What to eat with steak

by Emily Gilbert |

Unless you're a vegetarian, steak is one of those meats that always feels like a real treat to have for your dinner. After all, it's not the cheapest to buy!

That's why it's even more important that you serve your steak with some delicious sides along with your peppercorn sauce. After some inspiration? We've got you covered.

Honey roasted carrots

Taking just minutes to put together, this recipe uses whole carrots bathed in sweet honey and seasonings and roasted until tender and caramelised.

Potatoes au Gratin

There's something so very comforting about this side dish which is naughty but seriously delicious with a blanket of creamy, cheesy sauce. What more could you want?

Alternatively, for something a little lighter, what about cauliflower cheese?


A side that goes well with steak and chips, a creamy and colourful coleslaw requires just a few ingredients and is easy to make ahead of time.


One of the most popular choices, you can't go wrong with salty, golden chips alongside your meat. Skinny, chunky, wedges, baked or air-fried, how will you have yours?

Sautéed garlic mushrooms

Garlicky, buttery coated mushrooms that are oh-so-simple to make, you'll adore the silky sauce.

Corn on the cob

Simple but tasty, corn on cob is right at home next to a steak.

Roasted baby potatoes with rosemary and garlic

What can we say - we love a carb! The addition of rosemary, garlic and salt truly elevates the humble baby spud and they'll go perfectly with your steak.


Ok so it might not be as exciting as some of our other suggestions but if you're after a healthier choice, a side salad is the way to go (and will have you feeling super smug too). You could even bulk it up with some healthy couscous.

Roasted vegetables

For your veggie fix, crispy, roasted vegetables make for a great accompaniment.

Mashed potato

If you're making mashed potato, you want it smooth and creamy - and this recipe will help you do just that.

Lemony herb couscous

It might not be the first thing that comes to mind alongside a steak but as another healthier option, this couscous recipe makes for a light side.

Cheesy baked asparagus

With just four ingredients, you'll have a tray of cheesy asparagus to enjoy in as little as ten minutes.
