An Asian BBQ party might not be the first thing to come to mind when the desire to spark up the grill overtakes you. But once you explore the flavors of Korea, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia and the Philippines, you’ll discover how these amazing flavors go hand and hand with your backyard grill.

Here at Superstar Cookout Menus, we believe the key to a fantastic cookout or barbecue is to have food choices that go well together and flavors that compliment each other. And what better way to ensure your cookout is a success than to use well-known, time-tested flavor profiles.
For our purposes, a “flavor profile” is the immediately identifiable combination of flavors that define a specific cuisine. It is how different regional ingredients are put together to create a unique and memorable dining experience.
For example, the idea of “Mexican food” conjures different food images and produces the anticipation of different flavors than if I say “Asian food” or “Cajun food”.
Ideally, creating the perfect cookout menu should be as simple as possible. To simplify the process, we create fictitious restaurants with flavor profiles famous the world over. As a result, each restaurant has a collection of recipes and food choices that makes creating the perfect cookout menu a snap.
Just put together a menu from the same flavor profile “restaurant”, and you are sure to have a memorable cookout or backyard BBQ that keeps your friends and family talking for weeks to come.
When you want to throw a Asian BBQ party, just head to the Asian Favor Company flavor profile. There you will find a collection of recipes chosen to take you on an Asian tour through food.
Flavor Profile: Korean, Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, Filipino and Indonesian flavors with peanuts, cilantro, soy sauce, chilies, fish sauce, garlic, ginger, green onions and sesame seeds.
Inspiration: Bustling Asian cities with sweet, salty, sour and spicy combinations of ingredients and sauces.
Think walking down a crowded side street full of vendors with endless combinations of flavorful food from all over Asia.
My take: Grilled beef, pork and chicken marinated for flavor, basted with sticky glazes and served with dipping sauces and Asian inspired sides.
Maybe you need some inspiration to get the creative juices flowing for your Asian BBQ party.
