Homemade BBQ Sauce




Barbecue Sauce - Make it at home

Summer time means grilling, BBQ, and picnics. CKD patients can have a difficult time navigating all the wonders of the outdoor grilling season with all the dietary restrictions. There are dry rubs with high sodium levels; Wet sauces that are high is potassium, sugars, and sodium; High fat meats that have high phosphorus levels. All of these are on the “avoid or limit” list.  

This recipe accommodates many of the problem areas and can relieve some of the stress that occurs when trying to enjoy the outdoor cooking season. The use of tomato paste helps with the potassium levels; limited brown sugar reduces carbs and sugar levels; using minimal salt limits sodium; and using the chile paste listed above, greatly enhances the flavor without adding to the negative aspects of jarred BBQ sauce. 

If you choose to use a pre-made chili paste, I recommend adding 2 chipotle peppers for the smokey flavor, and find one with the least amount of sodium and sugar.


Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup Chile Paste (Recipe Here)
  • 1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp Tomato Paste (no salt if available)
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 2 Tbsp Vegetable oil (Canola or other neutral oil)
  • 1 clove Garlic - minced
  • 1/2 cup Onion - chopped
  • 1/2 Tbsp Ground Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • Black pepper to taste

Yield: About 1 1/2 cups   Portions: 12 Portion size: 2 Tbsp.

Warm a saute pan large enough to hold all the ingredients. When the pan is ready, add the oil and wait a few seconds for the oil to start to shimmer. This means that the oil is hot and ready. Add the chopped onion and let “sweat” for about 3 minutes, or until the onions are translucent. Next add the garlic and cook for less than a minute. 

Now add the tomato paste and mix with the onion/garlic mixture. Cooknig the paste in the onion/garlic will deepen the flavor even more. Cook about 1 to 2 minutes. 

Add the rest of the ingredients and mix thoroughly, and leave on medium heat for another 5 minutes. 


Here you can adjust the flavor for your particular taste; spicier ( more chile paste or cayenne pepper), sweeter (more brown sugar), smokier (add chipotle pepper). Just remember that these add-ons will alter the nutritional data providing for the recipe.

Milk and Phosphorus

Milk and Phosphorus
Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients, and especially those on dialysis - referred to as End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) - are told to limit the intake of milk and dairy products. 
The reason for this is the nutritional contents of milk. One cup of whole milk (8 oz.) contains about 10% of the recommended daily intake (RDI - I know, so many initials to remember), 22% of phosphorus, and 23% of saturated fat. That’s very high for a glass of milk.  Especially because you will find phosphorus in nearly all of the foods we eat. So getting almost one quarter of your RDI in a small glass of milk could  push you over the recommended limit. 
So why is this a problem? People with functioning kidneys can process out excess amounts of nutrients through urination. Have you ever heard the joke about certain vitamins and supplements? It just creates expensive urine. 
That’s right, if you ingest more nutrients that your body needs, you just pee it out. That’s not to say that there isn’t…
