Sunday Supper: Red Wine-Marinated, Roasted Beef Tenderloin With Herb-Horseradish Cream

Sunday Supper Jennifer Olvera 8 comments

The first time I made this dish was for Christmas dinner, and it was an instant hit. Who can resist buttery-tender beef tenderloin with a red wine marinade and not one, but two sauces: a pan sauce made with the drippings and extra marinade, and a parsley, dill, and mint-flecked horseradish cream?

From A Polish Country House Kitchen's Red Cabbage with Cranberries

Kate Williams Post a comment

Braised cabbage is like the nerdy younger brother to hip fried Brussels sprouts or effortlessly cool kale caesar salad. Grassy and cruciferous like its siblings, cabbage is simply bigger, bulkier, and (often) less flavorful. But if cabbage is prepared as it is in Anne Applebaum and Danielle Crittenden's From A Polish Country House Kitchen, it has a chance at popularity. First chop a head of the red stuff into rough pieces, then send it on a trip in a red wine sauce. Once tender, finish the cabbage with silky burre mane (butter and flour mixture), and dot it with tart dried cranberries for a vibrant, silky side dish that can go toe to toe with the cool kids.

Nigel Slater's Duck with Figs and Barolo

I'd never thought to pair the fruit with duck legs before reading Nigel Slater's Ripe. The simplicity called out to me. Duck, wine, figs and little else make for a rustic, easy meal. More

We Tried Every Red Wine from Yellow Tail

Drinks Seema Gunda 24 comments

In college, we used to have formals with all the exchange students from England who had come for the year. It was called a "formal" and half the people had British accents and we were all drinking wine, so it was clearly one of the more posh events on the social calendar. Needless to say there was a lot of wine consumed, and funding such efforts on a college budget usually meant one thing: Two Buck Chuck. I wish that back then we had splurged the extra few dollars and traded up to Yellow Tail. This week, we tasted all of Yellow Tail's red wine offerings and the rosé, a total of 11 bottles. Read on for the results. More

BraveTart: Peanut Butter Jelly Time

Sweets Bravetart 7 comments

One of my favorite parts of snuggling up to the latest issue of any given food magazine is catching up on restaurant news in cities across America. New York. Boston. San Francisco. Chicago. Lexington. "Wait, Lexington...What state is that even in?" I can hear you asking. More

Peanut Butter Pot de Crème with Red Wine Suicide

Serious Eats Bravetart 4 comments

The red wine "suicide" is a really great way to use up a splash of this and a splash of that after a dinner party, but by no means do you have to use an assortment of wine. I've made this before using Grenache and Zinfandel, and both worked splendidly. More

Coffee-infused wine and chocolate bitters makes this an excellent (but not too sweet) post-dinner drink. More

Time for a Drink: the New York Sour

Serious Eats Paul Clarke 1 comment

This simple twist on the whiskey sour made the rounds for several decades during the late 19th century under an assortment of names. A base of American whiskey (rye is the desired variety here) is fleshed out with a little fresh lemon juice and smoothed over with a touch of sugar; the crowning touch comes with a float of dry red wine.

Bordeaux 101

Kara Newman 1 comment

Bordeaux is a wine with baggage. I always assumed it was an out-of-reach, snobby wine that was too expensive and available only to collectors and le wine buffs with deep pockets. And while it's true that some Bordeaux wines are indeed expensive (top-of-the line Bordeauxs are snapped up for hundreds or even thousands a bottle!) it's just not true across the line. Another common assumption: Bordeaux wines are all red. Nope. Learn more about the misunderstood wine here. More

Serious Grape: 18 Grenache-Based Wines for Under $25

Drinks Maggie Hoffman 1 comment

It can be full and velvety, or fresh and bright. It can taste like roasted tomatoes or plums, blackberries and black licorice, and sometimes there's a hint of mint and lavender. There are plenty of good ones for under ten bucks, but we've really noticed a sweet spot at $15-20. Here are our notes on eighteen Grenache-based wines that you can buy for under $25. More

Wine for $9: Grenache

Drinks Maggie Hoffman 2 comments

The wine made from Grenache (known as Garnacha in Spain and Cannonau in Sardinia) can be humble or haughty, rough or refined. Grenache can yield pale, delicate wines that are perfect for picnics, or deep gamey wines with a punch of peppery spice. Grenache wines can have concentrated baked-cherry and strawberry-jam flavors, and the high alcohol that results from making wine with very ripe fruit. Some have a fresh green herbal note—look for hints of mint and eucalyptus. They're good barbecue wines and they're perfect for serving with duck or lamb. More

Wine for $9: The Best Boxed Reds

Drinks Maggie Hoffman 14 comments

Last week, we found a few very tasty whites packaged in boxes instead of bottles. We love the long shelf life and environmental benefits of the bag-in-box. It's lighter to carry and fills fridge space efficiently. But they're not all delicious—we did the homework for you and ended up with this list of the best boxed red wines. More

Dinner Tonight: Barley Risotto with Cauliflower and Red Wine

Serious Eats Nick Kindelsperger 7 comments

[Photograph: Nick Kindelsperger] I'm really not one for screwing around with recipes that have worked for hundreds of years. You know, mucking things up by substituting supposedly "healthier" or more "in vogue" ingredients. And believe me, risotto needs no help.... More

Serious Grape: A Mixed Case for Holiday Emergencies

Deb Harkness 3 comments

"If nothing else, get three bottles of sparkling wine into your house or apartment now." [Flickr: bignoseduglyguy] It's that time of year again, when your life is about to get really hectic. Before you hit the panic button, do yourself a favor and go out this weekend and buy a mixed case of wine. With a mixed case of wine in your closet, you'll be prepared for the drop-by visitors, last-minute takeout decisions, and leftovers that can make the most organized person scramble. Most of us remember to buy wine for the family dinners and big celebrations of the months to come—it's the smaller stuff that makes you want to tear your hair out. I'd recommend buying three bottles of... More
