Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon
If your holiday entertaining calls for something special, filet mignon is a good choice and couldn’t be easier to prepare. Cut from the tenderloin, filet mignon is the most tender cut of beef. It’s not the most flavorful cut, so wrapping the filets in a strip or two of bacon secured with toothpicks adds a bit of flavor as well as helping the steak hold it’s shape while cooking.
Because beef filet lacks the rich beefy flavor we love in other cuts of beef, I almost always grill it outdoors. Filet mignon can also be pan fried or broiled, but this is how we like it best.
