  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix the beef bouillon cubes and water in a cup until the cubes are softened and beginning to dissolve, and pour the water and bouillon cubes into the saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the cubes. Mix in the tomato paste, sucralose sweetener, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, liquid smoke flavoring, salt, cider vinegar, and hot pepper sauce. Stir until the sweetener has dissolved.
  2. Bring the sauce to a simmer, reduce heat, and simmer until the flavors have blended, 25 to 30 minutes. Stir frequently. For best flavor, cover and refrigerate overnight. Store in refrigerator up to 1 week.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This recipe still requires a few modifications to be sugar free. You have to use sugar free dijon mustard, and it's hard to find Worcestershire sauce that doesn't have high fructose corn syrup ...

I am always looking for recipes to suit my husbands type II diabetes. This one is a winner. Nice rich flavor without that fake sugar taste. This is terrific. Thanks for sharing heleneshaw.

Great sauce! Thick and tangy and smells good! I didn't have broth cubes, so used a packet of Lipton beefy onion soup mix. A new low-carb fave!

My review of this recipe was horrifically edited. I am so disappointed in Allrecipes for doing that. This recipe is not good and was a waste of money. They way my review was re-written does n...

I scaled everything down by one-half. Using another recipe, I boiled the ribs to tenderize them then put this sauce and the drained ribs in a tin foil wrap. Out on the BBQ and it came out great...

This makes a lot of sauce. Too bad, because neither my husband or I cared for it. The flavors are just off. I'm a pretty experienced cook and don't know what I can do to "fix" it. Still looking ...

I changed it up a bit, and then loved it. I used dry Colmans Mustard instead of Dijon, powdered onion and added more smoke and some cinnamon. I just have to figure a way to add the tomato witho...

Love this as it but also because it's easy to customize to taste. I used beef broth instead of water. Also if you want a more north east style bbq swap half the splenda for sugar-free maple syru...

Amazing recipe. Having a diabetic in the house, this recipe allows us to have more meal selections.
