A Pepper Steak requires an elegant wine that can stand up to the meat.

A red wine is needed, but not so big that it overwhelms the meat.

The wine should have both tannins and a good backbone of acidity.

A round and soft Bordaux is an enjoyable wine. It pairs well with many dishes, especially Filet Mignon, Beef Tenderloin, and Pepper Steak. The same goes for a perfectly blended Super Tuscan.

Alcohol can be addictive. Drink in moderation.
