Bacon-Wrapped Beef Filet

Cooking for Families

This is my youngest Nanny Kid’s favorite dinner. It’s savory, looks impressive, yet is so quick and easy to prepare. I make one beef filet per person and this recipe that

I found on the Foodnetwork by Ree Drummond. The recipe is written for one serving. Just increase the ingredients per person.

You Will Need:

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 beef filet steak, 8 to 10 ounces, 2 inches thick
1 piece thin bacon
1 tablespoon butter, more if needed
1 tablespoon olive oil

What to Do:

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

2. Generously salt and pepper both sides of the steak.

3. Wrap the steak with the bacon. Stretch the bacon a little to make sure it’s tight and snug. Secure the bacon with a wooden toothpick.

4. Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter and olive oil. When melted, add the steak to the skillet and sear on both sides until a really nice color, about 1 minute per side.

5. Remove the skillet from the stovetop and place into the oven to finish cooking. Cook until medium rare, 7 to 10 minutes.

6. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
