Bacon adds flavor and retains moisture
Bacon-wrapped filet mignon has become a popular way of serving a steak. However, most folks don't understand the reasoning behind it. Chefs call it barding, a cooking method designed to allow very lean cuts of meat such as a filet to absorb additional moisture and fat. This helps to keep the meat from drying out. Barding is often done using bacon or fatback and wrapping it around the leaner meat cut.
Cooking your bacon-wrapped filet
The barded fat bastes the filet while it is roasting, adding flavor while also helping to hold in the filet's moist and succulent taste. As your steaks cook you have two choices. You can choose to leave the bacon in place and serve the filet wrapped with the bacon. However, most people want their bacon and their steaks to have some crispness to the touch. If that is what you prefer, approximately 15 minutes before the filet is finished cooking, remove the bacon to allow the steak to brown.
