Steak Dinner Menu

With fall arriving soon, let these recipes inspire you to gather your loved ones of all ages for a late-Sunday-afternoon steak dinner menu. The cooking isn’t fancy, but it’s definitely tasty and guaranteed to please your meat-and-potatoes guys.

Paula likes to serve more than one cut of beef for a steak dinner, such as tenderloin fillets and strip steaks. Fillets are great for folks who prefer a smaller, leaner portion of meat, and strip steaks have a nice marbling of fat throughout, which makes the meat juicy and flavorful. Choose the cuts you prefer, and serve sauces separately so guests can mix and match them with their steaks.

No steak dinner is complete without a variety of sides. Paula takes inspiration from great steakhouses and prepares special versions of classic accompaniments such as baked potatoes, onion rings, a chopped or wedge salad, and a green vegetable. And of course, a rich, creamy dessert is the perfect ending to this special meal. Mix and match these dishes to create your ultimate steak dinner menu.
