These fall-inspired apple bites are a perfect starter to any gathering or a great snack to keep in your fridge when you crave something sweet and savory. The crunch of the apple and tenderness of the beef are a satisfying combination and make every bite easy and delicious.
5 sprigs fresh rosemary, removed from stem and minced
3 Sweet Apples (golden, gala, honey crisp)
1 package sugar-free uncured bacon
Let's cook this
Preheat oven to 400F. Place bacon in a single layer on a roasting rack or directly onto parchment. Cook the bacon until the desired doneness but still flexible enough to bend around the apple. About 8-10 minutes.
While bacon is cooking, make the beef.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, start to brown the beef and add salt.
Remove beef with a slotted spoon. In the same pan, over medium heat sauté shallots, garlic, and rosemary until the shallots are soft and caramelized. Add beef back in and stir until combined. Turn heat off and set aside.
Remove bacon from oven.
Slice apples into flat, 2-3 bite slices. About 1/2" thick. Should make about 25-30 slices. Cut apple right before you assemble and serve to make sure they don't turn brown. If you would like to slice ahead of time, keep the apple sliced in cold water.
Place a tbsp of beef mixture onto each apple. wrap 1/2 piece of bacon around the apple and stick with a toothpick.
Assemble on a platter and sprinkle with extra rosemary. Enjoy within about 15-20 minutes of plating.

"Real talk...since my cancer was environmental and not hereditary I am super conscious of what goes into my body, especially protein. Post chemo left my body super low in iron so steak remains in my diet. I found Pre a few months ago and it’s the only meat I buy. Grass-fed, no added hormones and most importantly affordable. Eat better for your body people!"
"Your steaks, especially the sirloin, ribeye, and filet mignon are absolutely delicious. Wasn’t sure how these cuts would taste grilled but they taste just as good if not better than cuts I’ve had a top notch steakhouses."
"When our son was diagnosed with a rare medical disorder, it meant that we would have to change our diet as a family. Because his metabolism doesn’t function like a typical person’s, we have to be very careful about what we feed him. One of the changes we made was to use more grass-fed and finished beef in our cooking. We decided to give Pre a try, and we are so happy with the quality and taste of the meat. Buying from Pre gives us peace of mind and we feel confident knowing that we are using a product in the top of its class."
"This beef is AMAZING! I'm from Wisconsin so a huge steak lover. This is some of the best beef, I've experienced and I've had beef around the world. It's a must try, and you'll understand what I mean."
