Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 20 min.

Grill 4 slices belly (streaky) bacon (thinly sliced) in the oven at 390°F (200°C), for about 20 minutes until nicely browned and leave the oven on afterwards.

Set aside.

Stage 2 - 4 min.

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan on high heat.

When really hot, add the filet mignon (after seasoning with salt and pepper) and fry briefly until browned all over.

Stage 3 - 1 min.

Take the filet mignon out of the frying pan and split open by slicing across the middle, but do not cut right through the far side.

Fold the meat back over the filling and tie firmly in place with string to avoid it opening up during cooking.

Stage 8 - 20 min.

Stage 9

Undo the string, then serve in thick slices with your choice of accompaniment.
For the cheese, I reccommend Gruyère or, better still, Comté, but you can use whatever you prefer, of course.
Should be eaten immediately.
