A steakhouse meal without a pricey steakhouse tab is easy as can be with our elegant Presidential Steak recipe for filet mignon that won't break the bank. Savor the tastes and the savings of this meal fit for a President!

What You'll Need

  • 4 (6- to 8-ounce) 1-1/4-inch filet mignon steaks
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 slices bacon

  • Dijon Herb Butter:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
  • 1/8 teaspoon cracked peppercorns

What to Do

  1. In a medium bowl, make the Dijon Herb Butter by combining butter, mustard, parsley, and cracked peppercorns. Mix until combined then place in a crock and chill until ready to use.
  2. Preheat broiler. Season steaks with salt and pepper.
  3. In a large skillet, slightly cook bacon over medium-high heat until lightly browned, but not crisp. Wrap 1 slice of bacon around each steak and secure with a wooden toothpick.
  4. Place steaks on a broiler pan or rimmed baking sheet and broil 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until desired doneness beyond that. Remove toothpicks and serve with a scoop of Dijon Herb Butter topping each steak.



Such a distinguished steak should be complemented with equally distinguished sides! Why not try our Au Gratin Potatoes and our Classic Creamed Spinach for a celebratory meal. And for dessert, how about an all-American apple pie!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Just my opinion. I could not, would not take a nice piece of meat that costs $12.00 a pound when not on sale and wrap bacon around it. Would not want bacon flavored filet mignon.

Tried this recipe? What did you think?

I like old recipes and this recipe must be over 30 years old or it would use bologna as the meat base.

To easily enhance this recipe one could use flavored bacon as opposed to plain bacon. By using mesquite or applewood bacon, one could easily enhance the dynamic flavor of the filet. To make the recipe more health concious, one could simply substitute the bacon for turkey bacon.
