About this product
You be the butcher! Cut your beef bacon however you like it from this naturally-cured, fully-cooked beef belly. We love to add this to a carving station along side other roasts, pastrami, etc. You can also tuck it away in your fridge and cut slices as needed -- for your breakfast, burger, salad or more. Beef Bacon is made from the plate, or belly, of our Black Angus cattle, which graze on pasture in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States, where they enjoy a carefully balanced diet of grass, forage crops and hay that never includes hormones or growth promoting antibiotics. Beef bacon is supposed to be very marbled, so don't be surprised when you see a lot of fat! It has a ton of flavor, so if you like, save it to add flavor to soups or stews, use it to fry up potatoes.
Basic Cooking Technique:
For a carving station, or to serve whole: Reheat by steaming in a tightly covered in pan with a little liquid at 250F (you want it to steam, not dry out, and keep the heat low enough so it stays tender) -- or place the whole slab on top of your chulent.
To cut your own strips of Beef Bacon on demand, simply slice off the desired amount and thickness, then fry in a pan until crisp.
Storage and Handling:
The cooked slab will last in the original package for a couple of weeks in the fridge. Once opened, it should be wrapped tightly and stored in the fridge for a week, or just returned to the freezer.

This beef bacon was superb. We used it for good old fashioned bacon and eggs, bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwiches, and my favorite - coq au vin. No, is doesn't taste exactly like bacon (from what I remember from 30 years ago) but it does taste delicious. I highly recommend it.
Absolutely delicious and a breeze to make.
Packs & Weights
Our frozen meats are packaged in vacuum-sealed packs. Most packs contain one piece (ie, one Brisket). Some packs will contain two pieces (ie, Lamb Chops). Packs of smaller items, such as Chicken Wings or Pepper Steak, will contain multiple pieces.
These vacuum-sealed packs are generally packed in a cardboard box. If there is an option to choose how many packs you'd like in the box, you'll make that choice under "Number of Packs". Then you'll choose the total weight of the box (that is, the combined weight of all the the packs in that box).
Example: Lamb Chops
Let's say you're ordering Lamb Chops and you select the following:
You've chosen: 2 packs, ~1.9lbs, and the price shows as $60.78.
You’ll receive 1 box, with 2 packs of lamb chops inside. The whole thing will weigh approximately ~1.9lbs and will cost $60.78.
Each pack will contain 2 lamb chops, and weigh approximately .95lbs.
You’ll have 4 lamb chops in total. Each will weigh approximately .475lbs (note that one may be slightly larger and one slightly smaller).
Weight Ranges & Prices
To keep our fulfillment system practical and manageable, products with variable weights are sold in a weight range (this includes most frozen meats, with the exception of deli meats, sausages and beef jerky). We keep the ranges as small as practically possible to minimize the variation you might receive. If a price/lb is shown with a *, it is an estimate for comparison purposes only, since the price associated with each weight is the price for all items within that weight range.
This chart shows the weight ranges for all our products:
