We had a medium-dry German Riesling that we knew would go well with an Asian dish with some sweetness. See here for a previous
We cooked Shao Jou (Cantonese Roast Pork) from Supercook. This is
strips of pork marinated in onion, soy sauce, sugar, sherry, ginger and
hoisin sauce. The pork is then roasted.
We served this tasty dish with egg-fried rice and stir-fried pak choi,
a delicious recipe from the Riverford Organics website. The pak choi is
stir-fried in sunflower oil with red chillies, salt, garlic, ginger,
soy sauce and sesame oil.
We paired this meal with a bottle of Tesco‘s Finest Riesling Steillage
2014, a medium-dry German white. It had a creamy sweetness, with
flavours of tropical fruits and pineapple. The wine had just the right
degree of sweetness to cope with the sweetness in the food and was a
very good match.
