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.
- 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.
