What is Filet Mignon?

Filet Mignon is a lean, tender and about 2 inch thick cut of beef from the tenderloin. This part of the cow is known to be the best tasting and very tender.

Filet Mignon is best cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees.

Why We Love This Recipe

I used to think that you could only get Filet Mignon at a restaurant. But then I discovered how easy it is to make at home.

Why do you wrap Filet Mignon in bacon?

Wrapping the Filet Mignon in bacon is mainly to hold in the juices. It also provides extra fat and flavor to the filet if the Filet is seared properly.

Variation Ideas

  • Bacon – You can cook these tender steaks with different types of bacon.
  • Seasoning – We used simple seasoning when cooking steak. Feel Free to add your favorite seasoning. We suggest garlic powder, thyme or any fresh herbs.
  • Sauce – Once you remove the steaks from the charcoal grill or gas grill, top with a compound butter. The butter melt as the steaks are resting for delicious flavor.

Step by Step Instructions

  • Step 3 – Season Filet Mignons – Then season both sides of the filets with the salt and pepper.
  • Step 4 – Oil the Grill grates – Rub the grill grates with extra virgin olive oil to prevent the sticks from sticking.
  • Step 5 – Grill Steaks – Place the steaks on direct heat and sear them for 5-10 minutes per side with the lid on the grill closed.
  • Step 6 – Flip Steaks – Then flip the juicy steak to their sides to grill the bacon around the outside of the steaks slightly. Grill for about 15-30 seconds per side until the bacon is crispy.

  • Step 7 – Check Steaks Temperature for doneness – Then check the internal temperature of the steak with an meat thermometer to check the temperature of the steaks.
  • Step 8 – Continue Cooking – If the steak is not to the temperature that you prefer then continue to cook for additional time until the internal temperature is the preference that you prefer.
  • Step 9 – Let Steak Rest – Remove the steak from the grill and let the steak rest to room temperature for 3-5 minutes, then slice, serve and enjoy.

How long should I grill Filet Mignon?

The best way to test for doneness in a steak is by inserting an instant read thermometer into the thickest part of the steak. Do this through the side, not the top of the steak.

Steak Temperature for Steak Doneness:

  • Cool to warm red center – Rare – 120F
  • Warm Red Center – Medium Rare – 130F
  • Hot pink center – Medium – 140F
  • Mostly brown center – Medium Well – 150F
  • Full brown in color – Well Done – 160F
