Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice.

The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research.

Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Pinot Noir are great choices for Steak. After all, beef and red wine are a classic combination. Generally, leaner steaks go well with light or medium-bodied reds, such as pinot noir or merlot, while fattier steaks can handle a bold red, such as cabernet sauvingnon. The Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Merlot with a 4.3 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 20 dollars per bottle.

Robert Mondavi Napa Valley Merlot

83% Merlot, 7% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc, 5% Syrah. This 2007 Merlot exhibits bold aromas of wild blueberries, red raspberries punctuated with hints of cassis and Ceylon black tea. Medium-bodied, with a velvet mid-palate, this wine's sensual flavors are supported by small additions of Malbec, Cabernet Franc, and Syrah which contribute to the fine-grain, softly structured tannins, broad mouthfeel and abiding finish.
