ingredients except salt. Mix well. Bring to a boil.
  • Allow sauce to simmer for just 5-10 minutes. Allow to cool, and add salt as needed, adjusting to taste.
  • Let sauce cool completely before serving (it doesn't taste as good until all ingredients have married together).
