While they appear to be culinary masterpieces requiring professional chef training, bacon-wrapped sirloins are actually relatively simple to prepare. Home cooks need just need a little patience and a reliable pair of tongs to get through the searing process. Follow a few simple steps to impress your family or guests with a decadent steak dinner.

Step 1

Remove the sirloin steaks from the packaging and place them on a clean plate a few inches apart from each other. Season the tops of the steaks with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and any spices and herbs you enjoy. Flip the steaks over and repeat on the other side.

Cover your kitchen counter with several sheets of plastic wrap, using tape to hold them in place if need be. Place a few toothpicks, at least one for each steak, near your workstation.

Spread out one strip of thin bacon for each sirloin steak. Leave several inches of space in between each strip, so you have enough room to wrap.

Place a sirloin steak on its side along a strip of bacon, rolling it until all edges are surrounded. Secure the loose end of the bacon with a toothpick, paying special attention not to push it too far in. Repeat this process with each sirloin steak.

Step 5

Preheat the oven to a moderately high temperature of about 400 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Place a large oven-safe stainless steel or cast iron skillet on your stove and set the temperature to a medium-high heat.

Add about a tablespoon of butter and drizzle of olive oil to your pan until the bottom is evenly coated.

Step 7

Lift each bacon-wrapped sirloin steak gently with your tongs by grasping the top and bottom -- the areas that are not wrapped in bacon. Lay each steak flat in the hot pan with a few inches in between to allow for even cooking.

Step 8

Allow the steaks to sear for about a minute or until you notice an even golden brown color. Turn the steaks over to sear the other side.

Turn off the stove and remove the pan from the burner. Open the oven door and place the entire pan inside the oven on a middle rack. Let your steaks finish cooking in the oven for seven to 10 minutes to achieve medium-rare doneness, or longer if you prefer a more well-done steak.
