Ingredients

  • 2 bacon strips
  • 2 beef tenderloin steaks (5 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 cups sliced baby portobello mushrooms
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 tablespoons butter, divided
  • 1/4 cup Scotch whiskey
  • 1/2 cup diet ginger ale
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage

Nutritional Facts

1 filet with 1/3 cup mushroom mixture equals 581 calories, 37 g fat (15 g saturated fat), 108 mg cholesterol, 729 mg sodium, 10 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 35 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a small skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels to drain.
  2. Preheat oven to 375°. Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper; wrap a strip of bacon around the sides of each steak and secure with toothpicks.
  3. In a small ovenproof skillet coated with cooking spray, cook steaks in 1-1/2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat 2 minutes on each side.
  4. Bake, uncovered, 8-12 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  5. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute mushrooms and thyme in 1 tablespoon butter and remaining oil until tender; remove from heat. Add whiskey, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Stir in ginger ale, brown sugar, soy sauce and sage.
  6. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 3-5 minutes or until reduced by half. Stir in remaining butter. Serve with steaks. Yield: 2 servings.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 23, 2013

The mushroom sauce was one of the best things I have ever tasted. It wasn't too hard and the only thing that not everyone would have is the scotch. Great recipe!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 3, 2012

The recipe was good, not what I was expecting. I didn't realize how odd the ginger ale was in the recipe until I was making it, it was fizzy and didn't make for a thick sauce; which I prefer. Anything wrapped in bacon tends to be good. Wish I knew what contest this won.. I'd make it again with a more tender cut of beef (not sure which one I used).
