I only made the scotched mushrooms and they were quite awesome! They would go good with any type of steak.
OMG! This was just fantastic and the mushrooms were awesome! I should have made a double batch on the mushrooms.....next time I will and next time is just around the corner. I just made this this last weekend and I'm making it again this weekend, we enjoyed it so much! I did however, use 4 strips of bacon to fit around the filets because I used 8-ounce filets instead of 5-ounce ones. We wanted more than just the 5-ounces. I made brown sugar carrots to go along with it and it was soooo good! I have even highly recommended this recipe to my friends and family! Thank you so much for sharing. I will make this again and again! :-)
Wonderful reccipe! Do need two pieces of beacon per steak Great flavor on mushrooms the only different is I would omit the thyme The thyme over powered the recipe but it was still delicious
modestock, in other words, you didn't try the recipe and yet felt compelled to rate it. That's not fair to those of us who make the decision whether to make or not to make the recipe based on the ratings.
Why would anyone want to ruin a good piece of meat like a filet mignon? A filet needs nothing except maybe a little salt and pepper. 12 to 15 dollars a pound and make it taste like bacon? Yikes!
This is a fantastic recipe! One thing I do is use regular ginger ale instead of diet, and I thicken the sauce with cornstarch because its so thin. Also my filet's must be enormous compared to the ones this recipe used. I use 2 pieces of bacon for each filet tie each one with cooking twine, and use a grill pan when browning the meat so that I can have those grill lines in the steak. Perfect veggie with this is garlic sauteed asparagus.
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!!

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).
