Product Description

  • Unsmoked, dry cured rindless, thick cut back bacon rashers.
  • Our Tesco Finest* dry cure bacon comes from British pigs, which give tasty, succulent pork. The Tesco Finest pork comes from producers inspected to Red Tractor welfare standards. 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.

Not impressed

1 stars

I have bought this bacon a few times and it has been very tasty and no white stuff coming out of it. The last time I bought it, it was very fatty and to be honest I was so annoyed about the amount of fat that I weighed it. After trimming most of the fat off I weighed it and was appalled that the fat weighed 87 grams. Just to put this into perspective the pack weighs 240 grams so a third of it was FAT. Not impressed.

I won't buy this again

1 stars

Really disappointed with this. It wasn't very thick, it gave off lots of water and didn't taste very nice, Nothing fine about it at all.

So salty

Cut the salt!

2 stars

It's everything I look for in a bacon - EXCEPT for the salt! Not only are we being urged to cut our salt intake but this level seems to be way beyond what might now be considered acceptable. It's not just that it is too much. It's overwhelming, adding nothing to the flavour whilst rendering the bacon barely edible. Such a shame. I was looking forward to that.
