Bacon-Wrapped Steak is a luxurious menu item that can be found at just about any steakhouse. The only problem is that you have to pay an arm and a leg to eat the meaty goodness. But have no fear, you can easily replicate the steakhouse experience at home and it is super easy to do.
The first step is to pick out the perfect steak. Any type of steak will do, however, you do need to consider the circumference of the steak. When you cook the bacon, it will shorten. Therefore, you need to either pick steaks that are smaller than the length of cooked bacon or you will need to cut larger steaks down to size.
The next step to achieving luscious bacon-wrapped steak is to fire up the grill. Preheat to about 350°F. Lay the strips of bacon across the grate and par cook until it is slightly brown.
Wrap the cooled bacon around the steaks and use a toothpick to keep the bacon and steak together.
Grill the steak to your desired doneness based on how thick the steak is. We prefer a medium rare steak that is still juicy and pink on the inside.
Some people use the touch method to determine doneness, which you can see demonstrated here. If you have heat sensitive fingers, we would not recommend this method.
Our preferred method is using a timer. We have never had a problem with overcooking using this method. You can see a grilling time chart here.
Let your steaks rest for 5 minutes and then enjoy!
