Nikujaga with Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot

The Most Mundane of Japanese dishes meets wine and the result is.....

This maybe a simple pairing but the results were very solid.

Many would say Sake tends to go well with typical Japanese dishes such as the Nikujaga, however of coarse if you get some red wine in the mix with the beef stew like characteristics of Nikujaga, you cannot go wrong.

Have a sip of the red then eat the onion and beef. The well-marinated onion and beef will make the wine even creamier! The onion especially magnified the creaminess. Also a great pairing for those who aren't strong red wine drinkers.
