  • Pat tournedos dry. Evenly space four sage leaves along one strip of bacon. Wrap bacon strip around the circumference of one tournedo; tie with kitchen twine. Repeat process with remaining sage, bacon, and beef.

  • Heat a large cast iron skillet over high heat until it starts to smoke. Season tournedos with salt and pepper and place bacon-side-down in skillet. Cook, without moving, until bacon is well charred, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Rotate tournedos a quarter turn and cook until bacon is well charred, 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. Repeat process two more times until bacon is well charred. Turn tournedos on their flat side and cook, turning once, until medium-rare, 2 to 3 minutes per side.

  • Transfer tournedos to a platter and let stand for 3 minutes. Remove string and serve.

TY for this awesome recipe. I will be making this for dinner tomorrow night, but as I don't have any beef steak in the freezer at the moment (we live 40 minute drive from shops) I will try using some venison steak.
