Steak Skewer Side Dish Ideas
Here are some side dish ideas that pair great with our Bloody Mary Skewers without the addition of any food that your food eats.
SuckerPunch Esquites Mac N' Cheese
Keep it in the SuckerPunch family with this side dish. Esquites is incredible as it is by itself, it's even better in mac n' cheese.
Mexico meets middle America in this elevated version of the Sonoran street food sensation. Creamy cheese, sweet, crunchy corn, and the snappy punch of SuckerPunch pickles. We can't think of anything better to pair with a bloody mary marinated steak kabob.
If you're familiar with the SuckerPunch Blog, you undoubtedly have read our article about our dill pickle dip. Every good steak kabob deserves an equally superb dip, and this one is the SuckerPunch take on a cucumber classic. Made with dill pickles, fresh herbs, and SuckerPunch pickle juice, this dip packs a little more punch than your classic tzatziki.
This one doesn't require much explanation. Biscuits are delicious, and bread is always an acceptable side dish for all types of kebabs. This is the perfect side for those who like tasty food but don't like to put forth a whole lot of effort as biscuits can be removed from a can and placed into an oven for hassle-free cooking.
Plus, if you have biscuits, you can make yourself a mini shish kabob slider...and yes, those sliders DO need a SuckerPunch pickle on top.
Potatoes are about as much of a vegetable as pickles, so we feel confident that we're in the clear, including this in our list of optimal side dishes. While there are many recipes for potato salad, we believe the best recipe is one that adds a splash of SuckerPunch brine and some finely chopped Original Spicy Garlic Chips for a spicy snap.
We're not saying that this steak kabob recipe requires you to host a dinner party. In fact, we're all for you making a whole tray of steak kabobs just for you to treat yourself. However, should you decide to have some guests over to showcase your incredible culinary prowess, we recommend having some extra SuckerPunch Bloody Mary Mix on hand.
Not to bury the lede, but if we're being totally honest, the best side dish for Bloody Mary marinated kebab is a SuckerPunch Bloody Mary. Just add vodka, and enjoy responsibly.
