Usually I go with a baked potato and basic pinto beans (garlic, salt, pepper, cumin and onion). Other favorites are squash and zuchini, brussels sprouts or hobo potatoes.

When there is a nice steak, I usually go all Atkins on it. If my wife is around, I'll get stuck eating some salad, too. At a restaurant, the steak should be lovingly nested in a plate of nice fries, which will soak up the juices and be even tastier.

No need to spoil a great steak with vegetables!

Grilled veg like red onions, asparagus, zucchini are all solid options. Just toss em in olive oil, salt and pepper and maybe squeeze on a lil fresh lemon when finished.

+1 to what Theory said, and maybe some roasted potatoes with fresh thyme, garlic, and parmesian cheese.

I gotta go with the grilled asparagus and the roasted new potatoes. Damn, now I gotta go make something for dinner:D

Going simple? Roasted baby yukons. A little more involved? Potato gratin.

I am a huge fan of pickled mushrooms for 1 side and creamy mashed potatoes for another.

My fav is spaghetti tossed in a frying pan with olive oil and a bunch of garlic and green onions, fried till the edges of the noodle start to crisp a bit.

Love grilled asparagus. Mushrooms are also great, but I like mine the Spanish way with garlic and sherry. And I like throwing a few oiled spring onions on the grill for a few minutes. If you have an hour around the kitchen - caramelized onions are also wonderful.... Potato gratin is one of my favorite things in the world, but I could live with pretty much any other kind of potato preparation also.

This is actually quite amusing, since I bought a Ribeye the other day that I'm preparing to cook tomorrow. Unfortunately, my grill is in storage, so I will be pan roasting and serving over rice with carmelized red onions, sauteed green bell pepper, and sauteed heirloom tomato. All drizzled with lemon, garlic, and a very nice virgin olive oil.

(1) A bottle of good red wine followed by (2) a nice glass of bourbon.

As a side note- green onions have a ton of flavor in the roots. Grilled green onions should not have the roots trimmed off!

I'm all for the wine with the meal...... then hang out with Arturo Fuente and Remy Martin afterwards.

Grilled corn NY Mexican style with mayo, grated queso blanco & cayenne. That, and beer.

How about something fancier like homemade gnocchi with a stilton cheese cream sauce?

Another favorite of mine is creamed corn made from grilled corn, roasted red peppers and heavy cream, I often add roasted baby potatoes to it for a complete side dish.

For a fancier vegetable, I like braised broccoli rabe.

My favorite is a spin on mashed potatoes and gravy.

1 part yam, 1 part potato... mash it all with salt, butter, heavy cream, and a little sugar.

In a pan, saute sliced mushrooms in a little olive oil... when the mushrooms are done (cook off any liquid, but if there is too much, drain it and reserve. Add heavy cream, and stir in soy sauce, and about a tsp of dried parsley (don't try to sub fresh parsley, it's too strong of a flavor). Reduce until it gets thick the way gravy should be. If there isn't enough mushroom flavor in the gravy, add some of the reserved mushroom liquid into the sauce, otherwise, you can add the mushroom reserve to something you make later on, like miso soup, or ramen, or something.

Skinny asparagus tossed in a pan with olive oil, butter and shallots and garnished with shaved parmesan. That is a recipe that I stole from a place in London and it is EVIL, i tell you!!!!!

I like asparagus and mushrooms. Grilled tomatoes would be nice to add a touch of acidity. Parsnip and mash for the starch. Personally, I do not like my steak with gravy, if any sauce goes on it, it'll be a bearnise. And a nice glass of pinot or shiraz.

Agreed.

The gravy was for the mashed potatoes... not for the steak.
