The first type of steak many of us are familiar with is beef steak. This is steak made from a cow and is the standard steak that many in North America eat.

The traditional way the steak has been served in my area was singed, with sauce, with a side of mash potatoes with gravy, and green beans. Whether its a favorite of anyone else outside my area is unknown but it seems to please the local folks.
Do not let this fool you though, the sides that you can have with a steak dinner are insanely numerous. The main ones that are eaten in my state are mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, cole slaw, applesauce, baked potato, and fries. Not all together mind you, that would be one sure trip to the hospital. Now add the side dishes from other areas around the world and you have quite the build menu.
As mentioned earlier there are many different kinds of steak. You can find pork steak, deer steak, and many other types. The quality of the meat also determines how the steak will turn out. There are many different kinds of beef steak to choose from at the marketplace. The lowest grade tends to be the fattiest, but the cheapest. The high end grade is very expensive, but also very lean. Regardless you have to cook them properly to get the best taste.
That usually involves a grill and the cooks favorite charcoal, or gas. Steak dinners arent just a food to be eaten though, for many entire family days are planned around the cooking of these pieces of meat. Mainly because it takes so long to cook properly. This gives people ample time to catch up with each other and play games, or just enjoy each others company.
