Grilled Filet Mignon Wrapped with Bacon

Why not skip the Steakhouse this time and try these Filet mignon steaks wrapped with bacon that are easily grilled to perfection.


Tender, juicy with a smoky and crispy crust; is how these babies really taste, and the way we can describe them.  When it comes to grilling meat, my husband does it best, but today I want to show you how easy it will be to grill these filet mignons without any fuss.

OK, I think I might have a solution for your Father's Day gift idea. Well maybe. Instead of buying another shirt or gift card, how about impressing him with grilling a special dinner ? With easy tips on grilling a perfect filet mignon, serving with some veggies as a side, and a special bottle of wine, may just do the trick! 


Buy a package of filet mignon at your local supermarket or at your butcher shop.  The steaks should be approximately 1 inch and half to 2 inches thick.  Simply take one to two slices of bacon and wrap each one, and secure with toothpicks.
Place the steaks on a dish or platter. Generously season over them with garlic powder, fresh cracked black pepper, and some salt to your taste. Then allow the steaks to sit on the counter to warm up to room temperature, about 15 minutes.
In the meantime, heat your grill to high heat.  Place the filet mignons onto the grill.  If you close the lid,  then lower the heat to medium.   
Grill them for 4 minutes on each side.  Just before you take them off the grill about 1 to 2 minutes before they are ready, add a slice of butter (about 1/2 teaspoon) on top of each steak.  
When the butter completely melts, remove and serve! 
Serve these with any of our vegetable sides like Easy Garlic Mashed Potatoes, or try our
 Crunchy Broccolini with Garlic,  and don't forget the wine!
To all you wonderful fathers out there, Happy Fathers Day!!
Yields: 1 filet mignon per person
