This Is How I Cook
If you have some red wine in your house that you’ve been dying to drink, tonight is the night. Pick one of these amazing recipes and pour yourself a glass. You won’t be sorry — these dishes taste amazing with red wine.
Pinot noir goes great with dishes that have earthy flavors, so if you’re making a dish with mushrooms and truffles, grab this glass of red. If you’re in the mood for barbecue, make Barbecue Beef Brisket from Moore of Less Cooking and have it with a glass of malbec. This red won’t be overshadowed by the flavors of a sweet-spicy barbecue sauce. Another option would be to grab a glass of cabernet sauvignon and enjoy it with a juicy steak or chop. Your options for great wine and food pairings are endless.
Here are this week’s highlights:
Kit Graham of The Kittchen says that the perfect pairing for red wine is her Braciole recipe. Braciole is an Italian meat dish that consists of thin flank steak rolled up with cheese, herbs, and breadcrumbs. The meat is quickly browned before being cooked low and slow in a pool of tomato sauce. This method yields slices of tender beef with swirls of cheese, herbs, and breadcrumbs — it’s easy and elegant.
Slow-Cooked Bolognese Sauce With Sweet Potato Spaghetti
Becky Winkler of A Calculated Whisk says that you should pair red wine with her Slow-Cooked Bolognese Sauce With Sweet Potato Spaghetti recipe. There's nothing more comforting than a slow-cooked Bolognese sauce with sweet potato spaghetti! This recipe is gluten-free, paleo, and much more colorful and nutritious than regular spaghetti and meatballs.
Grilled Icelandic Lamb Chops With Honey Herb Chimichurri
Make these Grilled Icelandic Lamb Chops With Honey Herb Chimichurri tonight; serve it with a glass of cabernet sauvignon and dinner is done. This dish is simple, delicious, and full of flavor. Abbe Odenwalder simply grilled the chops, about 5-6 minutes per side, and served it with a chimichurri sauce composed of cilantro, red onions, mint, and honey. You’ll have dinner on the table in about 15 minutes. Then you can focus on what really matters: the wine. That’s why Abbe Odenwalder is the winner of this week’s SWAT.
