Steak....and what else? Sat, 11/6/04 11:37 AM (permalink)
So...what do you like to eat with your favorite steak? Are baked potatoes the most popular choice?

    Baked Potato seems to be the top choice in restaurants, but I prefer Hash Browns or Home Fries (very done/crispy) to soak up any excess juices from the steak. I also like sweetpotato as an alternate to the tradional starchy side.

      I prefer hash browns, as well. French fries would be next, especially if it's a bistro-type steak.

      I also like to have creamed spinach somewhere on the table.

        I like to roast potato wedges brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with pepper, cayenne and paprika, along with grilled red, yellow and orange bell peppers or spinach sauteed with garlic.

          I like the Baked Spud w/butter & Sour cream... Also like sauteed Portabella shrooms and onions either on top or on the side also.

          I should also add that I like fresh green beans cooked with some bacon and onions also on the side.

            I'm in the mayor's camp,I really enjoy a sweet potato w/ my steak(lamb chops as well)..another personal favorite would be yellow rice.

              Some days---i dont think you could beat Michael Hoffman's suggestions--im not big on baked potatos---other days--a salad and for the juices--garlic bread!

              and lets not forget--Steak and eggs!--extracrispy hash browns please and toasted sourdough!

                  The Sundancer enjoys a medium porterhouse, salad with thousand island, baked potato smothered in butter and a nice glass of red. Mondavi is my favorite.

                      I will take the Gaufrette potatoes or French fried sweet potatoes with any kind of spinach dish............all of this proceeded by a great Caesar's salad.

                        While visiting the Corning facility in Corning NY we all went out for steaks. Everyone "including me" had spaghetti as a side. I guess that's the norm there. Our client insisted on it.

                          Ms Lleechef: The Sundancer has only so much yenom (money spell backwards). She want me to drink Rodney stuff from 1990 and I barely can do Mondavi 2004.

                                You can order for me...as we like the same thing. Just don't order my steak rare.

                                  Porterhouse, medium rare (or black & blue, depending on my mood)...with a dressing-free spinach salad, steamed broccoli, and a bottle of Oldenberg OPV, or Oldenberg Blonde.

                                    There was a time when a baked potato was a must with a steak dinner for me, and then a baked sweet potato worked, but I guess the perfect steak dinner for me today would be thus:

                                    2 Martinis to start

                                    Salad with blue cheese dressing

                                    Strip cut 2", medium rare.
                                    Lightly steamed asparagus
                                    Red (Rodney Strong cabernet would work wonderfully, but other good reds would certainly be accepted).

                                    No dessert, no coffee, just the charms of my beautiful wife.

                                            I love steak with a bernaise sauce or if i grill it i love the tabasco A 1 sauce. I usually roast red skins in the oven with garlic and Montreal seasoning with green beans and bacon. A nice glass of Cline Red and for dessert something that screams Chocolate!!

                                              My favorite steak place in the US serves theirs with a half slice of banana and a fruit plate. Don't knock it 'til you try it. They also have new potatoes boiled in butter.

                                                  It occured to me that as i think on this topic its true that i do prfer roasted to baked--mostly- anyIF the steak is being comsumned during tomato season-i usually have sliced marinated tomatoes rather then any potato at all!--and plaenty of them too!

                                                    Some type of potato. I like it when the restaurant has something special, but I will settle for plain old baked. I also want a crisp salad with blue Cheese dressing. I find that a wilted or brown salad ruins the meal for me, no matter how good the main course is. As you can guess, I am more blue collar than gourmet.

                                                      I do like some type of potato and brocoli. As for the potato, I like steak fries the best absent hash browns as an option. I was first introduced to hash browns at Johnny's Cafe in Omaha. Since this was one of my favorite steak experiences ever, it might have influenced my tendancies towards the hash browns.

                                                        If the restaurant has all the toppings (butter, sour cream, bacon, green onions or chives and cheddar cheese) then give me a baked potato with my steak and some nice steamed broccili and good rolls. However I've noticed a lot of restaurants as of late just have butter and sour cream for the potatoes and if thats the case I'll order the rice pilaf or steak fries if they have it.

                                                          A nice thick porterhouse, medium rare, with sauteed mushrooms, a baked potato and fresh peas. A 1992 Simi Reserve Cabernet would round things out nicely.

                                                            I grilled a couple of steaks over the weekend. A small strip for myself and a two-inch thick, 3.3 pound porterhouse for my grandson. His took a little longer to cook.

                                                            I roasted some potato wedges and grilled some red, yellow and orange peppers to go with the steaks.

                                                            The kid finished his steak and asked if I was going to eat the rest of mine.
