Grilled Filet Mignon with Wine Sauce and Prosciutto

This was a last minute fillet mignon with red wine sauce and prosciutto bitts.
I had no time for marinade :-(

After tying them with cooking twine to keep them nice and round sprinkle the meat with your favorite steak rub. I used garlic powder, celery salt and Weber Chicago Style Steak.
Grill the steaks over hot coals for about 8 minutes per side (5 minutes per side for rare): turn them only once.
Let meat rest.

Cut prosciutto or bacon into small dice. Place in a pan and cook over medium low heat  until crisp. Remove prosciutto/bacon.
Pour red wine into the same pan over high heat, add a rosemary sprig. Wait until wine becomes thick and syrupy. Turn off heat.
Add butter and then the prosciutto/bacon bitts.

Pour over the meat.
