If you’re wondering what to serve with your chimichurri steak you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, I list 45 of the most popular side dishes for chimichurri steak.

In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

The best side dishes to serve chimichurri steak are lemon herb couscous, herbed flatbread, and potato hash with egg. You can also serve classic sides like french fries, roasted vegetables, or garlic butter rice. For more green options, you can serve a grilled peach salad or a butter lettuce salad.

Ready? Let’s jump right in.


Salads are great as a starter or side dish for your chimichurri steak.

A quick arugula salad sounds heavenly with the zesty steak, but you can also introduce a fruity twist with a grilled peach salad.

Blackberry goat cheese salad

Blackberry goat cheese salad is the perfect balance of sweet and salty flavors with a lovely bit of crunch.

It’s a tasty late summer salad that you can flaunt at any dinner party.

And with a chimichurri steak served next to it, it’ll feel like you’re eating at a Michelin star restaurant!

It only takes 15 minutes to make too.

There’s nothing like having a grilled peach salad on a hot summer’s day.

And you know what else goes with peaches?

That’s right – chimichurri steak!

The tangy chimichurri sauce and the savory steak are crying out for a touch of sweetness, and that’s exactly what the peaches bring.

This grilled peach salad looks and tastes uh-mazing.

Pico de gallo

End your work week right with a perfectly cooked chimichurri steak and a serving of this fresh pico de gallo.

The herbaceous chimichurri sauce needs something just as vibrant to stand up to its flavors. 

And this zesty tomato salsa fits the bill. 

Add more tomatoes for a sweeter salsa or another jalapeno pepper for a more fiery one.

Steak and starchy side dishes go together like peanut butter and jelly. 

You can never go wrong with a bed of creamy mashed potatoes, but there are loads of options to choose from if you want to think out of the box. 

Fondant potatoes are a deliciously elegant option, and I love homemade French fries too!

French fries

French fries are a pretty common side to serve with steak and it’s easy to see why.

Once you start mopping up the steak juices with your fries it’s hard to stop!

And this recipe gives you loads of flavor variations to pick from, my favorite being the Mexican seasoning.

I also wouldn’t say no to some garlic butter fries.

Herbed flatbread with whipped feta

Tired of munching on the same old boring carbs with your steak?

Why not make herbed flatbread with whipped feta instead?

It adds a nice fancy element to your steak and the whipped feta tastes amazing with the chimichurri sauce. 

You can slice the steak up and serve it on top like an open-face sandwich.

Lemon dill potato salad

I’ve never met anyone who can resist a good potato salad.

Your typical mayo-based potato salads would probably be too much for chimichurri steak.

But this potato salad is light, lemony, and refreshing. Your chimichurri sauce will still be the main flavor on the plate. 

Warning: once you try this lemon dill potato salad, you might never go back.

Garlic butter rice

You can never go wrong with a rice and chimichurri steak combo for dinner.

And fluffy rice, seasoned perfectly with garlic and butter, is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser 

It’s affordable, filling, and has plenty of room for customizations – I like to make mine extra garlicky!

The velvety egg yolks will mix with your herby sauce and coat the steak in yumminess.

Lemon herb couscous

Couscous often gets forgotten and honestly, I don’t know why.

It’s easier to make than pasta and rice. Plus it’s so versatile. 

You can make it into a salad or serve it with a hearty stew.

But in our case, we’re using it to make a lovely bed for our steak. The chopped herbs go perfectly with the chimichurri.

Keep your chimichurri steak light and low-carb with a nourishing veggie side! 

Take inspiration from the classic steakhouse menu with creamed spinach or go down the simple route with buttered vegetables.

Creamed spinach

Creamed spinach is a classic steakhouse side dish.

The mild, buttery, cheesy spinach melds together with the tender steak perfectly. 

And this dish is incredibly easy to prepare – it only takes 20 minutes from prep time to cook time.

Roasted vegetables

Roasted vegetables are vibrant, tasty, and healthy.

You don’t need to overthink it. 

All you need is a blend of your favorite vegetables, then some seasoning (garlic and herb in this case).

Roast the vegetables until they’re tender, but not soft, then serve. And if you have any spare chimichurri sauce, drizzle it over the veggies for a quick flavor boost.

Brussels sprouts with balsamic glaze

Not a fan of Brussels sprouts?

Maybe you just haven’t cooked them the right way.

Roasting them mellows out their bitter flavor and the balsamic glaze adds a layer of complexity that works wonderfully with the savory steak.

Take Julia Album’s lead for the best Brussel sprouts you’ll ever make.

Mashed cauliflower

Want to give your chimichurri steak a new twist?

Serve it alongside a dollop of creamy mashed cauliflower and let the mash soak up all the lovely juices from the steak. 

Cauliflower is a great low-carb alternative to mashed potatoes, and it has a lighter feel to it so you don’t need to worry about feeling stuffed afterwards.
