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.
