There are few entrees more satisfying than a great steak. But if you want to take your steak dinner to the next level, it’s important to have some delicious sides prepared as well.

Here are a few steak side ideas you might consider adding to your next steak dinner in Williamsport, PA.


There are all kinds of great veggie sides you can cook up either in the oven or on the grill to serve with your steak.

If you’re cooking steaks on the grill, it only makes sense to cook the sides at the same time, because the smoky flavors of the grill will soak into the vegetables to great effect. A few types of vegetables that really grill up well include asparagus, Brussels sprouts, eggplant, squash, zucchini, onions, bell peppers and cherry tomatoes, but you can find delicious methods of cooking up vegetables of all sorts.

If you’re cooking your steak inside, or if you don’t have enough room on the grill, you can cook your vegetables in the oven or on the stove. Eggplant fries are a great oven option, as they can bake up to be quite crispy. Roasting vegetables with a little olive oil, salt and pepper is a simple way to achieve great flavor and crispy texture. Roasted broccoli and cauliflower make for fantastic, simple sides to a steak.


Steak and potatoes are practically meant to be served together, and there are all kinds of ways you can prepare potatoes to make a great steak dinner. You can grill sweet potatoes for something simple and to give a little sweeter flavor. You can bake potatoes in your oven and serve them with chives, sour cream and shredded cheese. You can make cheesy potatoes with hash browns, cheese and bacon. And of course, there are all kinds of ways to make delicious mashed potatoes. We’re fans of using red potatoes, leaving the skins on and blending them with plenty of butter and a bit of garlic with some chives as a topping.

If you’re interested in more complicated potato recipes, there are plenty you can find, including delicious potato salads, Dijon-roasted potatoes and other types of potato casseroles.

Salads and slaws

A simple coleslaw can go a long way, but there are plenty of other options for salads and slaws you might consider, including chop salads, snap pea salads, apple bacon slaws, carrot slaws and dill cucumber salads. One of our favorites is to make a salad with arugula, pear and bleu cheese with a warm vinaigrette dressing. It’s light and makes a perfect complement to steak.

Pasta and grains

Quinoa and pasta salads are a delicious alternative to potato sides. They are usually a bit more complicated to put together, but the delicious flavor they provide is absolutely worth it, especially for an outdoor summer cookout.
