We don’t think there’s any question about what’s the best thing to come off a grill. It’s a steak of course. The only question is which cut.
But we imagine there is plenty of debate about the best side dish to accompany your signature steak. Rice, salad, potatoes, veggies, fruit, the list is endless.
It’s impossible to narrow it down to a single opinion, so instead we asked a few of our own employees for their favorite, go-to side dish recipes when they throw a KC Steak on the grill.
From simple to complex, healthy to not-as-much, we hope one of these recipes will find its way into your home this summer. Right next to a bone-in ribeye, a bacon-wrapped filet or your other favorite cut.
Avocado, Cucumber & Tomato Salad:
From Merry in Customer Service, “I love it because it only takes a few minutes to prepare, it’s fresh, bright and tastes like summer! It’s amazing when paired with a delicious steak.”
Place chopped tomatoes, avocados and cucumber in a good-sized salad bowl. Drizzle juice and olive oil over the vegetables and toss gently to mix. Season to taste and serve with our Prime KC Strip for a meal that will really impress.
Grilled Squash and Zucchini:
From Wayne in Operations, “This is one of my favorite sides to serve alongside one of our KC Steaks. It’s quick, simple and healthy.”
Balsamic, Honey Roasted Cabbage:
From Marcy in Marketing, “The best part is that it takes only a few minutes to prep and can bake in the oven while you are grilling your steaks. Plus, it provides less congestion on the grill and it’s a perfectly timed accompaniment to whatever you are taking off the grill (my choice will be a bone-in ribeye, of course).”
Ingredients (to serve 2):
Cheesy Hash Browns:
From Richard, our Product Manager, “This hearty side dish is the perfect pair for one of our prime steaks.”
