Seasoning 

Season the filet mignon steaks with salt and pepper, and any other desired seasonings. You can use garlic powder, thyme, or rosemary for extra flavor.

Wrapping 

Take one slice of bacon per filet mignon steak and wrap it tightly around the steak. Ensure that the bacon completely covers the surface of the steak.

Securing 

If needed, you can use toothpicks to secure the bacon in place. This will prevent it from unraveling during the cooking process. Make sure to remove these toothpicks before serving.

Preheat 

Preheat your grill or skillet to medium-high heat. You want it to be hot enough to sear the steaks quickly but not so hot that it burns the bacon.

Cooking 

Place the bacon-wrapped filet mignon steaks onto the preheated grill or skillet. Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the bacon is crispy and the steak reaches your desired level of doneness. For medium-rare, aim for an internal temperature of 130-135°F (54-57°C).

Resting 

Once cooked to your liking, remove the filet mignon steaks from the grill or skillet and let them rest for a few minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the meat, resulting in a more flavorful and tender steak.

Serve 

After resting, serve the bacon-wrapped filet mignon steaks hot, optionally garnished with fresh herbs like parsley or thyme. They pair well with sides like mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a side salad. Enjoy your delicious, juicy, and flavorful meal!
