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.
Crisp strips of thin beef bacon make a great burger topper, or wrap them around a turkey breast to create a flavorful, crispy skin while it roasts. 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

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!
We love this item. Its great on top of Burgers, wrapped around vegetables like asparagus and chopped on top of dishes like Brussels Sprouts, salads, mashed potatoes, etc...FYI...the fat makes a great dressing as well.
As you might guess I'm a convert to Judaism so I legit grew up on the kind of bacon that I have not eaten for nearly 30 years. But like Pavlov's dog every time my non-Jewish neighbors cooked aforementioned bacon I salivated in a most undignified way just the momentary scent would set me off! I never banged on their door and said 'Your bacon or your life!!!' But still....I always thought if I ever fell off the derech (hashv'shalom) it would be because a McDonald's Egg McMuffin was waved before my nose. I comforted myself with the thought that in the limot ha mashiach all non-kosher food would have an equivalent was sort of a way to pull my nose and salivary glands back to their proper role in life.
IY"H This beef bacon might be part of the First Flowering of our Redemption.
So now I discover Grow and Behold perfectly Kosher beef bacon and I am here to proclaim it's way better than perfect and way better than the other stuff. Be sure to save the fat renderings and add in small 1/4 teaspoonfuls to recipes whenever extra flavor is needed. Also little bits of crumbled beef bacon are great in salads, or as an addition to pasta, or (of course) with AM eggs.
I do not know how I survived without this bacon in my life but I'm so glad I have it now. Buy more than you think you need because it will disappear as fast as you can cook it

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!
This is the best bacon I've ever tasted. My daughter is a picky eater, but she can't get enough of this bacon. I'm patiently waiting on the slab to be restock.
I love a BLT (made kosher with beef bacon) when the tomatoes are in season, so this makes my summer special!
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:
|less than 0.99lb||0.05lb|
|1lb - 2.19lb||0.1lb|
|2.2lb - 2.74lb||0.30lb|
|2.75lb - 10.24lb||0.25lb|
