Steak works really well with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Pinot Noir. 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. One wine you could try is Maddalena Merlot. It has 4.8 out of 5 stars and a bottle costs about 19 dollars.

Maddalena Merlot

Maddalena Merlot offers aromas of ripe fruit and oak spice with hints of vanilla and anise. Ripe fruit flavors include bright plum and raspberry. Fruit flavors greet the palate and soft tannins frame the fresh texture that coats the mouth.

Tips

Health Tips

  • Unfortunately feta cheese is high in sodium, so if you're watching your sodium intake you might need to substitute another cheese. Some say rinsing the cheese also reduces its sodium content.

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • With feta cheese, a little goes a long way, so you probably don't need to worry about using low fat varieties (plus, research suggests people who eat full fat dairy are thinner than those who eat reduced fat products!)

Price Tips

  • If you find meat (especially grassfed and/or organic meat!) on sale, stock up and freeze it. Ground meat will stay good 3-4 months, while steaks, chops, etc., will be fine for at least 4 months.

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

Cooking Tips

  • To keep your eyes from stinging and watering while cutting onions, trying popping the onion in the freezer for 15 minutes before you plan to start cooking. Chilling the onion slows the release of the enzyme responsible for teary eyes.

  • You should not store your onions with your potatoes because the gases they emit will make each other spoil faster. For more information about selecting and storing onions, check out this lesson about onions in the academy.

  • Whether packed in salt or brine, it's a good idea to rinse capers to remove some excess salt. In case you're wondering what the difference between capers and caper berries is, capers are flower buds, while caper berries are the product of the same flower buds being allowed to mature and produce fruits (i.e. the caper berries!) Most sources say the two are not interchangeable, as they differ in both size and flavor.

  • Traditionally, feta cheese is made from sheep's or goat's milk (or a combination of the two). Now some supermarkets sell "feta-style" cheeses made from cow's milk. If you want the authentic feta experience, be sure to read the label carefully.

Green Tips

  • Choose organic, grassfed beef whenever possible. If you're worried about your grocery budget, try eating a few vegetarian meals so you can afford better meat!

  • Good news for mushroom lovers: according to the Environmental Working Group (EWG), mushrooms are pretty "clean" when it comes to pesticide residue, so you do not have to splurge on extra-expensive organic mushrooms (unless you want to!)
