Wines with Beef Teriyaki

Beef Teriyaki is usually made of beef cut into 1" cubes and skewered with pineapple before grilling. The beef is marinated and basted with a Teriyaki sauce made from Soy Sauce, Brown Sugar, Garlic, Ginger and Sesame Oil.

Matching wines with Beef Teriyaki means matching more than just beef. The teriyaki sauce adds several new dimensions.

Wines that match well with Beef Teriyaki include full flavored wines like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel and most Red Bordeaux wines (since they are usually Cabernet or Merlot based). Big red wines from the Rioja region of Spain will also work. Pinot Noirs and most Red Burgundies may be a little too light to stand up against the teriyaki sauce.
Because of the added sweetness from the brown sugar, Beef Teriyaki matches surprisingly well with pink wines like White Zinfandel.
