Bordeaux wine pairs with wide variety of different foods. One of the pairings that works best is a simple steak AKA Bordeaux Wine Grilled Beef. The fat content in the beef and the tannins found in the wine produce the equivalent of a party in your mouth. This is made even better, because Bordeaux Wine Grilled Beef is one of the easiest dishes to prepare.
There are two keys to making beef. Let it come to room temperature before cooking and, don’t over cook it. Not everyone wants their beef like Hannibal Lecter. Although he had the right idea. Dr. Lecter had a taste for Bordeaux wine. In fact, the Doctor enjoyed a bottle of Petrus while dining on a member of the Baltimore Philharmonic Orchestra.
Beef is versatile. It’s happy grilled, roasted, pan seared or in some cases raw. It does not require much seasoning. Kosher or Sea Salt and fresh ground pepper are all you need. The sweet, earthy flavors found in Bordeaux wine, add to the sensations and flavors. Rich textures found in many red wines and beef make great friends.
