BackstoryEasy, fast, tasty and dare I say healthy?
Such an easy dish to do on a weeknight.
Pork's BFF is really lighter red wines like Grenache, Pinot Noir or wines from the Rhone region of France. Southern Rhone wines are mostly Grenache based blends and depending on where in Southern Rhone they come from they might have some spicy notes.
To keep this baby under $30 I steered clear of Pinot but you could certainly open one. Aresti from Chile makes a Pinot Noir that retails for about $10 and would go nicely. I decided to go with a Cotes du Rhone from Kermit Lynch and depending how frisky I feel that day, I might even add a little heat to the marinade via red chili flakes.
