This recipe in GIF
Stage 1 -
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.
Stage 2 -
Heat 1 tablespoon
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 -
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.
Stage 4 -
Fill with strips of bacon...
Stage 5 -
...some chopped parsley and thin shavings of cheese.
Stage 6 -
Fold the meat back over the filling and tie firmly in place with string to avoid it opening up during cooking.
Stage 7 -
Put in the oven on a roasting dish,
or even in the pan, if this can go in the oven.
Stage 8 -
Cook for about 20 to 25 minutes.
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.
