Even though down at the Y.O. Ranch, we are all about grilling up a good steak, we understand that no meal would be complete without a hearty serving of greens and vegetables. Since fall is now in season, it’s time for our chefs to cook up some classic favorite side dishes made with delicious root vegetables!
Check out our main reasons why we think you should opt for root-themed sides this season!
What Are Root Vegetables, Anyway?
As the name implies, root vegetables are pulled from the ground during harvest. Some of the most popular veggies we use throughout our menu stem straight from the root. If you’ve eaten carrots, potatoes, sweet potatoes, or onions, not only did you have a tasty treat, but you ate a root vegetable that has several health benefits! Here are some quick facts about the root vegetables you might find in a Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse dish.
Maximize Your Vitamins While Minimizing Your Calories at a Dallas Steakhouse
These days, so many people are health-conscious, and root vegetables are the perfect way to keep calories low while still being able to enjoy a delicious side dish with your steak dinner.
One of the most popular steak sides is the potato. When eaten in moderation, this root vegetable can give your body its daily allowance of Vitamin A and more than double the potassium than a medium-sized banana can offer! Add up the health benefits with the way our chef prepares this All-American side, and you’ll have a smoked baked potato that easily matches the masterful preparation of our meats.
Onions Are Great for Diabetics
Onions are a staple ingredient in many of our dishes at Y.O. Ranch Steakhouse. Not only do these vegetables provide a kick to any order, but they also have a high amount of Vitamin C and disease-fighting antioxidants.
Onions are a go-to vegetable to help keep blood sugar in check for people with Diabetes. Even just a few ounces sprinkled into a salad or soup can produce significant blood sugar level reduction.
Reduce Your Risk of Certain Cancers
Cancer is something that everyone wants to avoid. Take the steps to the prevention of certain cancers by eating more root vegetables this fall! A diet rich in tasty vegetables like Turnips and Beets can actually help reduce the risk of:
- Stomach Cancer
- Lung Cancer
- Breast Cancer
- Colorectal Cancer
