Step by Step Method

Step 1

To make the steak seasoning: heat a cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add the first 4 ingredients (salt - cardamom) and toast for 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Let cool for 5 minutes. Stir in sugar.

Step 2

Step 3

Sprinkle steaks with the steak seasoning.

Step 4

In a bowl stir together 1/2 cup butter, thyme, parsley and salt. Transfer mixture to a sheet of parchment paper. Roll into a tight log in parchment; twist ends to tighten. Wrap in foil and freeze until solid (30 minutes).

Step 5

Wrap each fillet with 1 slice bacon, securing with a wooden pick, if needed.

Step 6

In a large cast iron skillet, heat remaining butter (2 T) over medium high heat. Add fillets; cook bacon-wrapped sides first until browned and crispy. Turn, and cook flat side down to desired degree of doneness (5-6 minutes per side) for medium. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Top with herb butter.

Delicious!! We like our steak med-rare so I cooked the bacon a little bit before I wrapped it around the steak. It helped to cook the bacon all the way through before the steak was done.
