A steakhouse meal without a pricey steakhouse tab is as easy as can be with our elegant recipe for filet mignon that won't break the bank! Savor the tastes and the savings!

4 servings

4 (6- to 8-ounce) 1-1/4-inch filet mignon steaks
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4 slices bacon

Dijon Herb Butter

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
1/8 teaspoon cracked peppercorns

  1. In a medium bowl, make the Dijon Herb Butter by combining the butter, mustard, parsley, and cracked peppercorns. Mix until combined then place in a crock and chill until ready to use.
  2. Preheat the broiler. Season the steaks with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large skillet, slightly cook the bacon over medium-high heat until lightly browned but not crisp. Wrap 1 slice of bacon around each steak and secure with a wooden toothpick.
  4. Place steaks on a broiler pan or rimmed baking sheet and broil 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until desired doneness beyond that. Remove toothpicks and serve with a scoop of Dijon Herb Butter topping each steak.
