Preparing a birthday dinner is always fun. And with a group of men, it can be very simple. I made fancy steaks and twice baked potatoes. This combination is over the top and only fit for your best friend’s birthday.

Grilled Steaks with Stilton and Fried Shallots

  • Your favorite cut of steak (I used NY Strip)
  • A nice piece of stilton

Grill the steaks to your desired temperature. Right before they are done, top with slices of stilton and allow to melt. Top with fried shallots.

Fried Shallots:

  • 2 cups thinly sliced shallots (about 4 large shallots)
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • 2 cups canola oil

In a small saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high until it registers 300°F on a deep-fry thermometer. Mix shallots with flour and cornstarch. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, until light golden brown, about 8 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shallots to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.
