Grilled Bacon-Wrapped Filet Mignon
Makes 4 Servings
Takes 1 Hour
• 4 (6- to 8-ounce) filets mignons, cut 1½ to 2 inches thick
• 8 slices HORMEL® BLACK LABEL® Bacon- Original
• Salt and coarsely ground black pepper
• 2 tablespoons oil
Prepare grill for medium-high heat.
Put filets on a plate and let stand at room temperature 30 minutes before grilling.
Wrap two strips of bacon around each filet, keeping the bacon even with the top and bottom of each filet.
Secure the bacon with wooden picks. Sprinkle both sides of filets with salt and pepper.
Lightly rub oil on both sides of filets. Place filets on grill. Grill 3 minutes. Turn filets. Grill 2 to 3 minutes longer or to desired doneness. To determine doneness, insert a meat thermometer into the thickest part of the filet.
The meat thermometer will read 120ºF for rare, 130ºF for medium rare, 140°F for medium, 150°F for medium well and 165°F for well done. Remove filets from grill and let rest 5 minutes before serving.
