  • Prep: 45 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins


1 lb (500 g) Beef Tenderloin Oven Roast, cut into 1-inch cubes

Coarse sea salt and freshly ground pepper

11 strips of thin-cut bacon, halved crosswise (about 1pkg, 375 g)

Mushroom Crust:

1 pkg (14 g/0.50 oz.) dried mixed mushrooms

5 green onions, coarsely chopped

¼ tsp EACH coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

½ cup panko breadcrumbs

1 tsp black sesame seeds (optional)

Wasabi Dipping Sauce:

Stir together ½ cup sour cream

¼ cup mayonnaise

2 cloves garlic (minced)

1 tbsp fresh lime juice

2 tsp wasabi paste. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days)


1. Season beef cubes all over with salt and pepper. Wrap each cube in a half slice bacon; secure with toothpick. Set aside while making Crust mixture.

2. In mini food processor or food processor, pulse together mushrooms, green onions, salt and pepper. Remove and toss with panko crumb. Place mixture in shallow dish. Press each beef bite into crust mixture, turning to coat. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 8 hours.)

3. Place Beef Bites on rack setting on parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 400°F oven, turning once, until bacon starts to crisp and beef is still pink, about 10 minutes. Finish Bites by broiling just until golden and crisped, about 2 minutes. Serve warm with Wasabi Dipping Sauce.


If you’re a fan of the ‘2-bite brownie’ you’re going to love these Beef Bites. Two-bite portions of tenderloin are a super way to enjoy this luxury cut while having it stretch further. Serve as the protein bite with a winter salad or serve as a fabulous appetizer. You can make them ahead and just pop in the oven before serving if you like – they take just minutes to cook. You could use prosciutto instead of bacon if you like.
