Crispy Shallots

Toss the shallots with the cornstarch, shake off or use a strainer to get off any excess. Heat oil in a shallow pan to medium heat. Place the shallots in the oil and move a round until they are browned. Place on paper towel lined plate or pan and season with salt

You can use any great steak cut for this sandwich. We chose hanger and smoked it. Once your steak is cooked or smoked to your desired temperature, slice and place on top of a crusty Hoagie roll. Top with a generous slather of the Blue Cheese Vinaigrette and the sprinkle some of the crispy shallots over the top!
