Bacon Wrapped Fillets

Is there anything better than a really good steak? Before I got pregnant with Claire I could name about 100 things that I thought were better. But I swear the second I got pregnant with her, I could NOT get enough red meat. Clearly my body wasn't going the sweet route that it did with Max. I probably ate red meat a couple of times a year but in the months pregnant with Claire, I think I ate an entire cow. Her Dad would beg for chicken to be served, lol. After she arrived, I didn't lose my love of steak.

Imagine my glee when Target was having a sale and I got bacon wrapped fillets for cheap! The added bonus is they are pretty quick to cook.

First thing you need to do is season them with Season Salt, Pepper and Accent. Give a liberal shake, pat the seasoning down, flip them over and repeat. I didn't measure, sorry, but for this size steak, probably between 1/4 and 1/8 t of each seasoning on each steak. Let them rest for at least 15 minutes to soak in the seasoning.

Get a pan out and heat that baby up for a minute or two. Throw in a tablespoon of butter, give it a swirl. Put your steak in the pan and sear for about 2 minutes, flip to another part of the pan that has been heating up. Don't flip over in the same spot, you want the heat of the pan to sear in the juices. If your pan isn't big enough to have open space, no worries, just cook in batches and make sure you use a new hot spot each time.

Put the seared steak in an oven proof pan. Put in 400 degree oven. We like our steak Medium so for this size steak, about 13 minutes worked perfect. Take out of the oven and let rest for a few minutes before serving.
Season and sit for about 15 minutes
Get your pan HOT, throw in a pat of butter and then the steaks
Flip them to a HOT spot in the pan
Put them in the pan and throw them in the oven
Dinner is served
