Oloroso Sherry With Steak
Oloroso is the richest of the dry sherry styles and, while it does come in sweeter versions, those aren’t the ones I’d serve with a good piece of beef.
The secret is a splash of the wine on the meat as it cooks: this is the best steak seasoning you’ll ever find, with the added advantage of making the wine match a no-brainer.
The flavours of cinnamon, figs and hazelnuts in Oloroso Sherry make good pairings for all sorts of red meat – from grilled chops to thick stews and slow roasts mellowing in their own juices – while the alcohol slices through the meat grain like a well sharpened knife.
