Product Description

  • Oak and beech smoked, dry cured rindless streaky bacon rashers.
  • Our Tesco finest* dry cure bacon comes from British outdoor bred pigs which give tasty, succulent pork. It was developed for us by experts who first began dry curing pork in Waberthwaite, Cumbria back in 1828. Nearly 200 years later, it’s still cured by hand following the same method to bring out the rich flavour before air drying for a meaty texture.
  • *Traditionally dry cured by hand for a meaty texture and rich flavour then smoked with oak and beech chips.
  • Pack size: 240g

Too salty

3 stars

This used to be delicious and certainly deserved the 'finest' label. Unfortunately the last few packs we've had all that can be tasted is salt. I'm sticking with it and keeping my fingers crossed that it is just a temporary blip. :-(

Excellent

5 stars

Excellent flavour, good pack size, definitely added to favourites. Note that altogh this is listed just as "Smoked" it is, in fact, oak and beech smoked and father special,

Truly the finest.

5 stars

This really is the best streaky bacon you can buy. I have tried many but this has the best flavour, it is cut to just the right thickness and it crisps up lovely.

Have tried lots of other streaky bacons... but non

5 stars

Have tried lots of other streaky bacons... but none come close to this. Doesn't produce a lot of liquid when cooking, and turns into a tasty crispy addition to my cooked breakfast or bacon sarnie.

CHEW CHEW CHEW

1 stars

Like rubber. I know how to cook streaky bacon. This bacon was Chew chew chew. This was NOT like M & S. Will not buy it again. However I shall put the remaining packet, which is now in the freezer on my Turkey at Christmas.

Changed from 22 rashers to 16

3 stars

Used to buy this a lot but now they have sliced the rashers thicker so now there is only 16 instead of the old 22. I like my rashers thinner , especially when there is quite a lot of fat on the rashers.
