- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 cup minced onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 beef bouillon cubes
- 1/2 cup hot water
- 3 (6 ounce) cans tomato paste
- 1 cup granular sucrolose sweetener (such as Splenda)
- 3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 3/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 3 tablespoons hickory-flavored liquid smoke
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup cider vinegar
- 1 tablespoon hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco), or to taste
Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook and stir until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix the beef bouillon cubes and water in a cup until the cubes are softened and beginning to dissolve, and pour the water and bouillon cubes into the saucepan. Bring to a simmer, stirring to dissolve the cubes. Mix in the tomato paste, sucralose sweetener, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, liquid smoke flavoring, salt, cider vinegar, and hot pepper sauce. Stir until the sweetener has dissolved.
