Bourbon Barbecue Sauce

This bourbon sauce might just become your favourite barbecue condiment. Make sure you use homemade ketchup rather than a shop bought variety to avoid overloading on salt and sugar.

Makes 1½ cups


  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 1 cup homemade ketchup

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon mustard

  • Hot sauce, to taste

  • ¼ cup xylitol

  • ¼ cup bourbon

  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce


  1. Heat olive oil in a medium-sized saucepan. Add chopped onion and sauté for 2 minutes until browned.

  2. Add ketchup, lemon juice, mustard, a dash of hot sauce (to taste), xylitol, bourbon, and Worcestershire sauce.

  3. Stir and bring to a simmer over medium heat.

  4. Turn heat down to medium low and simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Remove from heat and blend to a smooth consistency.

  6. Serve chilled for best taste
