OK, so I couldn't resist. While this may not be beef, red meat and Cabernet are a match made in heaven. Lamb is a classic pairing with Bordeaux, but it really is super friendly for all red wines. A preparation like this, flavored with dried chilies, is perfect for a classic Cabernet, one that retains a touch of herbaceousness. The wines of South Africa that rely on the Bordeaux varieties such as Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are known for their smoky and sometimes herbal edges and have plenty of acidity to stand up to the sweet flavors of lamb fat, making this a no brainer.
