Roasted Strawberry BBQ Sauce

When you can find good ripe strawberries, this homemade strawberry BBQ sauce is worth making! Just a few ingredients and it goes well slathered on almost anything on the grill.

AUTHOR: Macheesmo


  • 1 quart strawberries, halved

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

  • 1/3 cup ketchup

  • 2 tablespoons honey

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 cloves garlic

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder


  1. When you do find the strawberries you want to use, cut off the stems, cut them in half and toss them with some olive oil and salt on a baking sheet.

  2. Those strawberries should roast at 450 degrees F. for about 15 minutes. Meanwhile, you can combine and simmer the other ingredients.

  3. Once the strawberries are roasted and charred in spots, you can add them into the pot with the other ingredients.

  4. Now you need to simmer the ingredients together but no need to simmer the ingredients for a long time. A few minutes to combine flavors will be just fine.

  5. Cool the sauce a bit and then blend it up! There probably isn’t enough of the sauce to use an immersion blender so I just transferred my sauce to a normal blender and blended it up!

  6. Once you have this BBQ sauce made, it keeps really well in the fridge for a few weeks.
