The perfect Valentine's Day present? A romantic dinner for two, of course!
Recipe courtesy Paula Deen
One 8-ounce bottle zesty Italian salad dressing
2 beef tenderloin fillets, 1 ½ -2 inches thick
2 slices of bacon
2 tablespoons Paula Deen’s Steak Sauce
2 teaspoons water
How to make it 25 minutes, plus 3-4 hours marinating
Pour the salad dressing into a shallow pan, place the steaks in the pan and let them marinate for 3 to 4 hours. Prepare a fire in a charcoal grill. Wrap a strip of bacon around each steak, securing it with a toothpick or kitchen twine. Grill the steaks over hot coals for about 8 minutes per side (5 minutes per side for rare). Baste with a mixture of steak sauce and water. For perfect steaks, turn them only once. Serves 2.
