Top 10 Side Dishes for Steak au Poivre

Here are our top ten picks for sides to serve with that delicious Steak au Poivre:

1 – Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes are buttery and smooth. The roasted garlic adds a deep, nutty flavor that’s hard to resist. We love it because it’s comforting but has a gourmet twist.

The texture is creamy with bits of roasted garlic. We’ve tried many recipes, but this one wins every time. It’s like mashed potatoes leveled up.

2 – Sautéed Mushrooms and Onions

Who else loves mushrooms and onions? We do!

Here’s why this duo rocks: The mushrooms are earthy and meaty, while the onions bring sweetness. Cook them in butter with a dash of herbs.

It’s like steak’s best friend. We think it’s the perfect side, easily making every bite feel complete.

3 – Crispy Parmesan Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Let’s talk Brussels sprouts. These little veggies are crispy, cheesy, and out of this world. Parmesan adds a bold flavor while roasting gives them that perfect crunch. We’ve got the recipe nailed down.

Mix halved Brussels sprouts with olive oil, sprinkle Parmesan, and bake until golden. Simple, right? Our love for these goes way back; they’re always a hit at dinner.

4 – Buttered Egg Noodles

Alright, egg noodles! Simple, buttery, and oh-so-satisfying. These noodles bring comfort with every bite. They’re soft with just the right amount of chew.

Tossed in butter, they get this luscious, velvety flavor. A sprinkle of parsley adds a fresh touch. We’ve always loved them since childhood. Easy recipe: cook noodles, drain, and stir in butter. So good!

5 – Grilled Asparagus with Lemon Zest

Let’s chat about asparagus, friends. We love ours grilled with a spritz of lemon zest.

This dish is tangy and fresh. The grilling gives it a smoky twist. Lemon zest adds a bright finish, making it pop big time. It’s simple: grill asparagus, sprinkle zest, done.

Our go-to for steak, every time.

6 – Creamy Polenta

Got a craving for something smooth? Creamy polenta checks the comfort box. We love how it pairs with the bite of Steak au Poivre.

The texture is silky with a hint of sweetness. Butter and cheese add richness. Our tip: cook it slow with broth for extra depth. This side never fails to impress.

7 – Crispy Onion Rings

We absolutely love Crispy Onion Rings. They’re golden, crunchy, and oh-so-addictive.

The batter, a blend of flour, spices, and carbonated water, is the secret. Fried to perfection, they’re light, airy, and just right.

Dunked in ketchup or ranch, they’re irresistible. They balance our steak with a delightful crunch.

We always make extra. One batch is never enough!

8 – Sautéed Spinach with Garlic

We dig sautéed spinach with garlic. It’s tender with a garlic punch. We sauté spinach in olive oil, then add minced garlic. This side dish is simple yet bold.

It’s vibrant and slightly smoky. Olive oil enhances the flavors. Quick to cook, just minutes and it’s ready. We love the bright green color. Perfect as a side veggie.

9 – Sautéed Green Beans

Alright, green beans! We’re talking crisp, fresh, with a garlic flavor boost. We sauté them in butter.

Toss in some olive oil and garlic, and these beans get elevated. Bright green and full of bite. Great side for those who love veggies. We make it every time.

Just five minutes to cook. Quick, easy, and yum!

10 – Arugula Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette

Let’s talk salads, particularly arugula. This leafy green’s peppery bite is spot on.

Tossed with our balsamic vinaigrette, it gets a tangy lift. Easy peasy recipe: arugula, cherry tomatoes, shaved Parmesan, balsamic vinegar, olive oil.

The vinaigrette? Mix balsamic, olive oil, a hint of mustard, salt, and pepper. Done in minutes.

We munch on this refreshing side with Steak au Poivre. The arugula stays crisp, while the vinaigrette ties everything together nicely. This salad’s a simple fix.
