Kirby’s knows steak. So much so, we include it in the name, Kirby’s Steakhouse. However, don’t make the mistake of thinking Kirby’s focuses so much on steak that we don’t care for the other meal components.

Each of the 18 a la carte items printed on the menu are available every day and crafted to make the meal you eat a memory making experience.

You might think there’s no way to choose the right side since there are so many to choose from, but don’t fret.  The chefs and staff at Kirby’s are trained to help you choose the right combination, no matter what main dish you choose.

Pair your meal like a chef

Clarence Alexander, the chef at the Kirby’s Woodlands location, shared a few pro-tips to help you prepare for your next meal at Kirby’s.

“The first thing you decide is what the protein is going to be,” Alexander said. “If the steak is a fattier steak, you are going to want something green to go with it. It will help break up the richness of the protein.”

For instance, if you order a Prime “Cowboy Cut” ribeye steak there are several options from which to choose. For something green, you might choose grilled rosemary zucchini.Grilled rosemary zucchini on a white plate

Another green option could be the fresh broccoli. If broccoli isn’t an option you’re interested in, maybe you’ll like the fresh sautéed vegetables, fresh asparagus, or the creamed spinach. These green vegetable dishes increase the overall experience of your meal.

“You would go with something richer as a side if you choose a less fatty steak,” Alexander said. “Choosing your protein can depend on the style of wine you are interested in or the season – but in the end, you’ll choose your side based on the richness of your protein.”

If you decide to pick the Blue Ribbon Filet Mignon, you could choose the French fries or the baked potato.

Another perfect side for a leaner protein pairing is one of Kirby’s signature macaroni and cheeses, which you will definitely want to try. Choose from the lobster, jalapeno, or traditional macaroni and cheese and your filet will have a wonderful partner.

Side notes about sides

No matter what steak you decide to devour, we offer a wide variety of ways to spice up your main dish. To enhance the flavor at Kirby’s you can choose the Cognac Pepper sauce or the Roquefort sauce. “We also have the Cabernet poached mushrooms which will compliment any steak on our menu,” Alexander said.

Our chef is also fond of the Susie’s Famous Mashed Potatoes. “She adds sour cream and cream cheese to make them both rich and decadent,” Alexander said.

The last bit of advice from the chef is not to overlook the mushroom risotto. The Cabernet poaching liquid is added to the risotto and made for each individual order.

If you feel as though you could use some more practice pairing your sides with your steak of choice, let Kirby’s help you. Make a reservation at any one of the three Kirby’s locations today.
