4 of the Best Steak Toppings to Experiment with at Home

Throughout the pandemic, many people have begun to experiment with cooking their favorite dishes at home. A perfect steak is an All-American favorite that can be prepared in a myriad of ways.

Some people may want to have their steak have a little extra flavor. Before reaching for that sacrilegious steak sauce, remember that there are many topping options available that can get your steak tasting like perfection.

For your next winter slab of beef, try one of these Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse recommended special toppings.

Butter, Butter, Butter!

Regular butter can add flavor to any dish, but when it comes to putting butter on top of your beef, you’ll want a little more than just store bought spreads.

Compound butter is a butter that is mixed with flavors that bring a kick to the foods it is spread across. Compound butter goes great with steak, especially when it comes with these supplementing flavors:

  • Garlic
  • Avocado
  • Red Wine

You can find many different ways to create compound butter, making this topping one of the most diverse ingredients you could add to your next steak dinner.

Crab Oscar Steak Topping

While our menu typically focuses on steak and wild game, as steak connoisseurs, we understand the tasty value of a traditional surf and turf dinner. 

If you want a tasty way to mimic this tradition, try out a Crab Oscar steak topping. Crab meat, lemon juice, hot sauce, and sour cream create a perfectly flavorful topping that goes well with any type of red meat.


Mushrooms are thick, juicy, veggies that taste their best when served piping hot. In fact, we’d go so far as to say that they are the steaks of the vegetable world. So, it’s no surprise that a combination of the two foods makes a perfect pair.

Our suggestion is to pan sear your mushrooms in a rich red wine and sea salt for added taste. Once the flavors have all combined to create a tempting aroma, you’ll know it’s time to dress your steak with this delicious topping.

Southwestern Salsa Steak Dressing

Texas is a state that is known for its steaks and salsa! If you really want to get creative, make your own batch of Pico de Gallo and place it atop your steak! Depending on your spice preference, this can really add some heat to an already piping hot dish!
