Today is my dear husband's birthday. We will have a celebration for him, once he returns from that job he does so well. He has been busy non-stop for work...it is that time of year again (it won't let up until at least the end of March). I am ready for a break. Once when we were dating he ordered a Filet Mignon (steak wrapped in bacon with a bleu cheese butter on top). I am attempting to replicate the recipe along with a few of his favorite side dishes.
Filet Mignon (With Bleu Cheese Butter)
adapted from: http://cavemanketo.com/bacon-wrapped-filet-mignon-with-bleu-cheese-butter/
2 bacon wrapped filet mignon (or filet of beef)
4 slices of bacon (wrap each filet again with 2 slices)
3 T softened butter
1 t minced garlic
onion powder, just a shake
Montreal Steak seasoning, just a sprinkle
25g Bleu cheese crumbles
Sprinkle beef with salt and pepper. Sear beef on both sides for slight carmelization (about 3-4minutes/side). Make butter; combine all ingredients in a bowl (and refrigerate). Place seared steaks in 450 oven until just done to your likeness (about 8-10minutes). Top with butter mixture, watch it melt and ooze.
