🥔 Potato sides
Whenever someone asks me what goes good with pot roast, I always start with potatoes! You can serve creamy mashed potatoes to soak up the gravy, crispy seasoned potatoes to add texture, or even step outside of the box with baked sweet potatoes. These are absolutely essential pot roast sides!
🥕 Vegetable sides
There are so many vegetables to go with roast beef dinner! If you’re shooting for a more classic menu, I suggest green beans and pan roasted corn. But oven-roasted broccoli and crispy Brussel’s sprouts also make good options.
