Nice tasting bacon but very fatty. Have given this bacon a try a few times as it is meant to be Tesco Finest, but no, too fatty and end up losing a good piece of each rasher by the time the fat is cut off. Disappointing overall.
'Worst dry cure bacon i have ever had - horribe'
Really awful bacon. Never had dry cure bacon so bad. Horrible white gunge came out when frying, unpleasant smell when being cooked. fat inedible, stayed chewy and no flavour. All in all the worst dry cure bacon I have ever had. I will not buy this again ... Does not even deserve one star!
Awful quality, am sure it’s not dry cured at all.
Awful quality, am sure it’s not dry cured at all. When cooked creamy water exudes from the rashers and goes black. My experience of decent dry cured bacon (not Tesco’s) cooks with ought this problem. Needs sorting out!!
didn't give off lots of white goo when cooked, and
didn't give off lots of white goo when cooked, and had a nice clean taste
I bought this last week primary because it was British bacon.Very disappointed with it as just so much fat on the rashers, had to cut of a good quarter. But I did grill it and it does have a nice flavour.
Drain well before serving
Shallow Fry Instructions: For best results, pan fry. Fry in a little oil for 3-5 minutes, turning occasionally. Drain well before serving..... YOU CERTAINLY DO HAVE TO >> Drain well before serving AND GET RID OF THE WHITE GUNGY STUFF
Not dry cured
This used to be dry cured, I used to cook the bacon first and the eggs after, in the same frying pan, in the fat that was left from the bacon. Now there's no fat, just a red sticky residue on the frying pan and the same white spongy stuff coming out of bacon , just like water cured bacon. What happened ? I don't mind paying more but it has to be what it says on the package . Bring the quality back or change the name and lower the price.
Terrible bacon,very thin and by the time the bacon has a bit of colour its like cardboard.What is so fine about this?
I can't beleive it's not wet cure.
I think the supplier or production process must have changed recently. Frying it in a pan and so much white liquid comes out, I find it hard to believe it is actually a dry cure bacon. It used to be pretty good, but the most recent packs I've bought have been terrible. Seriously wondering if someone put wet cure into the packet. Not good bacon by any stretch of the word.
