Grilled Bacon Wrapped Fillet Mignon
Fillet Mignon is my favorite cut of beef. Unfortunately, I do not eat it out as much as I used to for two reasons 1) it’s an expensive cut of steak and 2) I prefer to eat delicious, expensive meals hot and when they are served, which means no kids with me (and that happens never). So I started cooking these yummy steaks at home and found you get way more for your money, and it’s just as good, if not better.
First preheat your grill. I typically cook these over med-low heat. Take your raw steaks and brush with Olive Oil. Season each side with garlic powder and salt and pepper (or I actually prefer using Morton’s Nature’s Season). Once the steaks are seasoned wrap each steak with two pieces of bacon. You can keep in place with toothpicks or cooking twine if desired.
Place on grill and cook over med-low to medium heat 10 minutes per side or until you have reached desired wellness. 10 minutes per side usually produces medium wellness but it may need to be adjusted based on grill temperature and thickness of steak.
Serve with desired sides. In photo I also grilled sliced green peppers which were also brushed with olive oil and Nature’s Seasoning. I cooked them, and turned them the same as the steak. I added a baked potato and some Bird’s Eye frozen sliced green beans with almonds. Total prep time was about 10 minutes, total cook time 20 minutes.
