Drink pairing tips for Cheesesteak

  • Syrah and ribeye


    When considering what goes best with ribeye, we recommend a glass of Syrah, it truly complements the dish as it provides a counterpoint to the richness of the marbled meat.


  • Old Fashioned and porterhouse


    If your food palns include Steak, then you should consider helping it along with some cocktail. We find that a Old Fashioned, with its hits of spice tones, serves as the best pairing to the dish.

  • The perfect match for filet mignon with pepper sauce

    Experts often pair filet mignon with pepper sauce with a glass of Chardonnay, a popular white wine.

Factoids about Cheesesteak

  • 23 pounds of delicious

    Molly Schuyler knows that you can never have too much of a good thing. They proved this by eating 23 pounds of prime rib, setting a world record in the process!

  • The priciest dish

    If you have recently won the lottery, or you just happen to have $300 lying around, why not spend it on indulging in the world’s most glamorous, and most expensive, olive wagu beef?

  • The go-to pairing

    One should always compliment their food with a drink that doesn't take away from the meal. If it’s steak you’re eating, we recommend pairing it with a tea. The tannin-rich flavors of the tea won’t detract from the flavors of your steak.
