Boss Hog likes to serve this up deliciously delectable dish up, whenever the Bacon Freak gang gets together to have some “fashionably freaky” food and family fun! It truly is the perfect balance between elegantly sophisticated culinary “gourmet-manship” and a good ole fashioned, western fireside feast.
This is an absolutely amazing recipe, as the sautéed mushrooms and onions are simmered in the wonderful Bordeaux marinade that naturally gives this rich sauce a subtle hint of slightly sweet caramel. Be sure to take the time to marinate the steak the very first thing in the morning before you go do anything else, and you will be thankful once you put the first bite of this delicacy in your mouth.
Boss Hog’s “Baby Bubba” Bacon-wrapped, Bordeaux Basted Beef Banquet
1 pound Bacon Freak Baby Bubba’s Butcher Block Hickory Smoked & Peppered Bacon
2 cups premium Bordeaux wine
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon premium, gourmet olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
Place your strips of steak into bowl or glass dish.
To create your marinade, mix together the Bordeaux wine, parsley, oregano, salt, pepper and garlic.
Pour the marinade over the steak and allow it to soak in the sauce solution for at least 8 hours in the refrigerator.
When ready to cook, first cook your bacon just enough to ensure that it is brown on both sides, but still flexible and able to be wrapped.
Now pour enough gourmet olive oil into a large skillet to slowly sauté the mushrooms and onions without them burning or sticking to the bottom of the pan. Sauté until they are browned and soft.
Remove vegetables from skillet and set aside.
Remove the steak strips from the marinade and set the reserve marinade aside for later.
Brown the steak strips in the same skillet. Brown them to the point that the steak is cooked, but still rare to medium rare.
Now wrap the still flexible bacon slices around the steak strips and use a toothpick to hold the bacon intact.
Add the reserve marinade, as well as the mushrooms and onions to the skillet and allow the contents to slowly continue cooking on a low heat for about 30 minutes. Be sure to continue to turn the steak ever 5 minutes to ensure that both sides are cooked consistently and throughout as well as ensure that the wrapped bacon is completely cooked.
When the steak and bacon are cooked to your preference, serve it all up on a plate with your favorite side dishes and have yourself a “Hog Heaven” hootenanny!
