  • Debbie

    What can be used in place of the whiskey?

  • Ellen K Stehouwer

    Made this sauce today to go with Carolyn's ribs recipe. Realized I had no whiskey, so I used rum instead. It was absolutely wonderful!

  • Monique

    Hi there! Can this be made without the whiskey?

    • Swerve

      Hi Monique! You can leave out the whiskey if you'd like, your sauce may just turn out a bit thicker. Feel free to add a bit more vinegar or even a little water to thin out the sauce if needed.

  • Beth

    Made this tonite to go with brisket - DELICIOUS!!! Highly recommend!

  • Carol

    What are the net carbs for this recipe?

    • Swerve

      Hi Carol, the net carbs are 0g!

  • Christine

    Hi. Just curious... I thought that Net Carbs equals 'Total Carbs - Fiber = Net Carbs' ? So doesn't this make this recipe 5g Net Carbs per 1/4 cup since the fiber is listed as 0?

    • Swerve

      Hi Christine, great question! You also subtract Swerve from the Total Carbs to find Net Carbs (since Swerve doesn't affect your blood sugar). So for this reason, the net carbs of this recipe are zero. hope this helps!

  • Brian Olson

    What about the carbs in the tomatoes? Are they cooked off?

  • Debe Loeber

    Mine doesn't seem to thicken up as it simmers. What can I add to thicken it?

    • Swerve

      Hi Debe, you can add a pinch of xanthan gum to thicken the sauce.

    • Swerve

      Hi Gary! Stevia is 200-300 times sweeter than sugar so the conversion is a tricky. Might as well stick with the cup for cup measurement with Swerve! So easy!

    There are different ways to fry tomatoes, but each of them will require the hostess to spend several hours in the kitchen, so this dish is usually better correct prepare on weekends or for special occasions. When tomatoes are roasted, they get a deep taste and are combined with seafood, antipasto and other roasted vegetables. Moreover, they are ideally suitable for application in the baking industry, in making bread or cake with custard. <a href=>how to can stewed tomatoes</a>

  • Shelly

    I really like this , didn't use the full half cup, added one tsp of soy sauce for kick and one tsp liquid smoke to smooth it out. I will definitely make this again.

  • Beth

    I question the accuracy of the carb count. A can of tomatoes would have carbs...but when I looked at a couple of different brands it appears as though the net carbs from the tomatoes would be less than 1g per serving in this sauce, thus making it so they wouldn't have to include it. Just a theory...

    • Swerve

      Hi Beth! Thanks for the message. You're correct. The 7g of carbs would come from Swerve, however, since Swerve is a non-impact carb, you can subtract it!


    Can I use Stevia instead of Swerve and if so is it the same amount ?
