It is time again for the “Secret recipe club” reveal! I am sure you all know what the club is about, but for the few of you who still don’t know about it, here goes a brief explanation. It is a great concept… each month you are assigned a participating food blogger to make a recipe from and in turn someone else will be assigned your blog. All you have to do is choose a recipe, make it and blog about it on the specified date. The only rule is to keep it a secret! If you are interested in learning more, or want to join the club, please visit the Secret recipe club website.
This month I was assigned Bobbi’s Kozy Kitchen, written by my very talented friend Bobbi. I was so thrilled to get Bobbi’s website!! We are both in the Sunday Supper Movement and I love her recipes, so I couldn’t wait to get started! While browsing through all her delicious dishes, I kept coming back to one that really intrigued me… so I simply had to make it: Roasted Strawberry Barbecue Sauce! How good does that sound? And I can guarantee that it tastes as delicious as it looks. It goes incredibly well with grilled meats and ribs and it is sweet and tangy, with a subtle strawberry flavour.
Thank you so much for this great recipe Bobbi! Please, make sure you drop by Bobbi at Bobbi’s Kozy Kitchen and check out her beautiful site!
Roasted Strawberry Barbecue Sauce
How to make Roasted Strawberry Barbecue Sauce - sweet and tangy, with a subtle strawberry flavour, perfect for grilled meats and ribs!
- 2 lbs. strawberries hulled and sliced in half
- 240 ml - 1 cup ketchup
- 120 ml - ½ cup brown sugar
- 60 ml - ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp maple syrup
- 2 tbsp strawberry jam
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tbsp dry mustard
- 1 tbsp onion powder
- 1 tbsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Place the strawberries in a single layer on a baking pan lined with baking paper. Bake them in a pre heated oven at 205°C – 400°F for about 15-20 minutes or until caramelized. Remove from the oven and allow to cool a bit.
In a medium pot combine the roasted strawberries with the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and then reduce the flame and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent it burning.
Use as any other bbq sauce.
You can use this BBQ sauce on your grilled meats and ribs, just brush it on during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
