I must admit that every so often I get a craving for steak. I know there are better choices but I like to treat myself to a juicy steak every once and awhile. Problem is, all the steak sauces I can find have a lot of carbs. Does anyone know of a low carb steak sauce I can purchase or make?

Have you tried Walden Farms products? I like this:

Why cover a good steak with sauce? I steam onions and peppers and put them on the steak. You could probably use a tablespoon of A1 sauce. I did the last time I had a burger with no problems.

I agree Joyce. If it is a good steak, and a good cut like (rib eye, tbone, or porterhouse etc), all I use is a little salt & pepper, and maybe some grilled onion, peppers, and mushrooms.

Although in moderation, there is nothing like a good juicy steak! I enjoy the flavor of a good plain but marinated steak as is. Maybe a bit of onion or mushrooms, but just a little. I can't believe my wife, she puts ketchup on the best cuts of juicy tender steak!!! That ruins it, might as well have a hamburger. Of course I wouldn't dare tell her that.

All this talk of BBQ… Now I have to get propane and fire up my grill. If you are looking for some good sauce recipes, my best friend is google! I found an awesome bullseye clone that's almost exactly the real thing! If there's no nutritional information, the recipe calculator at is a good tool.

Far as I’m concerned, steak is a diabetic’s perfect food, and why you’d cover it with sauce is beyond me. :) But if you must:

As slight knock-off of A1:
Low Carb/Reduced Sugar Heinz Ketchup and Worchestershire Sauce
Horsey Sauce:
1- 2 Tablespoons of Mayonnaise
2 Tablespoons of Sour Cream
1 Teaspoon of a stone ground mustard
1 Teaspoon of prepared horseradish

Otherwise, Walden farms has a variety of sugar/carb free BBQ sauces as well

Thanks so much. I don't feel as guilty liking steak. I just ordered steak sauce and ketchup from Walden Farms

While you’ve got the grill going, throw on a dozen burgers and Italian sausages for the freezer!

That is a definite. I live in Syracuse, NY and we have had our first week of nice weather in 7 months. I will take advantage

When I lived in Wisconsin we shoveled a path to the grill. With the weather you've had, a snow blower would have been called for at least!

I live in Maryland, us southerners don't wait for the weather to warm up to fire up the grill. We grill year round even with snow on the ground.

What you call snow in Maryland is just a dusting! That aside, here is NC, we see snow so rarely, that I really don't think the folks here know what a real snow storm is! It's only natural to keep the BBQ grill handy all year round, and let those up north and out west worry about the snow. (-; Fifty years of knee deep snow was enough for me, before I moved south. Threw my snow shovels away!!! Now, I just have to worry about the occasional visiting Copperhead snake.

You should have joined us for our twin blizzards. Over 40 inches of snow. Didn't bother to dig out the grill after digging out the sidewalk and car.

BB42 2014-05-11 07:34:00 -0500 Report

Our season snow average is over 125 inches. This was an above average snow year for us, 135+ inches. I wish I were in sunshine!

That would not stop us from using the grill. We keep charcoal year round because a storm can knock out power at anytime.
