Barbecue sauce seems to be one of the first condiments to go when people switch to a low-carb lifestyle. That is because traditional barbecue sauce recipes and store-bought brands are loaded with sugar. Well, I am putting barbecue sauce back on the low-carb table!

• 1 tablespoon salted butter
• 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
• 2 teaspoons onion powder
• 1½ teaspoons liquid smoke

• ¼ teaspoon sea salt
• ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
1.Combine all of the ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
