  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.

This is a great recipe. Add a 1/4 cup of white or red wine and a 1/2 cup of sliced mushrooms to the sauce, stir until you get your desired thickness.

I made this dish for company last night and ended up using double the half and half. I also made my sauce first and kept it warm under a heat lamp so I could visit with my friends and when read...

This was an excellent sauce that is quick and easy to prepare and is full of flavor. I substituted minced garlic for the shallots.

This sauce was outstanding! It perfectly complimented the beef tenderloin and my family loved it! I substituted chopped pancetta for the bacon to use up some leftover pancetta and added more h...

This recipe was fantastic! I used this recipe for the bacon cream sauce and it was phenomenal! Made the perfect Valentine's Day Dinner, paired my filets with lobster tails and viola. I didn't...

I have to agree with Elizabeth32 - be sure to make your sauce first and keep it warm. I always let my meat "rest" before serving or slicing... but the way this recipe reads, the meat is restin...
