Make your last Farmers Market meal for 2018 something special by preparing this dish for a festive holiday meal. Shop Pastured Perfect and Farmer Nick’s for your filets and seasoned bacon. Glunz Family Winery and Cellars will have the perfect red wine to accompany this dish. We are thinking an after dinner port from Glunz would be perfect to top off your dinner. Ask Kevin for his recommendation. Enjoy!
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 beef filet steak, 8 to 10 ounces, 2 inches thick
1 piece thin bacon
1 tablespoon butter, more if needed
1 tablespoon olive oil
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
Generously salt and pepper both sides of the steak. Wrap the steak with the bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Heat an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the butter and olive oil. When melted, add the steak to the skillet and sear on both sides until a really nice color, about 1 minute per side.
Remove the skillet from the stovetop and place into the oven to finish cooking. Cook until medium rare, 7 to 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
