Bacon Wrapped Stuffed Steak
Bacon and steak all at the same time. Yes, life is good. The end result of this recipe looks really fancy pants, but it’s actually really quick and easy to make. You could serve this to guests and they would think you had been slaving away in the kitchen for hours.
This steak would have also been great without the bacon, but the Ancestral Health Society just released the video of Mat Lalonde’s presentation the other day. I saw this presentation live and in person and you can read all about my experience here, here, here and here.I have a huge paleo crush on Mat, and if he says bacon is okay, then I am totally going to do like he says and wrap everything in it. If that’s not enough to convince you, you can read what Mark Sisson has to say about bacon here or what Chris Kresser thinks here. Diane Sanfilippo, author of Practical Paleo, weighs in with her thoughts about bacon here.
Now that I’ve convinced you to eat bacon (yeah, I’m sure that took a lot of arm twisting!)…let’s get on to the recipe!
Simple, fresh ingredients
- 4 minute steaks (Rinds Plätzli) about 100 grams (3.5 ounces) each
- 8 strips of bacon
- 250 grams of mushrooms, chopped
- 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon of fresh thyme, finely chopped
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 1 tablespoon of ghee
- salt and pepper to taste
- 8 pieces of kitchen string
What to do
- Heat ghee in a frying pan.
- Add garlic and saute 1 minute then add mushrooms.
- When mushrooms are cooked, add thyme, lemon juice, salt and pepper and saute another minute. Remove from heat.
The stuffing for the steak
- Preheat oven to 200 C.
- Pound steaks until they are about 1/4 inch thick.
Pound your steak…it’s fun
- Then spread your cooked mushrooms over each piece of steak.
Spread out the mushrooms
- Roll jelly-roll style.
- Wrap two strips of bacon around each roll and then secure the rolls near each end (over your bacon) with the kitchen string.
Bring on the bacon!

Brown on the stove top
- Place your frying pan directly in the oven for 8-12 minutes depending on how you like your steak.
Hot out of the oven
We served this up with some delicious roasted broccoli. You could easily add a little arrowroot powder and white wine to the pan drippings to make a gravy. I, however, was in too big of a hurry to eat!
Delicious and easy
