A summer entertaining stalwart, these Mediterranean Beef Skewers should have a place on your table year-round, too! This quick, easy crowd pleaser is a versatile recipe that can also be used with other meats or chicken.
Grilled foods pair naturally with oak aged wines and the array of fresh and dried herbs in the marinade complement herbal and spicy characters in wine. These skewers add the big bold flavors of juicy beef, a bit of smoke, a kick of bright acidity from the cherry tomatoes and caramelized notes from the grilled onion.
There’s a ton of interesting and complex flavors here and we love the intriguing wine pairing with the 2018 The Royal from JM Cellars. The Royal blends Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot into a dark fruited juggernaut that provides a bold complement to the beefy, herby flavor packed skewers. The oak profile of this wine complements the grilled character of the beef skewers while the brightness of tomato accents this big, yet higher-acid red blend.
