What to serve with fried ribeye?

My husband likes when I make fried steak, thinly pounded and breaded ribeye that's deep fried. (I don't know if that sounds weird or not, but it's pretty tasty.) Anyway, I serve it with homemade potato chips, but the plate seems kind of empty. Any suggestions for what I can serve with it? I really can't think of anything except a salad.

Thanks,
~K

Since your steak is fried, I think I would go with smashed potatoes with some onion in the water while the potatoes are boiling, then just mash it right into the mixture. As for another veggie, (other than salad), go with something colorful like glazed carrotts, or corn, peas, or roasted root vegetables.

Cube steak, sure.

I could not do that to rib eye either, but, if someone pointed a gun at my head and forced me to do that I'd think about some roasted red potatoes and a nice crisp green salad or a green veggie of some kind.

Mm I'd love some mashed potatoes, but dh insists on potato chips. Ah well. A nice colorful veggie sounds good. Try to inject *some* kind of nutritional value into this deep fried meal. Maybe I'll go with some carrots and a nice salad.

Thanks for the help! Please don't think less of me for deep frying a nice steak. =)

Just to show him, throw some wheat germ into whatever batter you are using to wreck that poor harmless piece of meat!

Roasted asparagus or broccoli, steamed carrots, garden peas, haricot verts. Any green vegetable will be fine.
And I am with the others--I could not imagine frying, let alone deep frying a ribeye. But do what you have to do!! ;o)

What you have there is a gourmet country fried steak. I'm sure it comes out beautifully tender.
I can't even think of country fried steak without mashed or smashed potatoes and gravy...I like cream gravy, but some prefer brown...a vegetable such as green beans, peas or corn to mix in with your potatoes and gravy...and a homemade roll.

That's the tradition, anyway.
