Boiled Bacon ?!?

This is a tip from America’s Test Kitchen

Rather than cooking bacon in a hot skillet, where some pieces are overcooked and others are rubbery, try this:

  • Put bacon in the bottom of your skillet
  • Add water just to cover
  • Turn the heat up to high
  • When the water starts to boil, reduce the heat to medium
  • Boil off all of the water
  • When the water is gone, reduce the heat to medium low
  • When the bacon is fully cooked you will see your bacon in just a bit of grease
  • Remove and blot the bacon
  • This should have a nice bite to it, be crisp yet chewy

      Bradford. Thanks for the comment. I visited your web page and see that you are a musician. I’ve recently been diagnosed with the start of Rheumatoid Arthritis and am selling my guitars. Fender Telecaster, Ovation 12 String, Yamaha Bass, Spector Bass and an acoustic bass guitar. Details of four of them are at (far right column) but let e know if you have any questions or are interested. I’ve not yet listed any of them, so you have first grabs at this point in time.
