Beef tenderloin

When we went to Fairway last weekend, we also picked up a whole beef tenderloin. I had no choice. It was only $21.44. For the entire thing of meat.

Last night I decided to cut it into steaks.

They were a bit uneven. I think next time I'm going to try wrapping it in saran wrap first to make things easier. I've seen real butchers do that. But I didn't think of it this time around.

We had some bacon in the fridge so I decided to wrap the steaks in it. The bacon helped to hold them into a nice round shape.

We had some of the steaks for dinner tonight. It's definitely worth the effort to wrap tenderloin in bacon. The bacon adds really good flavor, although it doesn't get crispy, so it's better to just leave it to the side and not eat it.
