Father's Day Sage/Bacon wrapped Filet

We've had such a relaxing weekend, I just didn't
feel like leaving the house for dinner. I was feeling a
bit differently last week when I made reservations at
Ruth's Chris for Father's Day, but today... Not so much
I promised to make it up to him with his Favorite
dinner at home. Bacon and sage wrapped Filet Mignon
After placing fresh Sage leaves against the filet,
wrap it with a piece of bacon. My butcher always
throws in a few strips with the filets I select
Secure the bacon with a piece of Butcher's twine
While the skewers of Shrimp marinate in the refrigerator,
allow the wrapped Filet to come to near-room temperature
Usually I would begin my filets in my cast iron
skillet on the stove and then finish them in the oven
But not tonight!
Not since I found this beautiful Grill griddle at Sur la Table last
week! This beautiful stainless steel griddle will allow me to prepare
my filets on the grill without the worry of Flare-ups. Get yours here
I placed the griddle on the grill and set the burners directly
underneath it to high. When the gauge on the grill reached 400
degrees, I prepped the surface with a little extra virgin olive oil
Time now to sear the Bacon and sage wrap...
All the way around the filet
Once the filet is seared on all sides, lay the filet flat to finish
Just as the filet finishes, I added the
shrimp skewer and Ciabatta to warm
Marinated in olive oil and garlic-basil rub... Smells ah-mazing!
I could make a meal of just these sweet babies!
Add a baked potato and Dinner is Served!
I think I'm off the hook now
for canceling our reservations!
Especially since his filet was so Perfectly prepared!
