Substitute for red wine in a recipe

Recommended Posts

I recently subbed 3/4 cup beef bone broth and 1/4 cup unsweetened grape juice for 1 cup of wine (in a sauce for a BIG pot of meatballs). It was.... close, although missing some of the bite of wine. Next time I might mix in a bit of an approved vinegar to get some acid in there.

besides substituting another ingredient to provide acid, as suggested above, deepening earthy, salty, umami flavors helps give complexity too. Dried porcini, salt-packed anchovies, salt pork or bacon.
