Beefy Reds

14th January 2016

Waitrose Soft and Juicy Chilean Red £4.99/75cl
The recipe below makes the best beef stew you’ll ever taste, and this pairing proves that you can buy a value cut of meat and a value wine, and still eat like a king. The Chilean red is a gorgeous match, with lovely round, velvety plum and cherry flavours.

Drink it with...Ox cheek stew with orange & star anise
Rich and melt-in-the-mouth, this slow-cook dish makes for a deliciously hearty dinner.
