i'd say something hearty & stew-y, especially as we approach the winter months. maybe osso bucco? or a lamb stew?

I love a good beef stew or beef burgundy a la Jacques Pepin.

Other than oatmeal, what ISN'T?

I like AEC's answer. But seriously, it depends on the red wine. Is it dry, sweet, fruity, high alcohol? With a nice Bordeaux style wine I like to braise meat like shortribs or beef cheeks in the same wine that I will be drinking. I like to drink a Rhone varietal with lamb , like Syrah. The spices and herbs that you cook the meat with will also make a big difference.

Steak frites. But really, anything.
