Before I get to my recipe, I'd like to announce that my new book, The KetoDiet Cookbook is available for pre-order now. It will be out this autumn and will be packed with 150 delicious low-carb, paleo & primal recipes!
So I though that this was a perfect opportunity to share a recipe from the KetoDiet Apps. I really love this BBQ sauce. Although there are more ingredients used, the preparation is simple: just mix it, boil it, chill it & store it! If you have my home-made ketchup already prepared, it literally takes just a few minutes to make. It adds an amazing flavour to meat dishes such as BBQ Pork Ribs or even fried eggs which is how I like to eat them! In fact, this keto-friendly BBQ sauce seems to be popular in the KetoDiet Apps :-)
Brian: "... By the way, love the app! Such great, useful information and the recipes are awesome! Fat bombs, home-made protein bars and that chocolate BBQ sauce are all new to me and I love them. Keep up the good work!"
