This sweet and tangy sauce has fewer calories and less sugar than your typical bottled brand, and cuts out high-fructose corn syrup and other yucky additives. It's finger-lickin' good over pulled pork or slow-cooker chicken, mixed with turkey meatloaf, drizzled over salad, or slathered over flatbread pizza.


  • 1 cup low-sodium tomato sauce
  • ¼ cup apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp splenda, brown sugar blend
  • 2 tbsp pyure organic stevia blend
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp ground mustard
