This sweet and tangy low FODMAP homemade BBQ sauce is easy to make and great for weeknight dinners, game night appetizers, and summer barbecues. It's also Paleo compliant. Make it a day in advance to achieve even better flavor!




  1. In a medium sauce pan (mine is 2 quarts), whisk together all of the ingredients.
  2. Set sauce pan over medium-high heat and bring to a low boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes, whisking occasionally, or until your desired thickness.
  3. Remove from heat, and once it's cool enough, taste the sauce and adjust seasonings to your taste.
  4. Let cool for about 10-15 minutes before applying to meat; cool to room temperature before refrigerating.
  5. Apply to your favorite meats, like my Instant Pot Pulled Pork (Paleo, Low FODMAP). Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for 7-10 days.
