Ingredients

  • 1 pound beef * cut into 1" cubes

Instructions

  • Wrap each cube of beef in a third of a slice of bacon. Secure with a toothpick.
  • Place the beef bites onto a baking sheet or rack and baste with half of the barbecue sauce. 
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, turning and basting with the remaining barbecue sauce halfway through, or until the beef is cooked through.
  • For crispier bacon, place the tray under the broiler for 1-3 minutes, keeping a close eye to make sure nothing burns.
  • Serve with extra barbecue sauce , if desired.

Notes

Tips and Techniques for the Best Bacon Wrapped Barbecue Beef Bites

  • Use a tender cut of beef for the best results. The most tender cuts of beef come from the tenderloin, but are typically the most expensive – think filet mignon. Other tender cuts are flat iron, New York strip, porterhouse, and T-bone.
  • To make this recipe low carb and keto-friendly, choose a low or sugar free barbecue sauce. I use G Hughes brand.
  • Store leftover beef bites in an air-tight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
