Ordering a steak is only half of the battle when creating the perfect dish at a steakhouse. Sides are also an integral part of the meal. With spring around the corner, find out some of our favorite side dish ideas that will put you in the mood for the season.
1. A Fresh Salad
Spring brings about the thoughts of vibrant colors. When one looks at vibrantly colored foods, a natural thought is that this food is going to taste as good as it looks. There is no better way to represent spring, color, and good taste, than with a fresh spring salad.
At a Dallas steakhouse you want to eat light, but deliciously, when you are considering pre-main course foods. A colorful, crisp salad, will not only begin to whet your appetite, but will also add a little bit of spring to your steak meal.
2. Pimento Cheese Fritters
Spring means that the sun is coming back to Dallas, Texas, so why not celebrate the natural golden color of the sun with one of our golden Pimento Cheese Fritters?
Made with shredded Cheddar, flour, buttermilk, bread crumbs, and an assortment of chili powders for an extra kick, there is no way that there won’t be a spring in your step after trying this snack. The best part about this dish is that although it may seem like a complex treat, it really only consists of a few steps, patience, and the love of good food.
3. Creamy Chive Potatoes
Much like our Cheese Fritters, another spring favorite is a dish that involves potatoes. This recipe features Yukon Gold potatoes, kosher salt, unsalted butter, and the ingredient that makes the name; chives.
This dish is a great take on what could be considered chunky mashed potatoes. The standard recipe serves 4 and takes a total of 45 minutes to both prepare and cook. If potatoes aren’t your vegetable, or you simply don’t want to have to prepare a dish, come join us at our table for a serving of our chef special, Bourbon Cream Corn.
4. Garlic Roasted Broccoli
Broccoli is a side dish favorite that goes well with almost any protein. One way to liven up what can be a plain dish of vegetables is to cook your greens with the potent taste of roasted garlic. When cooking this dish at home, you run the risk of overpowering your broccoli with the tasty garlic. However, a visit to a steakhouse in Dallas will give you the best taste in this dish that you could ask for.
5. Potato, Squash & Goat Cheese Gratin
This simple dish brings a rustic flavor to your steak meal. The yellow squash mixed with the red potato and cheese makes this a gooey treat that will accompany your meal with color and taste.
