Here’s a look at the Aussie Bacon that we make on-site:
Traditional Australian Wood Smoked Bacon
Paul makes this shortcut style bacon by letting the pork loins sit in brine, rather than injecting them. Most bacon you might find around (#maynotbeaussiebacon) will be injected with brine to increase moisture in the product to save the weight of the product after it is cooked. Unfortunately if it contains too much water, it will affect your cooking as this is the first thing that will come out and then your bacon could end up broiled rather than nicely fried.
Paul says good things take time, and using this traditional method takes about a week from start to finish. Try it for yourself next time your in the shop, or you can also order online here.
A great way to cook this one up other than for Breakfast? Perfectly paired with our Beef Burgers for a great Aussie Beef and Bacon Burger. Try these ideas too:
Dry Cured Wood Smoked Belly Bacon
This is a Gold Medal Award Winning Bacon! Awarded a top prize at the Australian Food Awards in 2018, it has become a popular style with our customers. This Belly Bacon, or Streaky Bacon as it’s also known is great for that crispy cooked bacon, the popular style in North America.
There’s a process involved in cooking up this bacon, take a look at the video to see how Paul makes this from scratch, right here on-site. His favourite way to eat it? For breakfast of course, with eggs and sausages. Here’s a few other ideas:
