The only way to make filet mignon if you ask me!! You wont make it any other way again! Only use a heavy bottom pan with this recipe.

  • 4 thick cut filet mignon steaks, have butcher slice it for you


  1. Wrap bacon around each filet.
  2. Heat a HEAVY BOTTOM pan on medium-high.
  3. Place the 4 filets on heated pan.
  4. Turn after 7 minutes.
  5. Remove from heat after another 7 minutes.

  7. DO NOT use this recipe if you don't own a heavy bottom pan!
  8. Go invest in one now!

My husband and I are trying to eat healthier, so we used turkey bacon instead of the fattier pork bacon, and it tasted wonderful! Great recipe.

this was delicious... but I agree with the other poster... I had to cook it longer also. And I also sprinkled it lightly with rosemary.

This was very good! I too am a spice person so I spiced mine up a bit. I used a cast iron skillet and had to cook about 8 mins on both sides. Thanks for posting.
