This was amazing, I made it for my boyfriend on his birthday and he said it was the best meal ever. I used filet mignon which are always good on their own but I didn't end up using the crab stuffing after all, I tasted it before I stuffed the steaks and didn't really like it enough to put into such a nice steak. It wasn't missed because of how delicious the sauce was.
The sauce was the best part of this, my only problem was the garlic cooked too much, next time I'll be really careful with the garlic in the pan.. after you cook the garlic and then add mushrooms, and then the steak, the garlic ended up black before I could deglaze the pan. I think it was my mistake but it happened so fast. I would also recommend to half-cook the bacon before you wrap it around the steak if you like it crisped, it was kind of chewy because it didn't get to cook very long in the pan (I like my steak medium rare to rare, so the cook time was only about 7 minutes)
All in all it was delicious, this recipe is time consuming so I prepared caesar salad and double stuffed baked potatoes earlier in the day, which helped a lot time-wise
