A lightly seasoned, seared filet mignon with grilled veggies is a delicious treat for Father’s Day, or any day. Thank you to The Kansas City Steak Company for partnering with A Southern Fairytale and sponsoring this post and giveaway.
I cooked and ate that bacon wrapped filet right there, and just looking at that picture of that gorgeous bacon wrapped filet searing on my grill makes my mouth water and I have an overwhelming desire to cook another one.
Growing up, if my dad was grilling steaks, they were bacon wrapped filets which means that I have a long standing, deep rooted love for bacon wrapped filets. Actually, I pretty much just love steaks: strips, ribeyes, sirloins, filets, porterhouse.. I could wax poetic about steaks, y’all. Whether it’s grilled steaks with cilantro lime butter, Marinated Steak Sandwiches with Red Pepper Basil Mayo, or Tipsy Beef and Veggie Skewers. I’m of the belief that you just can’t go wrong with a good steak.
The Kansas City Steak Company reached out to see if I wanted to partner with them to celebrate Father’s Day with a giveaway, and of course my answer was an immediate and enthusiastic yes!
When it comes to cooking steaks around here there’s no ‘usual’ or routine; we like to mix it up. We cook our steaks over gas, charcoal, grated grills, flattop grills, open flames, in a cast iron skillet; you name it, we’ll try it. Our seasonings vary almost as much – sometimes we leave them naked, other times it’s with just a hint of garlic, salt, and pepper, occasionally there’s bourbon, sometimes there’s butter (let’s be honest,usually there’s butter), rosemary, and blue cheese; Nathan also likes to create wild and crazy seasoning combinations from my door of spices.
However, when The Kansas City Steak Company sends you their steaks with their Original Seasoning packet – you use that, and then you fall in love with it and you give thanks that you seasoned your grilled veggies with it, too!
It was so good, y’all! First off, the seasoning is simple, but delicious and the quality of the steaks – they melted in our mouths and we could have cut them with a butter knife. I received The Big Daddy Combo (a $175 combo), which includes ribeyes, filets, and strips, but it came right before we were leaving town, so I immediately put the boxes of steaks in our freezer to save for later. My parents came to visit and my dad went into the freezer to get some ice, he looked down, looked up, looked down, looked at me and asked who loved me enough to send me The Kansas City Steak Company steaks 🙂 🙂 <3
Pictured below is Nathan’s Kansas City Strip with grilled veggies and a sweet potato with chipotle butter – YUM, y’all!
I followed the instructions on the back of the seasoning packet and seared the outside of the steaks on my flattop first, and then moved them to a lower heat to finish cooking, and they were absolute perfection, y’all. The seasoning packet offers the times for cooking, but I always use my favorite meat thermometer to temp meat; back in my restaurant days I used the finger test to check doneness, but I’m getting older and forgetful, so I’m all about temping over timing .
The steaks were perfection y’all. Nathan and I prefer our steaks medium-rare, so the steaks were ready in under 15 minutes, including rest time! The steaks were waiting on the veggies to finish!
We’re spending this Father’s Day celebrating my Dad and Nathan with my parents, brothers, and my sister-in-law.
