Residents in Lake Oswego apartments aren't known for being sticklers for tradition, so no one will fault you if you decide to serve up some juicy steaks for Thanksgiving instead of the good ol' turkey standby. But what goes with steak for Thanksgiving? Here are six ideas for creative sides to go with a Thanksgiving steak for your Lake Oswego, Oregon Thanksgiving!
6 Sides for Thanksgiving Steak
- Crispy Sweet Potato Fries: Toss the sweet potato fries in potato starch or cornstarch first and then coat them with oil. Then bake them like you normally would for a crispy side to go with that T-bone.
- Mushrooms on Toast: Give your Thanksgiving steak a British twist with a side of sautéed mushrooms on toast. Cook the mushrooms slowly with some onion slices thrown in and a dash of parsley towards the end. Serve the mushrooms with a fork on a slice of toast.
- Arugula, Pears and Blue Cheese Salad: This is a salad with really bold flavors to go with a nice steak and a glass of red wine. Top the arugula off with sliced pears and crumbly blue cheese, and then drizzle a warm vinaigrette over the top for a dressing.
- Kale and Potato Gratin: This is a recipe that calls for just a dash of milk for the gratin and a small sampling of cheese. The kale adds a dash of sweetness for a great Thanksgiving side dish.
- Balsamic-Glazed Pearl Onions: You might not think onions could make a great side dish, but with Thanksgiving steak you get to break the rules, right? Boil the pearl onions first and then sautée them in summer butter for a minute. Then bring them to a boil in some chicken stock and balsamic vinegar.
- Braised Radishes, Shallots and Bacon: Who doesn't like a little bacon with their steak? Cook the bacon until it's crispy first, and then toss in some sliced radishes. Once the radishes start to brown, add the shallots for a delicious Thanksgiving side.
