Twice-Baked Potatoes

Picking the best sides for steak can sometimes get fancy. After all, it is a special occasion. 

This recipe is an unorthodox way of having mashed potatoes, and we think it’s adorable.

Not only are the twice-baked potatoes one of the tastiest sides for beef, but they are a visually appealing treat that will do wonders for your composition.

Learn how to make this steak side dish by following the ingredients list and our instructions below.


  • Six large potatoes
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 sour cream
  • One stick butter
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Two scallions
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper


Making the best sides for steak may not always be the simplest task. So, to allow the beginner chefs to make these dishes, we’ve separated the instructions into straightforward steps anyone can perform.

So, check them out and start making good steak sides.

Step 1

We’ll start by preheating the oven to 400 Degrees F. During that time, wash and dry the potatoes thoroughly.

Step 2

Next, you’ll have to poke holes in the potatoes with a fork, rub them with olive oil, and sprinkle them with salt. Place the potatoes directly on the oven racks. Leave in the oven for about an hour or until you can easily pierce the potatoes with a fork.

Once you can do that, place the potatoes on a baking sheet and let them cool off until you can work with them with no difficulties.

Step 3

Cut off the top of every tomato. Only a thin layer will be enough. Scoop inside each potato, leaving the edges thick enough not to break. 

Place the insides in a bowl and keep the tops as a snack.

Step 4

Add milk, butter, and sour cream into the bowl with potato insides. Mash the mix until butter is melted and potatoes are smooth with some chunks. 

Add the scallions and 1 cup of cheddar and mix everything once again. Season the mixture with salt and pepper.

Step 5

Fill the potatoes with the insides mixture and place them on a large baking sheet. Top each potato with some of the remaining cheese and bake until it’s melted.

This usually takes about 15 minutes, and it’s the last step before garnishing and serving this steak side dish.

Sprinkle more scallions on top and serve with a high-quality piece of steak.

Garlic Butter Mushrooms

If you’re already overwhelmed with preparing steak and want your sides for beef to be quick and delicious, this recipe is worth giving a look at.

These garlic butter mushrooms need about 20 minutes to be ready for the table. So if you don’t have much time, this is one of the good steak sides to choose.


  • 1 1/2 lbs crimini mushrooms
  • Two cloves of garlic
  • 4 tbsp melted butter
  • 2 tsp freshly chopped thyme
  • 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper


Step 1

We’ll start by preheating the oven to 375 degrees F. 

During that time, prepare a medium-sized bowl. Add butter, vinegar, garlic, and thyme, and whisk everything together.

Step 2

After the mushrooms have been cleaned, spread them over a large baking sheet.

Pour the mixture from step 1 over them and season everything with salt and pepper. Toss the mushrooms to ensure they are properly coated, then spread over a baking sheet again.

Step 3

Place the mushrooms into the oven and roast for the next 15-18 minutes.

Once the mushrooms are golden and tender, take them out of the oven and serve them with a steak dinner.

Loaded Cauliflower Bake

Does it seem like the hosts serve rice and potatoes as the sides at every dinner you visit? Well, we’re here to put a stop to that.

We are also sick of the same sides and no experimentation in the kitchen. So, we’ve added this loaded cauliflower recipe to the list.

Check out how this healthier version of creamy mac and cheese can elevate your next dinner date.


  • Two cauliflower heads (cut into florets)
  • Three cloves of garlic
  • 1 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
  • Six slices of bacon
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup green onions
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper


Step 1

Once again, we’ll start by preheating the oven. Set it to 350 degrees F and proceed with other tasks while waiting for the oven to reach the needed temperature.

Get a large pot of salted boiling water and use it to blanch the cauliflower for 3 minutes. Then, squeeze and drain the cauliflower of water.

Step 2

Step two is all about preparing the cheese sauce.

Melt the butter in a large skillet. To it, add garlic and cook until you can smell the fragrance. This usually takes about a minute.

Then, add the flour and stir the mix until it’s golden. Two minutes mostly do the trick. 

Next, add milk and bring it to a low simmer. Proceed by adding the cream cheese and whisking until everything combines. Then, remove the skillet from the heat.

Add 1 cup of cheddar to the mix and stir until it melts. Then, season the sauce with salt pepper.

Step 3

Get a 9″-x-13″ baking dish and add the drained cauliflower inside. 

Pour the cheese sauce over the cauliflower and stir until it all combines. Then, add the bacon and the green onions, but leave a tablespoon of each on the side. 

Stir everything in, then top with the leftovers.

Pour the remaining cheddar, bacon, and green onions on top to finish the pre-bake part.

Step 4

Bake for about 30 minutes. You’ll know the dish is ready when the cauliflower is tender, and the cheese is melted.
