Step 1

To Prepare The Beef: Wrap 2 slices of bacon around the outside of each fillet and tie with kitchen string. Season the fillets with salt and pepper and refrigerate until ready to use.

To Prepare The Mushroom Stock For The Risotto: Combine the button mushrooms, garlic, 2 cups of the onions, and the water in a large stock pot. Simmer over medium-low heat for 2 hours and strain through a fine-mesh sieve, discarding the solids.

To Prepare The Risotto: Cook the remaining 1/2 cup of onion and the butter in a large saute pan over medium heat for three minutes, or until translucent. Add the rice and cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Slowly add 1/4 cup of the mushroom stock and stir until it is completely absorbed. Add the remaining mushroom stock 1/4 cup at a time, stirring continuously with a smooth, gentle motion, until the liquid is completely absorbed. Cut the roasted mushrooms into bite-sized pieces and stir into the risotto. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the mushrooms are warm. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and chives and season to taste with salt and pepper.

To Cook The Beef: Prepare a medium-hot grill. Grill the steaks over a medium flame for 4 minutes on each side, or until medium-rare or cooked to the desired doneness. Remove the string before serving. Spoon some of the risotto in the center of each plate, top with a fillet, and drizzle the reserved mushroom cooking liquid over the meat and around the risotto.

To Prepare Roasted Mushrooms: Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Combine the mushrooms, onions, garlic, thyme, olive oil, and water in a small roasting pan, cover, and bake for 30 to 40 minutes, or until the mushrooms are tender. Remove from the oven, cool in the cooking juices, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Use immediately, or refrigerate for up to three days.
