A Faux "Cute Filet"

Filet Mignon in French means "cute filet" or "dainty filet". A filet mignon is typically a steak cut from the small end of the tenderloin. The tenderloin is the most tender and thus expensive cut of steak. Filet Mignon is a tender, savory, and delicious cut of meat. It is highly expensive though. Many times they are prepared wrapped in bacon.

This recipe substitutes hamburger meat for the expensive steak cut. It is seasoned with lemon pepper, Parmesan cheese, and mushrooms. These faux filets are then wrapped in bacon and baked in the oven. The result is amazing. It is great served with garlic mashed potatoes or a baked potato on the side. Throw in a green side salad or a side caesar salad and you have a meal that will leave you full and satisfied.

I  typically slice my roll prior to cooking, but you can cook in a log and slice afterward.

Cook Time

Prep time: 20 min
Cook time: 40 min
Ready in: 1 hour
Yields: Several Servings

Ingredients

  • 2 lb. hamburger meat
  • 1 1/2 tsp lemon pepper
  • 1 8 oz can mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tbsp onion, minced
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced jar kind
  • 2 tbsp green bell pepper, minced
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded or grated
  • 1 pack bacon, (enough to wrap each "steak")
  • 1 small bag spinach, fresh (optional)

Directions

  1. Mash hamburger meat into a 9 x 13 pan, covering the bottom.
  2. Sprinkle lemon pepper onto the meat. Then sprinkle the Parmesan cheese on top of that.
  3. In a small bowl, mix up the mushrooms, onions, and green peppers. Spread this mixture over the meat. Top with spinach leaves also if desired.
  4. Roll the meat up into a jelly roll. Slice into "rings".
  5. Wrap each "steak" with a piece of bacon, fastening it with a toothpick. (I suggest paritally cooking bacon first.)
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 40 minutes or until cooked throughout.

      This sounds delicious! I'm a burger lover...I do eat filet mignon but as you pointed out it is very expensive, this sounds like the best of both worlds and I can't wait to try it....guess what's for dinner tonight?

      Voted up, useful, interesting and wishing there was a tasty button.

      Marcy, turkey would probably be a great substitute because it would still taste great and would reduce the fat content substantially. Let me know how it turns out if you give it a try. Thanks for stopping by my page. Hope you will return soon. :)

      I totally didn't know about the 'cute filet' term! Although I did know that Mignon was a girl's name in French. I may try this with turkey, since I no longer eat beef. Great idea for making a less-expensive version of a traditional favorite!
