Paella is a traditional Spanish rice dish from the city of Valencia. It is one of the best-known dishes in Spanish cuisine. Paella got its name from the wide, shallow traditional pan used to cook the dish. There are so many paella versions from the traditional to black paella, however, this Spanish paella is about adding some deep flavor with beef stock and a few ounces of beef to add a depth of flavor.

You can add some chili flakes or a teaspoon of homemade hot sauce to level up the heat of this dish. You can also add some fresh herbs such as dill and rosemary to elevate the simple and traditional flavors. If you don’t want beef slices then you can substitute them with slices of chicken. Also, you can also add some vegetables such as minced carrots, green peas, and some celery.

This seafood Spanish paella is perfect with white wines both light and medium-bodied. Here are the top picks:

  • Sauvignon Blanc
  • Albarino
  • Chardonnay
  • Semillon
