The other night for dinner we ate our bacon-wrapped filet mignon steaks which we bought from Omaha Steaks. I cooked them on a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat, for about 6 minutes on one side, then 5 minutes on the other, and finishing up with a couple minutes on the edges to make sure the bacon was cooked. The internal temperature (checked with an instant-read meat thermometer) read about 130 when I took them off the heat, and they were a nice medium rare when we cut into them.
Being filet-mignon meant the steaks were very tender and anything wrapped with bacon is going to be extra-special. We added a pat of butter on each filet (because why not?) and the juicy steaks did not disappoint – we were all satisfied!
We rounded out the meal with a spinach salad and homemade fries, which were great compliments to the steaks. Steak Frites – so good!
This was the last meal that we cooked from the special order we received from Omaha Steaks. I have to say, these were the best of the bunch, without a doubt.
