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. 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.
  • Pack size: 240g



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

Prepared from 105g of Pork per 100g of Bacon.

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.

I find that this drycure bacon is worth paying a little extra for. The lower water content makes it easier to fry until the edges are crispy, and after cooking you end up with more product compared with traditionally cured bacon, because you haven't had to boil so much of the curing brine away.

Very often very fatty with fat concealed beneath the label. Disappointed that this bacon is branded as Finest.
