We love a good BBQ sauce, but it’s so difficult to find a pre-made bottle at the store that isn’t loaded with salt or preservatives!  I made this easy sauce to enjoy on top of some brisket, and it’s been a favorite in our kitchen… We don’t buy pre-made BBQ sauce anymore, when this recipe is as simple as it is.

This no salt added BBQ sauce is great to brush on ribs or chicken before grilling – and adds a ton of flavor to any meat. I also use it to make my low sodium slow cooker brisket recipe. It can also be used as a dipping sauce – it’s perfect for my low sodium oven baked fries!

How Do I Make Low Sodium Barbecue Sauce?

  1. In a medium-sized bowl, add the minced garlic, apple cider vinegar, tomato paste, and stock. Whisk well until the tomato paste has dissolved into the sauce and is no longer chunky.
  2. Add the brown sugar, whole grain mustard, garlic powder, onion powder, and liquid smoke to the bowl. Mix well again to combine.
  3. Use sauce immediately, or store in an air-tight container (I like using mason jars with lids!) in the refrigerator for 1 week.

Notes

  • To reduce the sodium even more, you can substitute the 1 tablespoon of mustard for 1 teaspoon mustard powder. I like the texture of whole grain mustard, so I use it in this sauce, but mustard powder works just fine! I also have a low sodium mustard recipe you can make with mustard seeds from scratch.
