If you are lucky enough to have some venison in your freezer like we are (thanks Dad!) you will love these bacon wrapped venison medallions. And even if you don't have access to venison, these would be delicious made with beef too.
The font I chose for this image is called TALL DARK AND HANDSOME and I thought it was only fitting for such a manly recipe. Because when we start wrapping meat with bacon we're hitting manly recipe territory.
I don't usually venture into this manly food territory, but in a house full of boys, my efforts were certainly appreciated. There wasn't a bite left. Our four year old even went back for seconds.
Are you feeling adventurous? If so, wrap some meat in bacon and enter this lessor traveled food world with me. Believe me, you will enjoy this culinary adventure.
1 package (12-16 oz.) bacon
1 pound venison steak medallions
1. In an iron skillet fry bacon turning it to cook both sides until it is about 1/2 cooked. You want it a little crispy, but still soft enough that you can wrap it around the meat. You will have to do this in batches.
2. Let the partially cooked bacon cool until you can handle it without burning your hands. Then wrap a piece of bacon around each medallion pinning it in place with a toothpick.
3. Cook the bacon wrapped medallions in the bacon grease turning to cook evenly until desired doneness. Salt and pepper while cooking.
These would also be great on the grill and would be a little leaner since you wouldn't be cooking them in bacon grease.
