Recipes to pair with Syrah From El Dorado Wineries

Holly's Hill Pork and Syrah Anisette

A take on the classic Boeuf Bourguignon, altered here to complement the complex flavors of Syrah.


Serves 2 but can easily be doubled and so on.


4 oz. Bacon
1 lb. Pork roast, cut in 1 inch pieces
1 Onion, chopped
2 Garlic cloves
6 oz. Mushrooms, sliced
1/2 Bottle of Syrah + 2 tsp
1 Rosemary sprig
2 Bay leaves
1/2 tsp Anise
salt and pepper


Cook bacon until crispy and remove from pan leaving 1 tsp of the drippings behind. Add the pork roast to pan with salt and pepper to taste and cook until browned. Remove pork and add chopped onion and whole garlic cloves. Cook until lightly browned and add sliced mushrooms. When mushrooms are tender, put onion/mushroom mixture in a crock-pot along with the bacon, pork, and remaining ingredients. Cook on low for 2 hours to all day (The longer it cooks the more tender it will be). Just before eating, add 2 tsp of Syrah, season with salt and pepper, and serve with crusty bread and a glass of Holly's Hill Syrah. Bon Appetite!
