Ready? Let’s jump right in.
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.
The herbed flatbreads are pretty easy to make too.
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.
This lemon herb couscous is perfect for bumping up weekday meals.
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!
This blackberry goat cheese salad comes together in 15 minutes.
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 some over the veggies for a quick flavor boost.

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!
But these fries aren’t just any old fries, they have a bit of Mexican flare to pair with the chimichurri sauce.
I also wouldn’t say no to some garlic butter fries.
Grilled peach salad
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.
Potato hash with egg
Who says you can’t have breakfast for dinner?
The velvety egg yolks will mix with your herby sauce and coat the steak in yumminess.
And the bacon will add some smokey flavors to the dish.

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.
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.
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.

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 to the traditional mayo-based one.
