Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon {Autoimmune Paleo}

by | Jan 25, 2017 | Autoimmune Protocol, Recipes | 4 comments

Thank you all for the birthday wishes both here on the blog and over on Facebook and Instagram last week! My husband and I actually spent most of the day grocery shopping (Costco, Trader Joe’s, Natural Grocers – first big shopping trip since before Christmas due to all the storms and snow days!) but I was so grateful for the extra help since he had the day off work due to the holiday. While we were gone the boys cleaned up the house and the girls baked that amazing cake. (I sliced the leftover cake, enjoyed a piece for breakfast the next day, and put the slices in the freezer to enjoy once I ever recover from this cold/flu and the sinus/ear infections. I’m getting there!) 
I already shared most of the pictures from the day, but I also wanted to share the recipe we made for dinner. It was soooo good! Since we purchase a side of organic grass-fed beef each year we are blessed with some special cuts of meat that we wouldn’t purchase otherwise. We had made this once before, as a special Mother’s Day meal either last year or maybe it was the year before, and saved the recipe. I look forward to making again for another special occasion… Perhaps for St. Valentine’s Day if I can find some more filet mignon in the freezer! 

Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon 
with Paleo Mushroom Sauce

Ingredients:

  • 6 pieces grassfed filet mignon (4-6 ounces each)
  • 6 pieces pastured, sugar-free bacon
  • 6 toothpicks
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, bacon grease, beef tallow, or other cooking fat
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 8 oz cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup bone broth

Directions:

  1. Wrap the bacon around the outside of each piece of meat and secure with a toothpick. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Over medium-high heat, melt cooking fat and heat until shimmering.
  3. Place meat in pan and cook for 3-4 minutes, then flip and cook 3-4 minutes on the other side for medium rare. (For medium cook an additional 1-2 minutes; for medium well cook an additional 2-3 minutes, and for well done cook an additional 3-4 minutes.)
  4. Remove meat from pan. Tent with aluminum foil to keep warm. 
  5. Cook onion and mushrooms for several minutes in now empty pan, stirring constantly.
  6. Pour bone broth into pan and use wooden spoon to loosen browned bits. Continue cooking until reduced by about ½.
  7. Pour over steaks and serve immediately.

    That looks delicious. Do you pre-cook the bacon?

    No, it cooks at the same time as the steak. Last week we did cook a few pieces of bacon first, since I needed some bacon fat in the pan and didn't have any on hand, but the steaks were all wrapped with un-cooked bacon before I started cooking them. (The four oldest kids and my husband and I had the 6 steaks, the three youngest had hamburger and the extra bacon.)

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
