My absolute FAVORITE way to eat filet mignon! (except from Ruth's Chris Steakhouse)
This recipe comes from the http://www.allrecipes.com/ website.
Keep in mind that this recipe is only for two people. Double it for company.
4 cups heavy cream
3 ounces crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
4 (8 ounce) fillets beef tenderloin
1 pinch lemon pepper
1 pinch garlic powder
1 pinch onion powder
salt and ground black pepper to taste
12 slices thick sliced bacon, chopped
4 green onions, chopped
1. Pour heavy cream into a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat and simmer until the cream has reduced by half, stirring occasionally, about an hour. Remove from heat and whisk in the Gorgonzola cheese and Parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, and nutmeg, until the cheese has melted.
2. Season the beef tenderloin with lemon pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper. Set aside. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon on a paper towel-lined plate.
3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
4. Cook the steaks until they start to firm, and are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, 3 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Remove the steaks from the grill and tent with foil to rest for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve each steak with the Gorgonzola sauce and top with crumbled bacon and chopped green onion.
Alternative: Wrap the filets in bacon
