What to serve with gammon steak
Gammon is a pork cut sourced from the hind legs of the pig. It then undergoes a curing process that imparts a delightful salty flavour. Recipe development manager, Mimi Morley, explains that it is for this reason that many people choose to pair sweet sides, like pineapple, to complement and balance the salty taste. Some classic gammon side dishes would be egg and chips, sweet potato mash and a honey mustard sauce.
What to serve with steak pie
Steak pie is a British classic, often served with a hearty portion of mashed potatoes to help soak up the delicious pie filling. Be sure to add a few spoonfuls of green peas or any of your favourite vegetables to help cut through the richness of the steak pie sauce.
What to serve with fillet steak
Fillet steak is a popular, hearty beef cut that classicly pairs with chunky chips, peppercorn sauce, and maybe even with a few onion rings on the side. For something more luxurious, add rosemary fries and green beans with a tasty blue cheese sauce, to keep your fillet steak moist and juicy.
What to serve with lamb steak
Lamb has a distinct flavour that sets it apart from other meats. Traditionally, lamb is often accompanied by a mint sauce that enhances the rich flavours of the meat, and served with a side of roasted new potatoes. Lamb steaks are incredibly versatile and can be paired with various rice-based dishes for a lighter lunch option.
What to serve with sirloin steak
Sirloin steak is often cut thinner compared to other steaks like rump and fillet, making it a wonderful complement to lighter dishes. Strips of sirloin work well in stir frys with an array of vegetables and some noodles for a wholesome meal. Sirloin steak can also work well as a sandwich ingredient or even as a filling for tacos.
What to serve with tuna steak
Tuna steak stands out among the few varieties of fish cuts that can be enjoyed similar to a traditional meat steak. Many people choose to pair a classic tuna steak with a salad and vinaigrette dressing. For a heartier meal, try serving your tuna steak alongside lemon-infused potatoes to enhance the flavours of the fish. Tuna steak easily absorbs bold Asian flavours such as teriyaki, making it a delightful addition to noodle bowls or rice dishes..
