Going to be making dinner braised short ribs, mashed potatoes and side to be named later (see my post in the Food & Cooking Questions and Discussion section) I would like to add a nice red wine to the meal but really not knowledgeable when it comes to pairing wines and dishes. Does anybody have suggestions? Would a cabernet sauvignon be acceptable?
I was also thinking of adding some of the wine into the cooking of the short ribs so my additional questions are: 1) Is this okay to do? 2) Is it still okay to serve that same wine with dinner or would a completely different type be needed for the meal?
