Reverse sear Bacon Wrapped Filet Mignon

The king of steaks. The small but mighty bacon-wrapped filet. My mouth is watering just writing this. The key to the perfect filet is the reverse sear! Place in the oven on low heat until it reaches the perfect temperature of 129 degrees, then sear it over high heat to get that perfect crispy texture.
