29 Perfect Sides To Round Out Your Favorite Steak Dinner
While chicken is a popular go-to entree, steak dinners are a simple and quick option for both entertaining and busy weeknights alike. You can go all out with fancy filet mignon cuts, or keep it inexpensive (but delicious) with flank steak or sirloin. To round out the meal, pair steak with one of these hearty and delicious side dishes, from Oven-Roasted Asparagus and Perfect Mashed Potatoes to Prosciutto-Wrapped Grilled Okra and Roasted Broccoli. Whether you're cooking for family or friends (or both), everyone is sure to rave just as much over these sides as they are over the steak.
