Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon
D'Artagnan | Yield: serves 4 | Cook Time: about 20 minutes
Sometimes we like to gild the lily. Here’s an easy recipe for bacon-wrapped filet mignon with truffle butter.
- Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
- Wrap a slice of bacon around the perimeter of each steak and secure with butcher’s twine. Season with salt and pepper.
- Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat. Add just enough oil to coat bottom of pan. Sear steaks until browned, about 2 minutes each side including the bacon wrapped edge. Transfer pan to oven and bake until steaks reach desired temperature, about 6 minutes for medium-rare.
- Move steaks to a cutting board and top each with a teaspoon of truffle butter. Rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.
