1 (235ml) bottle zesty Italian salad dressing
2 beef tenderloin fillets, 4 to 5cm thick
2 slices streaky bacon
20ml steak sauce
20ml water
1) Pour the salad dressing into a shallow dish, place the steaks in the dish and allow to marinate for 3 to 4 hours.

2) Heat up a charcoal barbeque. Wrap a strip of bacon around each steak, securing it with a cocktail stick.

3) Cook the steaks over hot coals for about 8 minutes per side for medium-rare (5 minutes per side for rare). Baste with a mixture of steak sauce and water. For perfect steaks, turn them only once.
