About this product
You be the butcher! Cut your lamb bacon however you like it from this naturally-cured, fully-cooked lamb 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. Our Lamb Bacon is made from the richly marbled bellies of our Shenandoah valley pastured lamb, which are naturally cured and then smoked.
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 Lamb 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.
Ingredients: Lamb, Water, Sea Salt, Sugar, Honey, Cherry Powder, Celery Powder, Spices, Smoke Flavor, Garlic.
This product is shipped frozen and will arrive frozen or refrigerated.

I’m almost giddy , I was hesitant about ordering. I’m more than satisfied with my purchase . Thank you for providing a quality product , and giving me the ability to create a flavor filled bridge to loved ones long gone.
This is the best form of bacon I’ve never had! Hands down. It’s one of those foods that is so good you want to cry when you begin to eat it. Tender and delicious and so easy to hear up and serve immediately. I will for sure be buying more.
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||+/- 0.05 lb|
|~1 lb to ~2.1 lb||+/- 0.1 lb|
|~2.2 lb to ~2.7 lb||+/- 0.3 lb|
|~2.9 lb to ~10 lb||+/- 0.25 lb|
|~10.5 lb to ~19.5 lb||+/- 0.5 lb|
|over ~20 lb||+/- 1 lb|
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~1.5 lb could weigh as much as 1.6 lb or as little as 1.4 lb
- An item with a Selected Weight of ~3 lb could weigh as much as 3.25 lb or as little as 2.75 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.
