This was fantastic. I made it almost as is, except I used garlic and herb seasoned crumbled feta and added 1 more slice of bacon ('Cause I love bacon). I also managed to stuff all this in 3 ribeyes, not four, as there were only three of us, but they were massive steaks. Excellent recipe, thanks for posting it.
