Side Ideas for Chateaubriand Beef Tenderloin

Side Ideas for Chateaubriand Beef Tenderloin

Chateaubriand beef is a centuries-old French recipe invented by François-René de Chateaubriand, a French aristocrat. Grumpy Butcher has gone to great lengths to get this recipe just right. This is a roasted center-cut filet mignon with wine, thyme, garlic, shallots, and butter. Our technique to this wonderful beef cut involves modern sous vide, so that you get an exceptionally tender cut. If you are thinking that Chateaubriand beef from Grumpy Butcher sounds excellent, we have a few side suggestions that will help make this a delightful meal. 

Fried potatoes

The fried potatoes that you love in most restaurants are quite easy to make at home. You simply need a few ingredients to fill out your Chateaubriand beef dinner. First you will need to peel and chop some potatoes. Then you will need some minced garlic and olive oil. You can then fry the potatoes in the minced garlic and olive oil. You will then add parsley, salt, and pepper. After about five minutes, you will have wonderful fried potatoes to serve with your Chateaubriand beef from Grumpy Butcher. 

Consider steamed asparagus

Steamed asparagus is a delightful side dish to serve with Chateaubriand beef and it only takes a few minutes to prepare. If you microwave frozen asparagus, consider adding some butter and salt for a wonderful flavor. If you have more time in the kitchen, you can try preparing a white wine sauce. Herbs, garlic, scallions, and olive oil will need sautéd in a pan for about two minutes. You can then add some white wine. When your asparagus is ready, drizzle the white wine sauce over the asparagus and you will have a wonderful side dish. 

Corn on the cob

It used to take some time to get corn on the cob ready. You had to husk it, clean it, and then cook it. Today, corn on the cob is available in frozen options and makes for a great side dish to go with your Chateaubriand beef. Once you have your corn on the cob ready to go, you can make a wonderful paprika butter sauce to drizzle on it. All you need is a stick of softened butter, smoked paprika, and chopped rosemary. 

A salad of your choice

Fresh vegetables and lettuce will go nicely with Chateaubriand beef from Grumpy Butcher. You can use any lettuce variety that you'd like, freshly chopped tomatoes, and grated cheese. Instead of regular ranch salad dressing, you might want to try lemon juice and either olive oil or balsamic vinegar for an exotic flavor that goes nicely with the tender beef you are about to enjoy.
