Strawberry Rhubarb BBQ Sauce #BerryWeek

This wonderful barbecue sauce starts by roasting strawberries, rhubarb and garlic before combining it with other ingredients to make a sauce that is perfect for anything you wish to slather it upon.


This is my final Berry Week recipe........



The administrators of our Festive Foodies group asked us to join them for a week long celebration of Summer Berries.  The party started on Monday.  I joined in on Tuesday with a wonderful Main Course Salad.  Yesterday I brought this amazing Blackberry Glazed Chicken to the table.


Today I am sharing a recipe for an amazing Roasted Strawberry and Rhubarb BBQ sauce that you will want to use all summer long.

But first, let's take a look at what the others are sharing today.......

My rhubarb was just starting to come up so it is very small.  I roasted them whole along with the strawberries and garlic cloves.  If you have large stalks of rhubarb, you will need to cut them into 2" pieces before roasting.

Once they are roasted, a quick puree in the food processor is followed by adding seasoning and a simmer on the stove until reduced and darkened to a lovely deep color.


I adapted this recipe from one found on Steele House Kitchen.  It would be wonderful on grilled meat but I used it to top some mini meatloaves that I am sharing today in another event.  


It was delicious and there was enough left to put in the refrigerator to await my grilled pork chops that are on the menu this week.

  2. Roasting the strawberries, rhubarb and garlic add such depth of flavor to a sauce. I can't wait to try this one, Wendy. Perfect on just about any kind of meat, or even fish, I'd say.
