Easy Bacon Wrapped Top Sirloin Medallions Recipe
Grilling is a year-round activity at our house. While I enjoy grilling most anything, grilling bacon wrapped steak is a bonafide treat. When it comes to grilling a prime cut of beef I think that simpler seasonings are the best giving the beef center stage. As far as seasoning, when my kitchen garden is in it's prime I can't resist making all sorts of flavored basting concoctions and fresh rosemary is the star in this butter basting sauce. There's nothing like going straight from the plant to the plate, it's magnificent. The garlic rosemary butter adds such incredible flavor to these sirloin medallions and the rosemary is growing only feet from my kitchen counter. I love it!
How to Make the Best Bacon Wrapped Top Sirloin Medallions Recipe
- Ingredients you'll need to make homemade Bacon Wrapped Top Sirloin: Thick cut top sirloin fillets, thick cut bacon, kosher salt and black pepper.
- To make the rosemary garlic butter you'll need: Unsalted butter, minced garlic, garlic salt and fresh rosemary.
- Kitchen tools you'll need: Grill or grill pan, toothpicks or skewers, measuring spoons, tongs, meat thermometer, and small bowl.
- The beauty of this recipe is that you can make two steaks or six steaks. The ingredients are easily adaptable and you can make just the amount that you need for a meal.
- I've given grilling time guidelines in the recipe, and I recommend you don't grill this particular cut past medium for the best results. Adjust to your liking, of course.
- You can make these steaks on a charcoal grill, gas grill or a grill pan indoors.
- Keep in mind that top sirloin is a rather lean cut of beef so over cooking it will ruin it. Er on the side of under cooking rather than over cooking.
- You can prepare the butter in advance then reheat just before serving for a time saver.
- A homemade steak dinner is a wonderful way to spend a Saturday night at home enjoying lively conversation and reconnecting after a busy week. Serve these sirloin steaks with a loaded Air Fryer Baked Potato, a Seven Layer Salad and a basket of Homestyle Garlic Bread and you can enjoy restaurant eats at your own kitchen table.
- Grilled steak is best made and enjoyed hot off the grill. Should you have any leftover you can turn it into steak quesadillas, chop and gently warm with barbecue sauce on a toasted kaiser roll, cut it up and enjoy on a salad or gently reheat and make a cheesesteak sandwich.
- Store cooked steak chilled in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Can I make these in the oven?
Sure, if you prefer it!
We loved this recipe. I made it for a dinner with another couple that my husband and I bowl with and we trade dinners at each others house ever so often. They were so impressed and the flavor was just right, I didn't change a thing. The only down side is they think I should make them again next time and skip their turn for dinner. Thanks, Melissa. ☺
Haha! Love it, thanks!

This recipe is great, except that the cooking time isn't clear. It states that the total cooking time is 8 minutes, then suggests sear for 3 minutes turn and go another 3. Flip it and do it again. That looks like 12 minutes to me. I was cautious and it came out great.
The cooking time, when it comes to steak should always be adjusted to your personal taste. Not more than 8 minutes total for rare, depending on thickness and your preference. For medium, around 6 minutes on each side, not 4 sides.
Beef and bacon. A match made in heaven.
Thanks so much for sharing how to cook them to perfection. The family loved it!
Thank you for such a sweet note!
I think I will try to partially cook the bacon first until it is just shy of crisp and then wrap it. I usually sear my meat on a cast iron plate before placing it on the grill. I may add the bacon pat to the top of the Iron plate before I sear it to give it the bacon flavor. What do you think. Should I marinate it first or not?
Sounds like a plan, Larry!
I have a gas grill. It seems to me that you are cooking this steak way too long. I like my steak no more than medium rare. If you have a grill at 450 degrees and cook the steak for 6 minutes (3+3) per side and then cook it for 6 minutes for each side and then let it rest for 5-10 minutes I would think that it would be way overdone. At least the bacon would be done!!
I am wondering how to get the bacon done on a bacon wrapped filet. I like to cook my filets around 500 degrees for 5 minutes per side. That is medium rare but, of course, does not get the bacon done. A friend of mine cooks his filets at a lower temperature and then longer. His filets are excellent - medium rare and the bacon is done. Any advice??
Everybody likes their steak grilled to their personal preference so, there's no under or overdone if it's the way you like it. You can always turn the steak on it's side to allow the bacon direct contact with the grates to cook it more crisp and alleviate cooking the steak longer than you prefer.
