8-ounce Tenderloin, cubed into 20 pieces
1 tablespoon your favorite steak seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil
10 slices Precooked Bacon, cut in half, room temperature
2 ounces Gorgonzola
1/4 cup of your favorite steak sauce or bbq sauce
Blot dry the Tenderloin and cut into 20 pieces. Gently toss in the steak seasoning, set aside.
Preheat a skillet on medium high heat. Add the oil and heat briefly. Add the seasoned meat to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes, or long enough to sear the sides but keep the center rare.
Remove from the skillet and cool.
Wrap each seared tenderloin with 1/2 piece of bacon and secure with a tooth pick. Stand the wrapped tips up on a sheet pan and pack about 1/2 teaspoon of the cheese in the center of the bacon.
Preheat oven to 350˚F and heat the bacon-wrapped tenderloins for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Add 20 small dollops of steak sauce to a platter. Place each tenderloin on top of the sauce and serve, Makes 20 servings.
