Welcome to day two of berry week here in my Kudos Kitchen. The recipe for my Strawberry BBQ Sauce that I’m sharing with you today is one that was born out of necessity.

The problem of having too many strawberries in the fridge and not knowing when they’d all get eaten without them spoiling led me to this tasty brainstorm.

Strawberry Sriracha BBQ Sauce recipe information;

This is an updated post. The original date I shared this recipe was in July of 2016. 

To be honest, this recipe has been on my mind ever since I first made this sauce because it is amazing! This time when I made it I added it to chicken and, let me tell you, it lives up to everything I said about it in the first place…and then some!

The day I made this sauce my mom was over for a visit. When I told her I was planning on making Strawberry BBQ sauce, I think she thought I was crazy.

I thought I might be crazy too, but sometimes you just have to follow your gut and take a leap of faith.

When I made this sauce, I had pork ribs on my mind. However, I’m sure this would taste equally good on grilled chicken, and even fish.

Don’t be afraid to experiment.

  1. Thank you Renee. I have the same problem and will make this recipe. Thank you.

  2. I love the BBQ Sauce you made! Sweet and Spicy is the best combination!

  3. I love this idea…sweet with the savory is the best! I’m going to try it with grilled chicken this week!

  4. First of all, these pictures are gorgeous! I absolutely LOVE the flavors in this!

  5. Yum! I’ve never thought to pair sriracha with strawberries, I absolutely need to try this!

  6. Pretty sure my family would think I am crazy if I told them I was putting strawberries in BBQ sauce, but it sounds delicious and I know they would love it!

  7. What a brilliant idea for barbecue sauce! We love barbecue in the summertime, and I’ve never seen a sauce that calls for fresh strawberries… and I absolutely cannot wait to make this!

  8. I can’t get enough of strawberries these days, and it seems you are in the same predicament as me! How interesting to pair with sriracha and make a BBQ sauce. I bet it is great and I’ve got to try it, since I’m such a berry fan!!!

  9. We love BBQ sauce with strawberries, it’s so flavourful. I love that you used sriracha in this. I can just imagine the taste, sweet heat, my favourite. I also love watermelon for smoking ribs. So good.

  10. How did you know that sweet & spicy BBQ sauces are my fave?? 😉 This sounds and looks delicious!

  11. What a fun combination of flavors!! Love Sriracha, I’ve mixed it with grape jelly before, which was actually a really good spicy, sweet combo. But this recipe sounds so much better!!

  12. What a flavor combo! I don’t think I’d ever think to make a strawberry BBQ sauce. I wonder if I can sneak this by my husband who hates strawberries??? I love the stemware! Those chocolate covered strawberries are so cute!!

    • Thank you so much, Karyn. I’m glad you like the glassware.
      Regarding the BBQ sauce; since the strawberries cook down, their flavor is a bit milder than eating a whole, fresh berry. I’m still not sure if your husband would appreciate the flavor since he’s not a strawberry lover 😉

  13. Fabulous on grilled chicken!

  14. It is strawberry season…what a great recipe! Thanks for sharing!
