White truffle cacio e pepe

This recipe takes your simple, but already delicious. cacio e pepe up a notch with a drizzle of white truffle oil.

Green beans in creamy parmesan sauce

This recipe transforms your plain old green beans into a highly addicting side.

The green beans are coated with bacon drippings (YUM) before being steamed in chicken broth until they’re just crisp-tender.

And there’s more…

The beans are then mixed into a creamy parmesan sauce, which is ideal for dipping some steak bites in.

Why we love this recipe: it’s reminiscent of spaghetti alfredo, sans the carb-loaded pasta.

Baked mushroom rice

Pasta is never served plain, so I don’t get why we always serve rice plain!

Ditch the boring white rice and go for this baked mushroom rice instead.

As the mushrooms bake, they release their juices into the rice and each grain becomes infused with a delicious umami flavor.

Why we love this recipe: it requires zero hands-on cooking.

Italian salsa verde

Give your steak bites a boost by serving them with this classic Italian sauce.

This version of salsa verde boasts a vibrant, herby flavor with a salty, tangy note from capers and some heat from chili.

The key to getting the perfect salsa verde is to use the freshest ingredients you can find – it makes a huge difference. 

Why we love this recipe: you can drizzle it over pretty much anything.

Crab imperial

Serve your steak bites with crab imperial for a unapologetically indulgent surf-and-turf meal.

This dish involves mildly sweet crab meat smothered with a sweet and tangy Old Bay-flavored mayo mixture – a match made in heaven. 

Pro-tip: the recipe calls for jumbo lump crab meat, but if you want the sweetest crab, use blue crabs. 

Why we love this recipe: it’s a low-carb, keto-friendly, restaurant-quality dish.

Cheesy scalloped potatoes with caramelized onions

Steak and cheesy potatoes are a classic pairing – and they go just as well with steak bites!

The potatoes will take two hours to make, but trust me – it’s worth the wait.

And don’t skip the caramelized onions, they bring a sweetness to the dish that works so well with meaty steak bites.

Psst… you might need a nap after eating this.

The zoodles will take on a soft, tender texture similar to perfectly al dente pasta (as long as you don’t overcook them).

And with a simple sauce of garlic and parmesan, all the focus will stay on your steak bites.

Why we love this recipe: it’s super healthy.

No-knead artisan bread

After cooking your steak bites, the pan will be filled with flavorful pan juices.

Don’t let these go to waste – drizzle the juices over your steak bites and then use some crusty bread to clean the plate once you’re done.

And the best part? You only need four ingredients to make this bread.

Baby bok choy with warm garlic dressing

In a rush? This dish is a warm, healthy side you can whip up in a flash.

Boy choy will work best with Asian-style steak bites, but if you want to stick to more traditional flavors, swap the bok choy for another green veggie like broccoli or spinach.

Tabbouleh salad

Take inspiration from Middle Eastern cuisine and whip up this hearty tabbouleh salad to pair with your steak bites. 

Instead of leafy greens, this dish is packed to the brim with bulgur, cereal, parsley, mint, tomatoes, and onions.

It’s a medley of flavors, all tied together with olive oil and lime juice for a refreshing bite.

Vegetable kabobs

Want something fun to go alongside your steak bites?

Serve them with these grilled veggie kabobs. You can set up a ‘make your own’ station where your guests can pick what they want on their skewers.

I’d go for zucchini, red onion, mushroom, and halloumi.

Why we love this recipe: you can even put the steak bites on the kabob.

What sauce goes well with steak bites?

I think the best sauce for steak bites is a simple garlic butter. But I also recommend a salsa verde for a chimichurri sauce for a more zesty combination. For an Asian twist, go for teriyaki sauce. Or for something traditional, go for a red wine reduction or a peppercorn sauce.
