Southeast Asian Rub celebrates the complex, signature flavors and ingredients of cuisines found throughout Southeast Asia. Lemongrass is the hallmark flavor of this rub that also features spice from chiles, freshness from basil, and a special warmth from star anise.
From Cambodia to Laos, from Thailand to Indonesia, Southeast Asia is a diverse cultural crossroads. Its many cuisines reflect this diversity, including complex flavors like curry that originate in Indian cuisine, cooking traditions and spices incorporated from Chinese cuisine, and even European traditions brought over by early explorers and colonizers. Though a dish’s ingredients might appear simple – the perfect Southeast Asian dish will include a protein, vegetable, and either rice or noodles – the flavor profiles can be so complex that you will taste sweet, sour, spicy, bitter, and umami all in the same bite.
Southeast Asian Rub brings all of this complexity to one easy seasoning mixture that can be used as a marinade or a dry rub on poultry, pork, or fish. For a unique take on a Vietnamese Banh Mi sandwich, try eating your Southeast Asian Rubbed pork or chicken on a baguette with some fresh vegetables and Thai basil.
Spices (including coriander, star anise), paprika, onion powder, granulated garlic, lemongrass powder, cayenne pepper, salt.
Rub on poultry, pork, or fish for fresh, tongue-tingling Southeast Asian flavor! Use to flavor stir-fry and fried rice dishes.
