Beef tenderloin is a tender and flavourful cut of beef that is perfect for special occasions or a decadent dinner at home. It’s known for its tenderness and juicy texture, and is a favorite of many steak lovers. One delicious way to prepare beef tenderloin is by wrapping it in bacon, which adds an extra layer of flavour and texture to the dish.
To make bacon-wrapped beef tenderloin, you’ll need:
- 2-3 lb beef tenderloin, trimmed of excess fat
- 8-10 slices of bacon
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Salt and black pepper
- 2-3 cloves of minced garlic
- 1 tbsp chopped fresh thyme
- Preheat your oven to 425°F.
- Season the beef tenderloin with salt, black pepper, garlic, and fresh thyme, making sure to coat it evenly.
- Wrap the bacon slices around the beef tenderloin, tucking the ends under to secure them.
- Heat the olive oil in an oven-safe skillet over high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the beef tenderloin and sear it for about 2-3 minutes on each side, until the bacon is crispy and browned.
- Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast the beef tenderloin for 15-20 minutes or until it reaches an internal temperature of 125°F for medium-rare.
- Remove the skillet from the oven and transfer the beef tenderloin to a cutting board. Let it rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving.
