couldn't find Asian pears or sambal at the store. Good substitutes?

Uhhhmmm, pear juice (sometimes in a box) and sriaracha aka "rooster sauce" if you can find it, shouldn't be hard these days.
Asian Pears (nashi) are a cross between apples and pears. They are very crisp and sweet. Either apples or slighly unde ripe anjou pears would be your best bet.
