Cook bacon in a large deep skillet over medium heat for 5 to 7 minutes, stirring often, or until crispy around the edges. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Reserve fat in skillet.
Meanwhile, pat beef strips dry with paper towel and season all over with ½ tsp (2 mL) each salt and pepper. Heat reserved skillet over medium-high heat. Cook beef for 3 to 5 minutes, tossing occasionally, until browned but still pink inside; transfer to a bowl and cover.
