If you’re wondering what to serve with your steak Diane, you’ve come to the right place.
In this article, I list 11 of the most popular side dishes for steak Diane.
In a rush? Here’s the short answer.
The best side dishes to serve with steak Diane are creamed spinach, mushroom risotto, and asparagus. You can also serve a side of iceberg wedge salad, radish and watercress salad, or shredded brussel sprouts. For potato side options, there are mashed potatoes, Duchess potatoes, or sweet potato gratin.
Ready? let’s jump right in.
Crockpot mashed potatoes
What could be a more classic side for steak than fluffy and smooth mashed potatoes (except for maybe fries)?
Buttery and with the right amount of garlic, these crockpot mashed potatoes are delicious yet super simple.
All you need to do is dump everything in a slow cooker and then mash away.
Which means you can give the steak your full attention.
Shredded sauteed brussel sprouts
Steak, a carb, and some fresh veggies – it’s traditional, but for a reason!
Sprouts get a bad rep, but most people are just cooking them wrong.
Try this shredded sauteed version.
The brussel sprouts are cooked with some fresh lemon juice and parmesan cheese, which brightens up the dish and gives it a fresher feel.

If you haven’t tried creamed spinach yet, it’s time to fix that.
It takes your average spinach side and elevates it to new heights.
Creamy and decadent, this dish is bold enough to stand out next to the steak but it won’t overpower it.

And don’t skip the nutmeg, it’s the most important ingredient.
Radish and watercress salad
This salad is my summer go-to because it’s so elegant yet loaded with fresh flavors.
It’s an ideal salad to pair with rich dishes like steak Diane because it’s so light.
It has some crunch from the radish, pepperiness from the watercress, and a tangy French dressing.
This 15-minute salad is not one to be ignored.
Butternut squash and sweet potatoes gratin
Jazz up your steak night with this twist on a holiday classic.
A butternut squash and sweet potatoes gratin is warm, comforting, and indulgent.
The sweet taste of the vegetables will complement the savory flavors of the meat perfectly.
And you can flavor this side however you want, you can go a garlicky route, a herby route, or even a spicy route.
Give this recipe a shot.
Sous vide asparagus
There’s nothing I love more than a healthy veggie side next to my steak.
It balances out the meal when you have some fresh greens on your plate.
And here’s a fun way to cook asparagus. Sous vide them.
It only takes 12 minutes, and the result is tender spears that will still snap when you bite into them.
You no longer have to worry about soggy asparagus (and don’t worry, you don’t need a sous vide machine).
Planning a fancy steak night at home?
Make duchess potatoes instead of your regular fries to go with your juicy steak.
These airy clouds of baked potato puree are flavored with cheese and garlic. They have an irresistibly crispy outside, and a soft fluffy inside. YUM!
Psst… if you don’t have a piper, you can just shape the potato mixture into small mounds.
Honey balsamic carrots
These carrots are coated with garlic butter and some sweet honey sauce with a hint of balsamic vinegar.
The glaze highlights the natural sweetness of the vegetable but also has some acidity to it, which helps cut through the richness of the steak diane.

Iceberg wedge salad
Cool and crispy, iceberg wedge salad is a steakhouse favorite.
It has a homemade buttermilk and blue cheese dressing that’s a creamy delight – and pairs really well with the pan sauce on the steak.
This iceberg wedge salad also looks great on the plate. I like mine with fewer tomatoes, but extra bacon and extra croutons, please!
Turn your steak into a restaurant-quality meal with a serving of mushroom risotto on the side.
You’ll often find mushrooms in the steak Diane sauce, so it makes sense to have them in the risotto.
The earthy flavor brings some umami to the dish and adds some depth of flavor.
Make this tasty mushroom risotto in less than one hour.
Apple crisp cheesecake
End your irresistible meal of tender steak with some sweet dessert.
And I don’t mean just any old cake.
Try this apple crisp cheesecake.
It is a creamy vanilla cheesecake with a crunchy apple cinnamon crumble on top and a thick graham crust bottom.
Plus a drizzle of caramel sauce to bring the whole thing together.
Making this apple crisp cheesecake will take a bit of time and effort, but it’ll be so worth it.
