bacon wrapped steak

i needed a meal that said “congratulations” because congratulations were in order for brad and his new career endeavors.  i know he likes steak.  no, loves.  but i wanted to do something a little more than just a steak.  i was talking with fellow friend and foodie from bon chappétit and he sent me the link to his filet mignon wrapped in bacon.  brad is a man’s man and i thought what else could he want more than meat wrapped in meat?  i was sold.

you’ll need:

  • two steak (preferably filet mignon)
  • two to three slices of bacon per steak
  • 2 tablespoons shallot, minced
  • a drizzle of olive oil
  • salt & pepper for seasoning

    rub the steaks with the oil and season with salt and pepper.  wrap the slices of bacon around the steak.  do not use tooth picks to secure the bacon.  apparently they will catch on fire according to bon chap –  the bacon will retain its shape so worries!

    place the steaks on a medium high grill, or under the broiler.  cook for about 7 minutes each side or until preferred done-ness.  while the steaks cooked, i sauteed up the shallots with a small pad of butter and sauteed up some green beans in a separate pan with garlic.  once the steaks have reached to your desired done-ness remove them from the grill or broiler and let them rest for a few minutes.  top the steaks with the shallots and serve.  i will say this was intersting for me.  brad LOVED the bacon wrapped steaks.  i found it to be a little much but that’s what i was going for – it was a celebration!  we should indulge every once in a while.   yum!

    1. Also for the record, I only used a single slice of bacon per filet. 2-3 might’ve been overkill 🙂
