Bacon Wrapped Petite Filets with Herb Butter

Recipe from Caroline Fey @ Mariposa Kitchen. Serves 8

This is from the Everything's Better with Bacon cooking class I took.

8 petit filet
8 strips bacon
toothpicks for securing

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 tablespoon shallots, finely chopped
1 tablespoon parsley, finely chopped
1 tablespoon thyme leaves, finely chopped
1/2 tablespoon rosemary, finely chopped
2 teaspoons tarragon, finely chopped
1 teaspoon lemon zest


Butter: Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Let sit for as long as possible before using to allow flavors to develop.

Steaks: In a medium saute pan, cook 6 strips of bacon for just a minute or two, until half cooked and still pliable. Let cool.

Wrap the filets in the bacon strips and secure with toothpicks. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Make sure the steaks are room temperature before grilling. Oil grill over medium heat for 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare. Top with herb butter while still hot.
