BACON WRAPPED KANSAS CITY STEAKS
The UPS man did a drive by steak drop off yesterday. To our pleasant surprise the 'Man in Brown' left a box of bacon wrapped filet mignon. This was a gift from our very good friend Carol who also happens to live in "The Sunflower State'; Kansas. These were not your everyday, garden variety, 'Wally-World' bargain basement filet of the day. These were from the Kansas City Steak Company.These filets were from the finest Kansas corn-fed beef that had been 'Super Trimmed' and aged for 28 days. If that was not enough they were wrapped in bacon. Oh my gosh!
A quick kiss of fire from very hot mesquite charcoals was all these steaks needed. Tender, Tender with real corn-fed deep beef flavor was the verdict. This is a flavor that we crave. This may come as a shock to some but I believe these steaks really did not need the bacon. They were so tender and full of flavor that bacon was only a bit player in this show. How wonderful is it to have friends like Carol. Carol, Thank you from the bottom, top, and bacon wrapped sides of our heart.
