Here are the ingredients you’ll need to make this delicious steak with curry and red wine sauce recipe:

  • 2 side steaks or filet mignon (around 6-8 oz each) or 4 strip steaks (around 3-4 oz each)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon oil (red palm or another neutral oil)
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1/2 cup beef broth (or chicken broth)
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

Note: If you prefer, you can substitute the beef for lamb chops, short ribs, or even chicken breast. Do not overcook the chicken, as it will dry out quickly. For a vegetarian option, you could substitute the meat for mushrooms, tofu or cauliflower steaks.

It is important to choose high-quality meat cuts. I recommend using a cast iron skillet to get an excellent sear and flavor in your steak. Don’t forget to buy a bottle of red wine, as it is essential in making the wine sauce.

This recipe is incredibly versatile, so don’t be afraid to get creative with it! Here are a few substitutions and variations to consider:

– Protein: While this recipe is written for beef, you can easily switch things up with chicken, lamb chops, or even short ribs. If you’re using chicken breast, reduce the cooking time accordingly.

– Spice level: If you prefer a milder curry flavor, simply reduce the amount of curry powder. Alternatively, if you want to kick things up a notch, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes.

– Wine: You can use any type of red wine for the sauce, but stick to something that you would drink on its own. I recommend a medium-bodied wine like Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot.

– Butter vs. oil: If you don’t have butter on hand, you can use olive oil or another neutral oil instead. Just keep in mind that the flavor will be slightly different.

– Pan seared steak: If you don’t have a cast iron skillet, you can use any heavy-bottomed pan. Just make sure it’s oven-safe and can withstand high heat.

– Mushroom sauce: If you’re not a fan of curry flavor, skip the curry powder and make a mushroom sauce instead. Simply sauté sliced mushrooms in butter until they’re browned and tender, then deglaze the pan with red wine and beef broth. Let it simmer until it reduces by half, then stir in a splash of heavy cream or sour cream for richness. Serve over your favorite cut of steak or protein.

Whatever substitutions or variations you choose, make sure to taste as you go and adjust accordingly. Happy cooking!

One of the best things about this steak with curry and red wine sauce recipe is how versatile it is when it comes to pairing with side dishes. The rich, savory flavors of the dish go well with a variety of foods, from simple roasted vegetables to more complex starches like rice or pasta.

For a delicious and balanced meal, I highly recommend serving this steak alongside some steamed greens or roasted root vegetables. The bitterness of the greens will help cut through the richness of the sauce, while the earthiness of the roasted vegetables will add depth to the dish.

When it comes to pairing wines, you can’t go wrong with a full-bodied red like a Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. The tannins in these wines will complement the richness of the dish, while the fruity notes will provide a nice contrast to the spice of the curry powder.

If you’re feeling adventurous or want to mix things up a bit, you can also try pairing this dish with a bold white wine like a Chardonnay or Viognier. These wines will provide a nice counterpoint to the spiciness of the curry powder and bring out some of the more subtle flavors in the dish.

No matter how you choose to serve and pair this delicious steak with curry and red wine sauce recipe, I’m confident that it will be a hit at your next dinner party or family gathering. So fire up your grill or cast iron skillet, open up a bottle of your favorite red or white wine, and enjoy!

To store this dish, first, you should let the steak rest before slicing it. Then transfer both the steak and the sauce to separate airtight containers before placing them in the fridge.

If you’ve made extra steak or sauce, freeze them to use at another time. The steak and sauce can last up to three months in the freezer, but make sure to label your containers with clear dates so you can remember when they were frozen.

Reheating is easy, but requires a bit of extra care. Slowly reheat the steak slices in a skillet on low heat. To reheat the red wine sauce, it’s best to do it over low heat and allow it time to reduce gradually while stirring often.

The combination of the spices, the tenderness of the steak, and the richness of the red wine sauce make this dish a must-try!

To ensure the perfect steak with curry and red wine sauce, follow these tips that will make your dish a mouthwatering masterpiece.

Firstly, when cooking meat, make sure it’s at room temperature before cooking. This allows the meat to cook evenly and ensures that it is juicy and flavorful.

Secondly, season the meat thoroughly with salt and pepper on both sides. The seasoning will add depth of flavor to the dish and complement the curry and red wine sauce.

Thirdly, when searing the meat, use a well-heated pan with some oil or butter to prevent sticking. A cast-iron skillet is a great option for achieving a beautiful crust on the steak.

Fourthly, pay attention to the heat level while cooking the steak. For thick steaks like ribeye or filet mignon, start with high heat to sear both sides, then lower it to medium-high to cook through.

Fifthly, once the steak is cooked, let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it so that the juices can redistribute throughout the meat.

Lastly, when preparing the curry red wine sauce, ensure you use good quality ingredients such as Japanese beef or short ribs in combination with a high-quality red wine to make it rich and flavorful.


As a chef, I understand that cooking can be daunting, especially when trying out new recipes. Therefore, to help you master this recipe with ease, I’ve compiled a list of frequently asked questions (FAQs) about this steak with curry and red wine sauce recipe. Keep reading to find answers to some of the most common inquiries surrounding this easy-to-follow recipe.

What does red wine do to a curry?

When pairing wine with meat dishes, it’s important to note that the wine can have a softening effect on the meat. Additionally, the floral notes in the wine can become more pronounced when paired with the right dish.

Can you put red wine on beef curry?

After extensive research, it has been discovered that Pinot Gris and Bordeaux Blend red wines make the perfect pairing for curry beef, and I am excited to share why.

What wine goes well with beef curry?

When serving dishes with vibrant and potent flavors, it’s best to set Gewurztraminer aside and opt for a drier Provence rosé or a red wine. Primitivo or zinfandel, on the other hand, have the strength and sweetness to balance out the spiciness.

What beef steak is best for curry?

When considering what type of meat to use in your curry, opting for chuck steak would be an excellent choice. This cut is sourced from the shoulder area of the animal and is recognized for its tenderness accompanied with a considerable quantity of marbling and a low amount of visible fat. Although it is a well-used cut, it contains a higher quantity of collagen making it a well-suited cut for your every curry need.
