Snow is melting, the grass is growing, and birds are chirping. The colder, stark months are finally past, and it’s safe to say that we are all breathing a collective sigh of relief that a new season is here. Spring has sprung.
Historically, spring has served as a beacon of growth and new life every year, and this year is no different. Spring’s slow swing into the warmth of summer is upon us, and it is impossible to ignore. We see it in the fresh color bursting to life in our trees, plants and flowers. We smell it in the warmer breeze flowing through our open windows and doors. We hear it in the air as birds chirp and flit about as they build their nests, and we feel it as we head outdoors to soak in the sun at every opportunity.
Just as nature reflects change in this season, we feel motivated to make changes at this time of year, as well. We clean out closets, cycle away our winter clothing, and sort items that no longer “spark joy” to donate or give away. We rearrange furniture, redecorate and begin remodeling projects. “Honey do” lists often triple in length, and we find ourselves diving into gardening and landscaping plans with gusto.
While you’ve been busy sorting out which projects you want to focus on this spring, we’ve been busy thinking about what makes up the best sides to serve with steak. As your go-to steak experts, we know exactly which grilled steak sides shout “spring.” As our warm weather welcome gift to you, we have put together a mouthwatering round-up of the best grilled steak sides guaranteed to put a little “spring” in your step.
Nothing says spring quite like cutting into a buttery tender grilled Filet Mignon, and this Grilled Filet with Avocado Buerre-Blanc made our list of the best sides to serve with steak for spring because it incorporates everyone’s favorite – the almighty avocado – in a fresh way. Serve your filet with our Lobster Loaded Potatoes or a simple salad with fresh berries for the perfect spring weekend treat.
Our favorite grilled steak sides for spring draw out bold citrus notes and incorporate fresh seasonal offerings, and in that respect this Pineapple Rum Caribbean Steak Marinade checks all the boxes. Use this tantalizing marinade as a glaze when grilling your favorite Ribeye or Kansas City Strip, or serve on the side as a perfect spring steak sauce.
To finish, or not to finish? Is that even a question? We love this Blue Cheese Chive Butter recipe because the flavor is on point, it involves just five ingredients and takes very little time to prepare. Blue cheese is a strong flavor that typically pairs best with other strong flavors, so finish your favorite steak with this customer favorite recipe and serve with a tangy carrot slaw.
The Easter bunny isn’t the only one with a hankering for carrots in the spring, and we know that once you try this recipe for sherried carrot steak sauce, you’ll agree! This recipe requires a little more preparation, but we promise your hard work will pay off in delicious dividends. There are a few giants in the world of steak sauce, and we won’t name names, but we’re unashamed to say that this is one of our new favorite sides to serve with steak.
There’s a reason avocados are a crowd favorite and an ingredient in two of our recipe round-up of the best sides for steak – they’re delicious! This Avocado Feta Basil Aioli recipe is the perfect accompaniment to any spring meal because it is so versatile. Serve over your favorite vegetable side, or spread it over a slice of warm bread.
