This is one of our all-time favorite recipes. You can practically hear your arteries hardening while you eat it, but it is worth every bite!
Mock Filet Mignon
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 cups cooked rice (we use leftovers)
1 cup diced onion
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
In a large bowl, combine beef, rice, onion, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and garlic powder; mix well. Shape into six (we often make 8 smaller patties) patties. Wrap a strip of bacon around each patty; fasten with a toothpick. Place in an ungreased shallow baking dish. Bake at 450 degrees for 30 minutes or until meat is no longer pink.
Generally, we have baked potatoes and green beans with our Mock Filet Mignon. It is a wonderful meat and potatoes, stick to your ribs kind of meal!
