One 8-ounce bottle zesty Italian salad dressing

2 beef tenderloin fillets, 1 1/2-2 inches thick

2 slices bacon

2 tablespoons steak sauce (recommended: Lea and Perrins Steak Sauce)

2 teaspoons water


  1. 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.
