Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon Dinner

Last week I recreated a most spectacular dinner for my husband! This dinner not only was reminiscent of the first dinner he made me, but it was just down-right delicious! When he served me this dinner, I was completed swept off my feet. He thought of so many details and had a beautiful spread ready for us to enjoy.

Now that I turned the tables on my hubby and recreated his menu, I learned just how easy it is to pull off this rather impressive and romantic dinner.

It is this easy…

  • Two beautiful filet mignons approximately one inch thick
  • Two pieces of uncooked bacon
  • Kitchen twine
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter

  1. Allow your steaks to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes. Filet Mignon and Bacon
  2. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  3. Wrap strip of bacon around the edge of your steak. Stretch bacon a bit if it is needed so that it can fully encase the edge.Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon
  4. Secure the bacon onto the steak using kitchen twine.
  5. Generously season steak with salt and pepper.
  6. Heat a large oven-safe cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and allow it to get hot.
  7. Add butter to the hot pan and swirl pan to coat evenly with the melted butter.
  8. After the butter begins to bubble, add the steaks to the pan. Sear each side for 2 minutes.Bacon Wrapped Filet Cast IronBacon Wrapped Filet Mignon Seared
  9. Transfer pan directly to the oven. Cook the steaks until they reach your desired doneness. Tuning once at mid-point. Refer to the chart below for times. Use a meat thermometer at the thickest part of the meat to determine doneness.
  10. When steaks are done, remove from the oven and transfer to a clean plate. Cover with foil and let rest 5-6 minutes to allow juices to redistribute.
  11. Remove twine from steaks before serving.

Here is a steak doneness chart for a one-inch thick steak

  • Rare: (120°- 130°F)  Five minutes on the first side and three minutes after turning.
  • Medium Rare: (130°-140°F)  Five minutes on the first side and four minutes after turning.
  • Medium: (140°-150°F)  Six minutes on the first side and four minutes after turning.
  • Well Done: (160°-170°F)  Eight minutes on the first side and six minutes after turning.

While the steaks were in the oven, I “grilled” my seasoned asparagus on the stove using a grill pan. I simply seasoned the asparagus with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper.seasoned asparagus

Using tongs, I tossed the asparagus to rotate and cook evenly. As I had very thin and young asparagus, it cooked up very quickly – five minutes.

I had cleaned and ready salad greens. I simply topped with salad fixings that I picked up from the grocery store’s salad bar. This was super easy, and I tossed it all together with favorite bottled balsamic dressing.
