Barbecue wedding reception—just the sound of it can make your mouth water. If you think about the delectable barbecue choices that you have, you would instantly get hungry. This kind of reception which is suitable for outdoor and beach weddings can surely be a hit. And with so many flavorful options that you have, you would not have a difficult time choosing what kinds of barbecues to serve to your guests.
Here are some excellent suggestions on tasty barbecues to serve on your wedding reception:
Amazing Skirt Steaks
Skirt steaks are the perfect option for a wedding barbecue. Other cuts of tender steak such as New York, Porterhouse, Rib Eye or Filet Mignon can be very expensive and thick (and are therefore more difficult to cook), skirt steaks on the other hand are inexpensive and they come in just the right thickness that can be cooked for a very short time. You can marinate this in a sweet spicy barbecue sauce overnight or for several days so that the taste will be absorbed by the meat.
Tangy Korean Style Beef Barbecue
This type of barbecue consists of thinly sliced beef marinated in a sweet Korean marinade and grilled perfectly. You can also choose whatever cut of beef you like but the recommended cut is sirloin or anything similar. Aside from beef, you can also go for chicken or pork if you are not much of a beef fan. This barbecue is ideal to serve with rice.
Zesty Chicken Breast Tenderloins in Teriyaki Sauce
For chicken lovers, teriyaki chicken breast tenderloins can be a nice addition to the wedding barbecue menu. Just like with the steak, you have to marinate them in teriyaki sauce the night before. Alternatively, you can use chicken strips and use other kinds of marinade like garlic and herb with lemon, garlic ranch with rosemary, or orange marmalade.
Since there are so many sausages to choose from, it will not be too difficult to make a choice. Cervelat sausages, Italian sausages, Hungarian sausages, and Andouille sausages are just few of the many options you have for this kind of barbecue. Butcher-made sausages can be a wonderful selection because these are smaller in size and are easier to cook.
Mediterranean Chicken Kebabs
A popular Mediterranean dish, Kebabs are meat marinated with a blend of herbs and spices grilled on skewers with vegetables like bell peppers, cucumbers, and onions. Chicken is one of the most popular options for kebab but you can also make use of beef or seafood.
Other Barbecue Options
Pork tenderloin, beef spare ribs, lamb chops, pork and cider sausages, beef burgers, chicken thighs, and vegetable skewers are other barbecue options you can serve for your wedding reception. As for side dish suggestions, you can serve coleslaw, tossed green salad, baked baby potatoes, corn on the cob, grilled mixed vegetables, tomato salsa, grilled endive, rice, pasta with herb oil, tomato and red onion salad, and freshly baked bread.
Barbecue is great for all types of occasions. Weddings can also be a nice event where you can serve scrumptious barbecues. Just make sure that you choose those that would be suitable for the theme of the event and that would be a hit to your guests.
