Substitute for red wine

Making beef stew later. Don't have any red wine- don't drink it and don't want to buy any. What could I substitute it or with?

Beef stew is great with beer.

Re: Substitute for red wine

you can buy small bottles of red wine which are great for cooking and often have screw tops.

For stew you would probably use most of one of those bottles if not all of it depending on how much stew your making.

Same goes for the beer, one standard bottle of Ale (any decent dark ale is good) should go nicely into a stew.

You don't need to like wine or beer to cook with it as you the finished product won't taste of wine or beer once cooked down.

Re: Substitute for red wine

I agree with Fairfranco as I do not like to drink dry wines but do buy a small bottle of Burgandy for beef stew or pot roast.  I have also used dry vermouth in small amounts. big_smile

Re: Substitute for red wine

With beer especailly you get very little of the taste in the stew, just gives a fuller overall flavour.

Re: Substitute for red wine

I'm allergic to 98% of red wines & can't have wooded wines either - can anyone recommend a white wine to sutstitute red with in gravy's & stews (lamb).  I used a reisling in a gravy today which was from the lamb roast, surprisingly nicer than I expected & even my fiance had some & he rarely has gravy!

Hi Panda, wave

My pick would be a big chardonnay.

(Or, if you could get it, the Tempus Two Melange a Trois ... dribble ).

You could have a look at this:
