About this product
Yes, you can enjoy kosher beef bacon, and all the culinary delights it provides. We make this pork-free bacon from the belly of pasture-raised Black Angus beef, which are known for their superior taste, quality, and marbling. Our animals are raised on pasture in the US, without any hormones or antibiotics.
Thick beef bacon is great for adding to salads, as a garnish for a soup or stew, roasting with Brussels sprouts.
Not cured or preserved. Keep frozen until use; open packages can be stored, tightly sealed, for 3-5 days in the refrigerator.
Basic Cooking Technique:
Lay pieces in a single layer in a cold frying pan, and heat gently over low heat. When the pan starts to get hot, cover with a splatter guard. Cook until most of the fat has rendered out, turning every few minutes. When golden brown (watch that they don't burn), remove pieces to a paper-towel-lined plate and let cool. They will crisp up as they cool (but they may also get eaten by passers by...you've been warned). Learn more: How to Cook Beef Bacon

Products are packed with coolant during their journey to ensure they arrive in great shape. Meats will arrive frozen or refrigerated. Most of our products are shipped frozen; occasionally, due to a very quick turnaround between when the meats arrive at our freezing and distribution facility and when they are delivered to you, meats may be shipped fresh. Meat that is cold to the touch can be refrigerated for immediate use, or frozen for later use. Learn more.
Beef bacon is hard to come by. I bought the thin and thick cut to test which I preferred. I cooked the thin cut first. Started with a cold cast iron pan and med-low heat to render the fat. I didn't add any season since it comes lightly seasoned. BEST smelling bacon ever with an amazing texture and taste. Save the fat for potatoes or eggs! Bacon is great and will buy again.
Great cut up and put into eggs. Like the thick cut best. Great flavor and one of my family favorites
Wonderful! Wish I had bought more. I do prefer the thicker slice to the thin but both were outstanding. Shipped very well. I live in Texas and everything arrived still frozen solid, woo hoo!
This might be the best bacon we've ever had. We've tried non-kosher beef, duck, and lamb 'bacon', but this is the most flavorful brand we've ever used. My 10-year old never even tried beef bacon until Grow and Behold, and now he's hooked. He also refuses to try any other brand. I've also had friends who are chefs swear by it. My only caveat: buy the thick cut. So worth it.
We switched over to thick sliced beef fry and never looked back! Obviously, you get less pieces than the thin slice but they are much more enjoyable and much easier to cook. G&B has also gotten better with their spice levels for the beef fry. At first it was a little heavy handed on the spice but more recent batches have been more judicious on the spice which has been much more pleasant. All around this is a great breakfast treat to go with our eggs!
My family can't get enough of the caramelized beef bacon I make with the thick cut - three packages can go in one sitting. Also enjoy the thin cut to cook with in savory tarts. This is the best beef bacon out there by far!
How Many Pieces Will I Receive?
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packages. Most packages contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packages will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packages of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
For red meat items and multi-pack poultry items, vacuum-sealed packages may be packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packages you'd like in the box, you'll make that selection under "Customize Your Order." Then you'll choose your preferred weight (that is, the combined weight of all the the packages in that box.) If only one choice is showing in a green box, you do not need to make any selection.
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packages, ~1.1 lb, and the price shows $39.99.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packages of lamb chops inside.
Each package will contain 2 lamb chops. You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. We always try to pack similar-sized items, but you may find that some chops are slightly larger and some are slightly smaller.
How Much Does It Weigh?
We use weight ranges in order to keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable for items with variable weights (for example steaks. Packages of deli meats which are not sold by weight range as we can pack them by exact weight). The ranges are as small as practically possible to minimize the variation between the Selected Weight and the actual weght you receive. Because of this, if the price per pound is shown as "price/lb*", the *" indicates that it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with the selected weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the potential weight variance for selected weights on our site:
|Selected Weight||Potential Weight Variance|
|under ~0.95 lb||+/- 0.15 lb|
|~1 lb to ~3.9 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~4 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.5 lb||over ~10 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.75 lb or as little as 1.25 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~5 lb could weigh as much as 5.5 lb or as little as 4.5 lb
We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. Sometimes you will receive a bit more than the listed weight, and sometimes a bit less. Our customers find that on average they receive what they are expecting. But if you find that your actual weights in an order are all below the listed average, please snap a picture of the weight labels and send it over to us, and we'll be happy to make things right.
