Dry red wines are a classic pairing with steak
Savvy match: Dry red wines are a classic pairing with steak because of the bold flavors they both possess. Steak a la tagliata uses leaner cuts which benefit from a wine with intense flavor like Malbec to complement the meat’s richness while still cutting through the fat. The finishing flair of peppery arugula completes this dish with a nod to Malbec’s affinity for aromatic greens.
Steak a la tagliata is one of my favorite ways to enjoy steak — simply seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, and rosemary. Tagliata takes its name from the Italian word tagliare, “to cut.” Find the best boneless cut of beef you can; New York, flank, skirt, or hanger. Serve this dish finished with a drizzle of good balsamic, a simple arugula salad, and roasted potatoes.
