Perfect Char-Grilled Filet Mignon
By Paula DeenJUMP TO RECIPE
- 5 slices bacon
- 4 teaspoons steak sauce
- 5 fillets 1 1/2 - 2 inches thick beef tenderloin
- 1 (8 oz) bottle zesty Italian salad dressing
- 4 teaspoons water
Pour the salad dressing into a shallow pan, place the steaks in the pan and let them marinate for 3 to 4 hours. Prepare a fire in a charcoal grill. Wrap a strip of bacon around each steak, securing it with a toothpick or kitchen twine. Grill the steaks over hot coals for about 8 minutes per side (5 minutes per side for rare). Baste with a mixture of steak sauce and water. For perfect steaks, turn them only once.
