How To Cook Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

This filet mignon recipe is sooooo simple to make and the bacon makes the already forgiving cut of steak that much more fool-proof to cook. By wrapping a strip of bacon around your filet mignon, you’re infusing the meat with bacon-y flavor and sealing in the juices making this the most epically amazing filet mignon you’ll ever sink your teeth into.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Season the filet mignon liberally with salt and pepper.
  3. Wrap one slice of thick cut bacon around the outside of the steak and secure the ends with a toothpick.
  4. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. 
  5. Add the steaks to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes or until they are seared.
  6. Flip the steaks over and immediately transfer the skillet to the oven.
  7. Cook the steaks for 10-12 minutes or until the desired degree of doneness. (Medium Rare steak will register 125 degrees on an instant read thermometer)
  8. Remove the steaks from the oven and transfer to a plate or platter. Tent the steaks with foil and rest for 10 minutes.

If you want to cook your steak to medium or medium well, you can find the exact temperatures for steak HERE.

I love to cook my bacon wrapped filet mignon in a cast iron skillet because the heat is evenly distributed and it creates a great, flavorful crust on the outside. You can also use a heavy duty stainless steel pan with excellent results.

And if the weather is warm where you are, you can also GRILL your filet mignon.…..this is super easy clean up at it’s finest!

This steak recipe is so flavorful you don’t even need a marinade for it. The bacon acts like it’s own marinade and who doesn’t love bacon marinade…am I right? 

To make your dinner party even more over the top, we love to pair our filet mignon with these Potatoes Lyonnaise…..they’re so easy to make! And start the dinner off with a steakhouse favorite Wedge Salad, also super simple to whip up.

Make your dinner extra special by serving it OSCAR STYLE!  Now, this is for those super special occasions…..or just a fancy Monday night.
