What's your favorite side dish with steak?

Postby ernave » Sun May 15, 2016 7:02 pm

When I grill a steak, I usually make brussel sprouts as the side. I just get the "steam in the bag" ones and saute them in butter.

Anyone have any better ideas?

Mashed potatoes with gravy, seafood, creamy mushroom sauce, grilled mushrooms stuffed with cheese, the right kind of mac and cheese, bruschetta, a nice salad.

Beer battered steak cut chips. That and some roast vegetables. Pepper sauce.

If I am feeling fancy, I do a pasta with arrabbiata sauce as a side..

A really good steak needs no wing-man, but definitely any potato and veggie combo. 8-)

Yours works great. An alternative I really like is asparagus tips with mole, baby red potatoes with ground sea salt and fresh rosemary, a light spinach salad side, and some scotch (Oban's a nice one with steak).

portobellos? I make them with blue cheese and pine nuts. Really good stuff. Haven't thought of them as a side dish though.

That's basically what do except with butter instead of olive oil. Funny how I hated them as a kid, but love them now.

Usually, yes. Grill them for a while, flip em to get rid of the extra juice, then put cheese and whatever else you want in there.

Brussels sprouts with a little lemon, olive oil and garlic, pan roasted and salt boiled potatoes.

Salt boiled potatoes

1 small bag of petite (about 1" diameter) potatoes. washed and unpeeled. I like using small yukon gold.
4 quarts water
1/4 cup Kosher salt.
3 tablespoons butter
1 clove garlic, chopped.
hand full of chopped parsley.
Fresh ground black pepper.
(makes 2 to 4 servings depending on your idea of a serving size)

Melt butter in a cup in a microwave or in a small pan. Add garlic and parsley to melted butter.

Bring 4 quarts of water to a boil in a pan that can hold at least 6 quarts of water.
Add 1/4 cup salt and stir until dissolved.
Add washed potatoes to boiling water and cook until knife tender. (about 12 minutes)
Drain away all water.
Stir the potatoes and break them up a bit.
Add butter, garlic and parsley. Stir again and add black pepper to taste.

No need for any more salt in this dish. As the potatoes cook they will absorb just the salt they need and will not come out too salty.

When speaking with most women I find my capacity to give a damn has been overshadowed by an over abundance of go fuck yourself.

I looked into the abyss. At first I was afraid but then I looked further and studied it. After a while I began to understand the abyss. Then the abyss looked back at me, I smiled and it ran.

A large pan fried sweet vidalia onion.
Baked Potato.
Mashed Potatoes and Gravy.
Baked Sweet Potato.
Homemade French Fries or Chips with white potatoes or even with sweet potatoes.
1 or 2 eggs, over easy.

The Twister Special (see the movie).
Pan Fried Ribeye. Mashed Potatoes. Beef Gravy that qualifies as its own food group. Eggs over easy.

switch it up and enjoy the fuck our of this way more often single than you could living with some chick intent on never cooking and who bitches about whatever you fix simply because she can't cook and you cooking 'makes her feel bad because its a skill she doesn't have and if you use your skill to cook, you're obviously not doing it because you want to but because you hate her and want her to feel bad for not being able to cook.

On top of all that, the less you go out and the more you cook at home, no matter the quality of the meals being prepared, the more she accuses you of being cheap and not wanting to go out because you're shamed of her or you're voting, or...

…god damn I'm glad I am not living with some bitch.

More steak. Maybe bourbon, but definitely more steak.

I'm an asparagus man myself. fresh. and THIN. real men want fat asparagus like we want fat women. we just dont. plus... asparagus makes your piss smell like hell for 2 or 3 days if you eat as much as I do. it's the female equivalent of garlic efficacy vs. vampires.

I cut the last spears from my patch just a few weeks ago. Already I'm looking forward to spring

My Piss smells for 6 months straight during the season :lol:

Its not possible to die from asparagus consumption. I've tried.
