This is one of the easiest ways to add delicious flavor to the steak. While filet mignon rarely needs help in the flavor department, bacon just seems to make it better. If you can find a pre-wrapped steak, then that is a plus, however, wrapping the steak yourself will give you the option of what type of bacon to use.

Ingredients

  • 4 filets mignon (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 milliliters sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 ground black pepper (coarse)
  • 4 slices bacon (thick-cut)

Steps to Make It

  3. Carefully wrap steaks with bacon. You might need to cut the bacon if it is too long. Secure with toothpicks if necessary.

  4. Place on the grill and cook for about 5 minutes per side. Bacon should be nicely browned, but not overly crispy.

Steaks can also be cooked in a cast iron pan on the stove top over medium-high heat. Cook for 5 min per side for medium-rare, or until desired doneness.
