Dr. Atkins' Steak and Barbecue Sauce (and copies of the Original book)

One quick note about getting copies of Dr. Atkins’ original book: I noticed, when updating my Amazon store (look over there) there are a lot more copies of the book available. I have listed the 1972, 1980, 1984, and 1990 publishing dates. I think up until the 1990 version, they are roughly the same.
Judith, this is the closest thing I could find to a barbecue sauce recipe from my books.

Steak Sauce
11 Tablespoons
1/2 cup Hunt’s Tomato Puree (sauce)
1/4 cup water
5 teaspoons distilled vinegar
1/4 teaspoon orange extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 small clove garlic, crushed
1 teaspoon grated onion
1/2 teaspoon Maggi Seasoning
20 drops of Tabasco sauce
Blend and refrigerate until serving time.

WAIT! I found it (I think). It was included in a Barbecued Spareribs recipe!

Dr. Atkins Barbecue Sauce
1/4 cup chopped onions
1 Tablespoon bacon drippings
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup water
1/8 cup lemon juice
2 Tablespoons tarragon vinegar
1 Tablespoon Lee & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
3 Tablespoons brown Sugar Twin
1 cup Hunt’s tomato juice
3 Tablespoons of soy sauce (how funny, the note says this can be purchased in a health food store)
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 Tablespoon Gold Seal cocktail sherry (optional)
Saute the onion in bacon drippings until brown, add garlic powder and cook 1 minute. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 25 minutes.

  1. We love you! That IS THE recipe !!!! Yea! Thank you 1000 times ! We are foodies and the fact we are going to go back in time to do Atkins again is scary , but this delicious Sauce will help. I hope you are doing well & am sending you good vibes. Your pictures are beautiful, I know you will do well, you already have. You know there are days when I’ve been careful in what I eat that make me feel good in so many ways that I want more days like that ! I say to myself ” this pie, cookie, or whatever sweet it is does not taste as good as a day eating right feels .” That’s going to be my mantra every day. Once again thanks so much. Judy

  2. Thank you so much for this original BBQ sauce recipe for ribs, I’ve been looking for it ever since I threw out my Dr Atkins book from 1972. Yes. I am revisiting Dr. Atkins too, the only diet I was able to stay on for long periods of time.
