Product Description

  • Oak and beech smoked, dry cured pancetta rashers.
  • Our Tesco Finest* dry cure bacon comes from British outdoor bred pigs, which give tasty, succulent pork. This pork comes from farms inspected to RSPCA welfare standards by the RSPCA's independently certified farm assurance scheme. Our traditional dry cure was developed for us by experts who first began curing 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: 180G



Pork, Salt, Sugar, Preservatives (Sodium Nitrite, Sodium Nitrate), Antioxidant (Sodium Ascorbate).

Great value and versatile

Great on its own with a poached egg or made for wrapping around stuffed chicken fillets. Great value and I buy it every week.

Bacon, not pancetta.

1 stars

This is dry cured English bacon and has absolutely no similarity to real pancetta whatsoever.

Great taste and British!

5 stars

When cooking it smelled too smokey but when eating it we thought it was fabulous. British pork as well!

Indoor bred Pork and not RSPCA assured

2 stars

Unfortunately, I didn't read before I ordered online 'Due to recent rising high demand, we also source British Indoor Farmed Pork and not RSPCA Assured Outdoor Bred Pork for a limited period of time.'

Appalling selection by Tesco on my behalf !

1 stars

This was most disappointing and annoying. It bears no resemblance to the 'advertised on the website' substance because there is so very much more fat than anything else that my pack was virtually white. This is exactly the reason that I would, if it were remotely possible, prefer to do my own shopping. I think this was foisted on me because no other shopper would have bought it. Shameful !!

I use this all the time. I have it fried for breakfast , use it for wrapping meat or fish to bake. It doesn't replace lardons. Just like I buy in Italy......Excellent product

1 stars

When Tesco first produced this in association with RB Woodhall it was good. BUT the most recent packets I bought contained meat sliced paper thin (obviously weighs less) which was completely tasteless apart from a hint of fish. I wish Tesco would stop producing its own mediocre versions of good products. This happens with so many items. Do not buy this rubbish.
