Many people enjoy wine before or after dinner because they’re afraid of pairing the right wine with their meal. After making a succulent supper, you don’t want it botched by a heavy wine, or vice versa. Especially if you’re grilling food out on your fire pit, wine may seem out of place. Here is a delicious recipe which you can enjoy out on your fire pit and corresponding wine which will complement your meal:
Melt-in-your-mouth Steak- This grilled steak recipe is all about the marinade. In a medium bowl, mix 1/2 cup of balsamic vinegar, 1/4 cup of soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of minced garlic, 3 tablespoons of honey, 2 teaspoons of black pepper, 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce, and a dash of cayenne pepper. Cover and marinade the steaks for a day. Then, grill on medium heat until desired doneness.
Serve with traditional potatoes and vegetables. Peel potatoes and boil them on the stove for about 10 minutes or until they are medium soft. Then, cut them into half-inch slices, coat them in olive oil and rosemary, and grill them for about five minutes on each side or to your liking. Cut onions and colored peppers into generous slices and toss in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Either in shishkabob style or wrapped in foil, place these on the grill until desired tenderness.
A flavorful Cabernet Sauvignon will complement the smoky taste of the meat, and bring out the red flavor of the steaks. A toasty Zinfandel with mocha or spicy finish will also accentuate the smoky flavor of the steaks.
