Bacon-Wrapped Steaks: Make Your Inner Ron Swanson Proud
Sometimes you just have to indulge yourself and make your inner Ron Swanson proud.
And if you aren't able to handle Turf and Turf, why not have a single great big juicy steak, cooked medium rare, wrapped in crisp, bacon slices? You should do it. Because you're a free American.
1 pound sirloin steaks (about 2 large pieces)
1 tablespoon Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
6 pieces bacon strips
1 teaspoon minced garlic
Cooking spray for the baking pan
1. Marinate steaks 1 hour before or more with Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Put them in a plastic resealable bag and refrigerate for at least an hour.
2. Prepare a shallow baking pan with cooking spray.
3. Wrap the bacon strips around the steaks. Place the steaks in the shallow baking pan.
4. Bake in a preheated 400 F degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. This will cook the beef to a medium rare. The bacon should be crisp and sizzling by then. If you need a longer cooking time, add 5 minutes more.
Serve while immediately while still sizzling.
