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.

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!

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.

...................... a Porterhouse steak........... it must be over 2 lbs. and cooked to a medium doneness. a thin pink line through the center............... while the steak is cooking open 4 raw medium sized oysters, dip the oysters in flower and sauté them in butter till lightly brown. Now place the oysters on top of the steak.............. and drizzle the oysters and steak with a 1/2 cube of melted butter .................... now stand by for the real surf & turf ...................

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!!

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.

RE: Steak....and what else? 2004/11/09 00:20:50
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.

I prefer to grill my steaks on the Weber charcoal grill along with veggies. I like eggplant, onions, asparagus, broccoli, carrots, mushrooms, in the vegetable grill basket, paint on a little olive oil and pepper and they are awesome.

I like my baked potatoes with sour cream, butter and chives. I like the ones that are baked without foil. Most of the time, I order those. If a sweet potato is offered, I sometimes choose those with brown sugar and butter. I also like to get a side of sauted peppers and onions or mushrooms. Hot rolls and a good cold crisp salad !!!

Ribeye or Porterhouse on the rare side of medium-rare. At home, my own home fried potatoes. In a restaurant, hash browns or a "real" baked potato with real butter. Some nice crusty rolls and a relish tray with green olives and celery to start.

Ribeye, medium, served on a thick slice of toasted buttered french bread, and covered in sauted onions that were seasoned with salt,pepper and a dash of worstershire.That's enough food for me for one sittin! As much as I love a good baked potato, there's just no room.

Hey Jeepguy,

Where in Corning did you go? I get up there on a fairly regular basis and don't see a great choice of restaurants.

That said, our FAVORITE restaurant in Corning, NY is SORGES. We have dined there 3 consecutive years for our anniversary. It's a great family run Italian place. Here is the link if you are interested. www.sorges.com

Spaghetti is my choice for the side there. Sadly, very few places locally offer that as an option.

It really depends on my mood and what
the restaurant seems to do best.
The last rib eye I had was accompanied by
fries since they were fresh and double cooked.
Usually it's a baked potato with sour cream, chives
and butter. And the potato skin lathered in butter
is like dessert for me.
Last weekend one of our eating companions ordered
a T-bone which came with shrimp scampi swimming in
butter and garlic on top of the steak. Certainly
not the dish for a purist but I had a few tastes and
it was damn good.

Since I no longer have the kind of appetite like Mr Hoffman's Grandson, I have switched from huge Porterhouse slabs to NY Strips.
To accompany that I prefer Stouffer's Noodles Romanoff, my garlic toast, and asparagus tips. Iced tea, Coke or rootbeer also.

It's been a very long time since I had an appetite like my grandson's, so I'm a strip steak guy, too. But, I have to tell you this is the first time I've heard of Stouffer's Noddles Romanoff. I used to love the Betty Crocker version, but that hasn't been available since the 1970s -- at least here in my area of Ohio.

pacman, just read your post. It was Moretti's in Elmira. Huge filet, ancient building, a favorite of drivers from Watkins Glen, and they serve spaghetti on the side. Cool place! Good food, very Roadfoodish.It is on Hatch St from what i remember.

I like a ribeye on the grill with lots of A1 (on the side)
and sauteed onions. Also, fresh sliced Beefsteak tomatoes on the side and a nice ear of sweet corn. Alternately, to replace the Beefsteak tomatoes, a chilled German Cucumber salad with tomatoes, onion, oil, and dill.

Depending if it's a normal hour dinner.. I'll take cream of spinach and a fried potato (hash, etc). If fried potato is not available.. An au gratin.

If it's a late dinner, then just the steak (porterhouse, strip or ribeye) and the spinach.

Becuse of many requests, I am reposting this recipe even though it can be found on another forum:

Special Dipping Sauce
1/3 cup Heinz Ketchup
1/3 cup Del Monte Ketchup
1/3 cup Steak Sauce (any brand except A-1)
Few dashes Lea & Perrins Worcstershire Sauce
pan drippings from steak

Mix well and serve at room temperature. DO NOT pour on cooked steak, but rather put into a bowl and dip cut steak according to personal taste.

Dearfolk,
My favorite steak accompaniment of all time (although I had mine with chicken livers, if I recollect) was Rip's Rings at the late, lamented Pilgreen's Steak House on Lee Street in S/W Atlanta.
As soon as I hit the road again, I'm going back to Jim Stalvey's in Covington, Georgia to try their onion rings and to see what else they offer as options to go with their very fine steaks (even though I may well opt for something other than steak).
