Directions

  1. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  2. Brush the filets with olive oil, and cook on the preheated grill to desired doneness (about 4 minutes per side for medium rare). An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Set the steaks aside on a platter tented with aluminum foil to rest.
  3. While the steaks are resting, prepare the sauce: cook and stir the chopped bacon in a small saucepan over medium heat until the bacon pieces are crisp, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the butter and shallots, and cook and stir until the shallots are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes more. Stir in the half-and-half, bring the mixture to a simmer over medium-low heat, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is slightly thickened, about 8 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and serve over the steaks.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Prepared beef tenderloin for a crowd but followed the original 4 servings for this sauce because we never serve anything on filets other than the salt, pepper, and seasonings put on the meat before grilling. I was in the mood for something a little different and chose this, thinking I would be the only one interested in trying it. I was wrong and should have tripled this! Everyone that tried it wanted it and I had to promise there would be enough for everyone next time. I followed the recipe except I had used my shallots in another side dish and only had Vidalia in the pantry. This worked out perfect in our opinion and I wouldn't hesitate to make it the same again. This sauce is delicious and the bacon goes perfectly with the tenderloin. Thanks for sharing!

This was ALMOST a 5/5. It had really good flavor. The half and half was not enough, ended up adding a total of 1/2 C. Also ended up adding sour cream to thicken and add a little tartness. Ended up being restaurant quality. Pairs beautifully with the steak.

This recipe has good instructions for preparing filet mignon, which was helpful as I couldn't remember exactly how to cook it. The sauce was okay, but rather bland and needed something more. Since it's made of basically bacon grease, butter and cream, you may be better off going for a more flavorful and healthy recipe.
