Sliced Fresh Side Pork Bacon (DIY Bacon) - 1 lb.

SKU: 70702
Availability: In stock
$8.95

Calling all chefs! DIY Bacon is here! 

Sliced Fresh Side Pork Bacon is a unique new offering for home chefs wanting to make their own bacon. It is not cured or smoked and tastes like fatty pork. Like our other bacon varieties, these slices do not contain additives, nitrates, preservatives, or dyes. Essentially, it’s “naked bacon” that can go anywhere as far as flavor depending on what spices you add. The only ingredient is pork. See for yourself why Fresh Bacon Sides have been a staple in country butcher shops for years.

If you are looking for a more conventional bacon (but without additives, nitrates, preservatives, or dyes), we suggest our Sugar Free Pork Bacon Slices.

Ingredients: pork

Each package of Sliced Fresh Side Pork Bacon weighs approximately 1 pound.

Yum yum
I love this bacon!! The first time we and it, it didn't have much flavor but the texture was great. The next time I cooked it I added sat, pepper and garlic and it was much better. This bacon is very thick, never and anything like it!!

mostly fat with very little meat
The package I received was mostly fat (90%) with very little meat on it. If this is what you like, then you will like this cut of bacon. Not what I prefer, so I will be using it to render lard.

Thank you for supporting us! We are very sorry for your disappointment a credit was previously directed back to your method of payment for the Sliced Fresh Side Pork Bacon. You are always welcome to use the special notes box at checkout to include any special packing requests for our freezer team. "Extra lean bacon" is a little challenging to accommodate, but our crew will do their best to find the leaner appearing packages for you. We're happy to hear you were able to identify an alternative use plan for the bacon and we think you will enjoy the rendered fats.  Please reach out at any time if we may be of further assistance. With gratitude, The US Wellness Meats Team

tasty treat
I have found this to be a lovely tasty snack when I am traveling or between meals. The lard rendered from it is a bonus I hadn't considered when I bought it.  Yum!

we could not eat it
We love and are committed to your wonderful ground beef and roasts but this bacon I'm so sorry to say had an awful smell and we could not stomach it. we would be grateful for a credit toward your other products that we love. Thank you so much. We are so sorry, but cannot afford to throw meat away, but had to. I believe we ordered 4 lbs.

*From USW Meats- We are sorry for your disappointment with the DIY bacon! It is ideal for customers who want to make their own bacon. We have issued a refund to your card. We welcome your honest feedback at any time. With sincere gratitude, The US Wellness Meats Team

Amazing!
I ordered this as is way way way cheaper then the regular bacon and since we eat a lot of bacon i figured it was worth a try. I fried it with salt, pepper and a lil cumin and WOW, amazing texture and flavor. It reminded me a lot of what my great grandmother made when I was very little. Honestly I cant recommend this enough. Just spice it up to your taste and you wont be disappointed!

Pork Belly
These are more accurately called Pork Belly than Pork Bacon.  So while it did taste excellent (I love pork belly!) I think the description should be updated as it seems misleading. I would describe it as Pork Belly sliced bacon style.  Pan sear, ideally in a cast iron skillet, coat liberally with sea salt and cook until crispy.  Mmmmm

Amazing!
They're cut like thick-cut bacon, but it's fresh pork belly, which is way better in my opinion. Very very tasty. 400 degree oven, place on parchment, season with salt, pepper and smoked paprika. Roast in the bottom of the oven for 10 minutes, drain some of the fat, flip and roast for 5-7 more minutes, until crisp. Lots of fat is rendered out, so a 1 lb. package will yield just 1/4 lb. cooked pork belly - 7 thick slices which in my household is 2 servings (or sometimes one when it's just me and I'm hungry!).
