What goes well with rib-eye steak?

Sweet potato fries. Creamed baby potatoes and onions. Grilled asparagus seasoned with olive oil, pepper, and kosher salt. A crunchy salad of tomatoes, cucumbers, celery, beets, peppers, and red onion with blue cheese dressing, or dressed with a good vinaigrette and a generous measure of blue cheese crumbled into the salad. Spinach sautéed with lemon and garlic, and seasoned with salt and pepper and a hit of hot sauce.

Dauphinoise potatoes are great. Here’s a recipe from BBC GoodFood and another from Epicurious.

Or try making blue cheese bread: Slice a baguette in half lengthwise. Lightly brush with olive oil and toast lightly. Mix equal amounts of cream cheese and good blue cheese. Pile on toasted bread and run under the broiler until cheese is bubbly.
