Product Description

  • Unsmoked, dry cured rindless back bacon 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.

Too salty

1 stars

Way too salty to the point where it’s unpleasant to eat

I buy this “dry cured” bacon often. Sadly the last two packs have left that white, for want of a better word, scum, left in the frying pan that proper dry cured doesn’t. So obviously not dry cured!!

Lovely bacon!

5 stars

It's rather difficult to imagine how others cook their bacon, but I never have any issues with either water or fat in the frying pan. It cooks and tastes lovely, and 'browns' nicely on the edges. The aroma is 'heaven', don't change anything!

sometimes this product has too much fat. Quality

If this was Finest I would hate to think what the regular bacon is like! This was thin, tasteless and just awful!!

Please take note

It seems after reading all reviews covering the Bacon range that Tesco have; the majority of people have a real big issue with the fact that the all the range is Salty, tasteless and watery when cooked. Thin or thick it doesn’t matter; it still produces a salty watery gunk in the pan when fried. I think it’s time Tesco product specialist instigates a radical change in how the bacon is cured, to ensure it meets the consumer/ customers needs. Please take note.

This is really good - not thin and wet. Tasty.
