RE: Steak....and what else?
Baked potato would be one of my last choices to accompany a good steak and if I got it likely it would have only butter, salt and pepper on it. I’ve had a fully dressed baked potato about 1 time in the last 5 years and I really enjoyed it but I don’t want one every day or with a really good steak.
Depending on the quality of the restaurant and what sides they did well, my choices would lean toward sauteed mushrooms, steamed broccoli, asparagus, or artichoke, rice or wild rice, sliced tomatoes out of the garden if I’m doing it at home or grilled tomatoes, buttered new potatoes, corn on the cob, grilled squash medley or other grilled vegetable medley.
A favorite accompaniment of mine at home for years was spinach sauteed in olive oil and butter in which a garlic clove had been browned; that’s seldom found on restaurant menus. I can’t recall that I’ve ever tried creamed spinach so I guess I should.
For a salad I like a spinach salad.
Sheesh! What is it with spinach and steak?
