Southern Smothering Sauce – Mustard Based BBQ – THM FP

My dear hubby is from AL – which means he prefers mustard based BBQ sauces–which are not easy to find here in the mountain west – and definitely a challenge to find a good recipe that is sugar free and THM friendly.  So – I decided to create it myself–based on the flavors that he likes.

Hope you enjoy it as much as we have 🙂

Southern Smothering Sauce – Mustard Based BBQ – THM FP

1 1/2 C mustard (I prefer brown spicy – but any will work)

1/2 C ACV

2 tsp onion powder

2 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp mineral salt

1-2 tsp chicken bouillon powder

¾ tsp stevia (more to taste if you like it sweeter)

2 tsp blackstrap molasses

2 Tbl tomato paste

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

2-3 sprinkles hickory smoke liquid

For variety you can add cinnamon or ginger – or my hubby’s favorite – Franks Hot Sauce.

Mix together – I just put it all in a bowl and use a whisk – easy peasy.

This is GREAT as is mixed with pulled pork or chicken. This does make a thick sauce— I thin it down if needed – or keep thick and use as a base for sandwich spreads, dips, dressings, or over veggies.  It mixes well with plain non-fat yogurt.

Please share any other variations you come up with or fun uses as you ‘make this your own’–thanks!!
