This strawberry honey mustard South Carolina Style BBQ sauce will put a fruity spin on this spit fire classic! Using Tessemae’s olive oil based honey mustard, this sauce is sweet and tangy, perfect for summer grilling.


Units Scale
  • 1 cup Tessemae’s Honey Mustard
  • 1 cup finely chopped Onion
  • 2 Tbsp Butter
  • 2 Cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup Golden Balsamic Vinegar (Regular can be used here for a stronger flavor)
  • 1/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 3 Dashes Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 Dashes Hot Chile Sauce
  • 2 cups Diced Strawberries


  1. In a large saute pan, melt butter until simmering. Add in onion and cook, stirring occasionally until translucent and just beginning to caramelize. Add in minced garlic and stir until fragrant.
  2. Once the garlic is fragrant, add in the balsamic vinegar, and stir. Add in brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, chile sauce and then diced strawberries.
  3. Bring the mixture to a simmer and simmer about 10 minutes until thickened.
  4. When thickened, remove from heat and allow to chill in fridge before using as a marinade or sauce.
  5. When cool enough, pour the sauce from the saute pan into a food processor, and blend until nearly smooth. If there are a few bits and pieces and chunks, that is okay. Use as sauce or marinate.

To Use:

  1. For grilled chicken – pour half of the sauce over an 8 piece cut chicken. Allow to marinate for about 1-2 hours, or even over night. Save the second half of the sauce for the BBQ.
  2. Preheat the grill, to medium high heat. Place chicken on pre-heated grill and using a brush, baste the chicken with the remaining Strawberry BBQ Sauce.
  3. Allow the chicken to cook about 5 minutes per side, and only flip once to allow chicken to cook and char appropriately.
  4. Cook chicken until each piece is heated and cooked to proper temperature. Remove from the grill, and plate.
  5. Cover the plate with chicken with foil and allow the chicken to rest for about 5-7 minutes before digging in.
