Try a Rosé to Tame and Complement Sriracha’s Spice and Fire
Tassel Ridge Sriracha Pork Kebabs are spicy! A red wine will amplify the spice and fire, but a rosé will tame and complement the fire. Tassel Ridge Steuben, with its own slightly spicy finish, makes it a great pairing for these spicy skewers!
Tassel Ridge® Sriracha Pork Kebabs
- 3 Tbsp packed brown sugar
- 1½ Tbsp Sriracha sauce
- 1 tsp cornstarch
- 2 12-oz pork tenderloins, trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
- vegetable oil spray
- ¼ cup minced fresh cilantro
Whisk sugar, Sriracha, and cornstarch together in bowl. Set aside 1½ tablespoons Sriracha mixture. Add remaining Sriracha mixture to pork. Toss to coat. Thread pork onto 4 12-inch metal skewers, leaving ¼ inch between pieces. Spray both sides of meat generously with vegetable oil spray. Grill skewers over hot grill until well charred, 3 to 4 minutes. Flip skewers, brush with reserved Sriracha mixture. Grill until second side is well charred, 3 to 4 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 140°F. Put on serving platter. Tent loosely with foil. Let rest 5 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serves 4.
Wine Recommendation—Tassel Ridge Steuben
Steuben is a semi-sweet, light, fruity style rosé with cherry and apple notes and just a hint of cinnamon on the nose and cherry and apple flavors on the palate with a slightly spicy, tangy finish. Made entirely from Steuben grapes, Steuben is perfect as an aperitif or pair it with an Asian stir-fry, other spicy dishes, or chicken salad. Serve chilled.
