This filet mignon is wrapped in bacon and covered in bleu cheese butter. Mmmmmm!
Let's count the reasons why you need an impressive meal for two up your sleeve:
- There's a good lookin' special someone in your life.
- Your boss wants to stop by and get to know you outside of work.
- Your best girlfriend wants to stop by and drink a bottle of wine.
This is a meal you can pull together all the while wooing your new love, carrying on a conversation with your boss and listening to your girlfriend relay all the reasons a certain cute boy isn't calling her.
While your cast iron skillet is preheating, mash up the butter and bleu cheese, and take the asparagus out of the freezer. Wrap the steaks in bacon, and sear just a few minutes on each side.
When the meats come out of the pan to rest, toss in the asparagus spears.
This meal is so good, though, that sometimes I make it for myself and use the leftover steak the next day in a salad. A bacon-wrapped filet is like the little black dress of the world: Dress is up, or dress it down - it's always delicious.
