Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Steaks

Okay, this is Alder's recipe, but Eric and I adjusted it a little to fit us. It's really easy and super yummy!

You will need:
Cream cheese (tub or block)
Jarred jalapenos, sliced

This recipe is really easy to make just a few steaks or alot - just get however much meat you think you will need. I just buy whatever is thinest and cheapest.

Cut steak into 1-1/2 to 2 inch strips. Season with onion salt and garlic powder as desired (or any other seasonings you like.) Pound meat until desired thickness. We have noticed they taste better and cook much faster the thinner the steaks are! *If you want the meat to be extra spicy, marinate them in some of the juice from the jalapenos for 30 minutes.

Spread cream cheese over steaks and add 3-4 sliced jalapenos in the middle. (Remove the seeds if you don't want them too spicy.) Drizzle honey down the middle of the steaks and roll steaks up. *Eric does the honey and the rolling up one at a time so the honey doesn't run off.

Wrap each steak with 2 pieces of bacon - one running around the opening of the steak and one running in the opposite direction. Secure with toothpicks.

Place steaks on grill and continue turning and drizzling with honey until cooked! (If the steak is thicker we will finish cooking the steak in the micowave if needed.)

Thanks Leesa! We made this for dinner the other night and it was a huge hit. It is a new BBQ favorite of ours.
