Fuzzy’s Bacon Wrapped Filets

Method Of Preparation:

Wrap each filet with three strips of bacon and tie them securely. Coat top and bottom with salt, pepper, rosemary, and thyme. Let rest at room temperature.
Make brown butter by browning and discarding two strips of bacon. Add 4 tablespoons of butter. Add 1/3-1/2 minced shallot and stir until browned. Add rosemary, thyme, salt, and pepper. Add minced garlic and stir until browned. Turn off heat.

Method Of Cooking:

Big Green Egg (other smoker or grill) directly on cast iron grate over the flame. Medium amount of Natural Lump Charcoal 500-550 degrees for 4-5 minutes per side.  Once the outside is seared on both ends, remove steak and let rest for 10 minutes before serving (cook times will vary based on Egg temperature and steak thickness).  Dress steak during rest period with brown butter reduction, crumbled bacon (used while making brown butter), and crumbled blue cheese.

Total Cook/Prep Time: 50 minutes (30 minutes prep, 8-10 minutes cooking, 10 minutes dressing the plat).

Feeds: This steak is too good.  Every person deserves their own steak.   No Sharing.
