  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter or dairy-free buttery sticks , at room temperature
  • 2 cloves garlic , finely grated
  • 2 tablespoons fresh soft herbs of choice , chopped
  • Kosher or fine sea salt
  • 4 (1¼ - 1½ inch thick) filet mignon steaks
  • Olive oil
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices thick cut bacon
  • Vegetable oil


  • Mash together the butter, garlic, herbs, and a pinch of salt. Place on a piece of plastic wrap, wrap into a log shape, and twist the ends. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to a week.
  • Remove steaks from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 20 minutes. Lightly brush both sides with olive oil and season lightly with salt and pepper. Wrap a slice of bacon around each steak and secure with butcher’s twine.
  • Prepare the grill for direct heat and preheat to medium-high heat. Oil the grates with vegetable oil.
  • Grill for 4-5 minutes per side or until the steaks reach an internal temperature of 130°F for medium-rare. If the bacon is not crisp enough, use a pair of long tongs to hold the steaks over the grill with the bacon facing the heat to crisp it up. Let steaks rest for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  • Slice the butter into 4 discs and serve one on each steak.
