    2 Tablespoons coconut oil
    2 Tablespoons dried, minced onion
    2 Tablespoons garlic powder
    1 cup boiling water
    1 cup reduced-sodium beef broth
    18 ounces tomato paste
    3/4 cup worstershire sauce
    1/2 cup spicy brown mustard
    1/2 apple cider vinegar
    1 cup apple juice (no sugar added)
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 cup stevia in the raw


This sauce is thick and rich. If you prefer a thinner sauce, you can add more beef broth, apple juice, or water until your reach the consistency you desire.

If you prefer your sauce more tangy and less sweet, use only 1/2 cup of stevia.

I cleaned out a large spaghetti sauce jar and stored the sauce in it. This recipe yields 6 cups.


1. Bring water to boil in medium sauce pan.
2. Reduce heat to low and add dried minced onion. Let this sit for 5 minutes so that onion can be reconstituted.
3. Add beef broth, tomato paste, worstershire sauce, spicy brown mustard, apple cider vinegar, apple juice, salt, and stevia. Use a whisk to combine all ingredients until smooth.
4. Bring mixture to a boil on medium heat, stirring constantly.
5. Reduce heat to low and cover. Cook for 2 hours.
6. Turn off heat and let mixture cool completely.
7. Store in an air-tight container in your refrigerator for up to six weeks.
