This question already has an answer here:

The rogue gets a sneak attack on attacks where you have advantage.

Barbarians have advantage on attacks using strength with the reckless attack feature, which doesn't seem to have a limit on usage.

Does that mean I would be able to use the sneak attack on every attack using strength?

Yes, a barbarian can use reckless attack to get sneak attack every turn if they want

Once per turn, you can deal an extra 1d6 damage to one creature you hit with an attack if you have advantage on the attack roll. The attack must use a finesse or ranged weapon.

Whenever you have advantage, you can apply sneak attack as long as you are attacking with a finesse or ranged weapon. The source of the advantage does not matter at all.

... you can decide to attack recklessly. Doing so gives you advantage on melee weapon attack rolls using Strength during this turn.

If you use reckless attack using strength with a finesse melee weapon, you can apply sneak attack to one attack every turn. However, this does give opponents advantage to hit you until your turn comes again.
