If you’re wondering what to serve with your London broil, you’ve come to the right place. In this article, I list 48 of the most popular side dishes for London broil.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best side dishes for London broil include truffle mash, Hasselback squash, an Asian salad, garlic butter rolls, or roasted broccoli. Other veggie options are grilled carrots or corn, or an apple and walnut salad. For an impressive side, go for a lemon risotto.
London broil isn’t the fanciest cut of steak, but who’s to say you can’t give it the full premium steakhouse treatment with these side dishes?
Go for a creamy mash, especially if you want to make a cut as lean as London broil more decadent. Or why not go with a plate of onion rings for a crispy contrast?
Truffle mashed potatoes
Mashed potatoes and London broil – you can’t get any more classic than this duo.
But this recipe isn’t your typical mashed potatoes. They get an extra flavor boost with the addition of sour cream and truffle oil.
Top these mashed potatoes with slices of your London broil and let the spuds soak up the juices to make every bite extra tasty.
Pro-tip: Remember to go easy on the truffle oil. It’s potent and can easily overpower your mash.
Garlic butter rolls
These garlic butter rolls are a step above your usual bread rolls. They’re soft and fluffy, ideal for soaking up the London broil’s juices and sauce.
The secret with these rolls? They’re smothered with butter several times, making them extra buttery.
Whether you’re serving them alongside your London broil or as an appetizer, one thing’s for sure — it’ll be difficult to stop eating these rolls.
Sweet potato wedges
Try these sweet potato wedges if you want to steer away from traditional fries.
They have a distinct sweetness that tastes amazing when paired with the savory flavors of London broil. Plus, they’re baked and broiled so you get ultra-crispy edges without using too much oil.
Pssst… don’t forget to make a tasty dip for your wedges – I like blue cheese dip.
London broil is a pretty lean cut of meat, so pairing it with a hearty, starchy side is guaranteed to make it more satisfying.
You can never go wrong with a plate of creamy pasta for a bit of indulgence, but a simple rice pilaf also works wonders. Although if you’re looking for something fancy, go all out with a luxurious risotto.
Tomato basil orzo
Look no further than this tomato basil orzo recipe if you want a healthy, filling side dish. It features a zesty homemade vinaigrette and tomatoes that have been seasoned with honey and chili powder, then roasted with prosciutto.
The results? Deliciously sweet-savory pasta dish with a mildly spicy kick that’ll wake up your taste buds.
Serve this vibrant side dish with your grilled London broil for the ultimate midweek summer treat.
Teriyaki rice pilaf
Rice pilaf is a hearty, all-in-one side dish that you can make in advance if you’re looking to save time. The teriyaki sauce gives it some flair, while adding some peas gives the rice some color.
Don’t have any teriyaki sauce? Soy sauce will work in a pinch, but you’ll be losing out on quite a bit of flavor. So I highly recommend getting a bottle of it.
Pro-tip: make sure to use leftover rice to make this rice pilaf for best results.
Lemon parmesan risotto
Cooking for date night? You can’t go wrong with serving fork-tender London broil over a bed of risotto.
It’s a classy yet filling meal that will definitely impress your significant other.
You might’ve heard of risotto being challenging to cook, but don’t be intimidated. It’s easier than you think. You just need to be patient, because you’ll need to keep stirring until the rice cooks.
Looking to keep your London Broil low-carb? Ditch the starchy sides and stick with vegetables.
You can try steamed green beans or broccoli if you want to keep it quick and simple. But if you’ve got more time, why not try a veggie casserole for a more filling side dish?
Roasted mushrooms in brown butter sauce
This is the ultimate side dish for mushroom lovers.
It features juicy, caramelized button mushrooms tossed in a nutty brown butter garlic sauce. It’s nutty and savory, with a prominent umami kick that’ll elevate your humble London Broil to the next level.
Whether you’re cooking dinner for yourself or for a crowd, you’re guaranteed no leftovers with these delicious roasted mushrooms.
Roasted broccoli and green beans
When you want something nutritious to go with your London broil, broccoli and green beans are no-brainers. Roasting them makes them a wonderful accompaniment because they’re perfectly caramelized.
Want to make this even better? Sprinkle a handful of parmesan cheese and squeeze half a lemon over the veggies before roasting them. The lemon infuses the veg with a bright flavor, while the parmesan cheese bring a nutty twist and extra texture.
Even if you hate asparagus, this dish will leave you drooling.
This casserole is a bundle of asparagus spears smothered in a cream cheese mixture, and topped with even more cheese. It’s a one-pot dish, so after putting it in your oven, you can relax or focus on cooking your London broil perfectly.
And the best part? It’s keto-friendly, low-carb, and indulgent all in one.
Roasted butternut squash
Nothing screams fall more than a hearty tray of roasted butternut squash.
It’s a relatively easy dish to cook, with peeling and dicing the squash being the most challenging part. But once you have the technique down, you’ll be able to cut one up effortlessly.
Cooking Classy seasons the diced squash with classic herbs like rosemary, thyme, and sage, which also pair well with your London broil.
Pro-tip: make sure to always use fresh squash for roasting.
Garlic parmesan brussels sprouts
Take your plain brussels sprouts to the next level with this holiday side dish.
The sprouts get unbelievably crisp in the air fryer and they take less than 20 minutes to cook. Toss them with some bacon bits once they’re cooked if you want something a bit more decadent.
Serve these jazzed-up sprouts with your London broil as a healthy alternative to French fries.
Salads and London broil go together like apple and pie. They provide an excellent contrast to the beefiness of your steak.
A bowl of leafy greens and your favorite vinaigrette will do the trick if you’re in a rush. But if you’re feeling a little fancy, you can add fruits for an added sweet twist. You can also try whipping up a slaw to switch things up.
Apple walnut salad

London broil might taste amazing, but it’s not the most attractive color so why not brighten up your plate with this light and refreshing Asian-inspired salad?
Dinner At The Zoo uses cabbage, carrots, and bell peppers but you can really use any veg you like. The only requirement is that they have to be colorful.
Some of my favorite additions are edamame, radish, and purple cabbage.
If you’re grilling your London Broil, take advantage of some extra space and whip up these grilled side dishes.
Corn on the cob is always a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, but you can also try grilled shrimp skewers for a fun surf-and-turf meal. You can also throw some pineapple rings on the grill to give your steak a delicious tropical twist.
Corn on the cob
Corn on the cob is a no-brainer side dish when you’ve already got a grill out.
The smokiness really pairs well with the natural sweetness of the corn, making each bite oh-so-tasty. And don’t forget about the fixins!
You can keep it simple and use butter for flavor. Or you can follow Aberdeen’s lead and add a fun Mexican flair by making some chili-lime honey butter.
Top tip: drizzle any leftover butter over your London broil (yum!).
Not a fan of corn on the cob? Another veggie you might not have thought of grilling is carrots.
I don’t know about you, but I always seem to have some carrots in my cupboard so this is a great way to use them up.
And the balsamic glaze amps the smoky flavor up, making them a worthy side to your London broil.
Grilled shrimp kebobs
Bring a fun surf-and-turf twist to your grilled London Broil with a side of these shrimp kebobs.
Table For Two Blog uses a medley of zucchini, bell peppers, and onions with the shrimp to add an extra pop of sweetness and color. But you can easily swap them out with your choice of quick-cooking veg like eggplant or even pineapples for a sweeter twist.
Pssst… remember to soak the wood skewers while the shrimp marinate. This prevents them from burning on the grill.
