After being home for about a month now, and trying not to leave unnecessarily, I'm starting to run out of things. BBQ sauce is one of those things. So, in my desire to make a quality low carb pulled pork in the crockpot, I ransacked the cabinets and concocted a new sauce with stuff I had on hand.
This maple bourbon sauce is a little sweet and, to me and mine, it tastes a lot like I remember baked bean sauce tasting. That's a wonderful thing, folks. So, here is my keto quarantine sauce, which is also my new favorite!
This recipe works best in a specific volume ratio, so that’s how it’s written.
- 1 c (8 fl oz/ 237 ml) sugar free ketchup
- 1/3 c (2.68 fl oz/ 79 ml) bourbon

- 1/4 c (2 fl oz/ 59 ml) water
- 1 tsp sugar free liquid smoke
- 1 tsp maple extract
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp onion powder
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and stir together well over medium heat.
- Bring to a brisk simmer over medium, whisking occasionally.
- When the sauce comes to a simmer, reduce heat to medium-low and continue to simmer, whisking occasionally, for 15 minutes to reduce.
- Remove the sauce from the eat and let stand to cool completely.
