During special occasions like Valentines Day, I look forward to something out of the ordinary, something a little more luxurious and decadent like this!
2 Nourished With Nature grassfed beef filets at room temperature, patted dry
4 strips Nourished With Nature Forest-raised Berkshire bacon
4 toothpicks to secure bacon
2T Garlic Herb Butter
1 T Nourished With Nature pork lard or olive oil
Coarse sea salt and coarsely ground black pepper to taste.
Preheat grill or skillet to high heat (the grill works best for this one as it helps to crisp the bacon).
Wrap each filet around the circumference of the disc with 2 pieces of bacon, using toothpicks to secure it the bacon to the outside edge of the beef.
Next, salt and pepper the filets to your liking and place them on the grill or on the skillet with now melted lard. Grill each side 3-5 minutes, depending on steak thickness and desired doneness.
Immediately remove the steaks, apply 1T Garlic Herb Butter per steak and cover, allowing to rest for 10 minutes.
Nice sides include grilled or steamed vegetables, baked or mashed potatoes, fruit salad and Crème Brulee for dessert.
