The sauce can be made in many different ways. You can add other low carb condiments such as hot sauce, chili powder, lemon juice, balsamic vinegar…

You can also add herbs to it, and substitute the mushrooms with capers or sun-dried tomatoes. It is a very easy sauce to make and you use any ingredient that you have on hand.
