Learn more about slab bacon

With slab bacon, you can slice it how you like it – thick, ultra-thin, or somewhere in between. Think of it as bespoke bacon.

That freedom allows you to get creative in the kitchen. Cut bacon into lardons – a French term for matchstick strips - and use them on frisée salad, tarte flambée, in carbonara, or for soups of all kinds.

In fact, you can begin soups and braises by rendering a slice of slab bacon (think coq au vin, beef bourguignon), which will impart smoky flavor and just enough bacon fat to get things going. And baked beans are just crying out for chunks of slab bacon.

The best part is that slab bacon freezes beautifully, so just portion it out in vacuum-sealed bags and draw on your bacon stores for months to come. You will never be caught without bacon again.

Another approach is to sous-vide

  • We recommend repackaging the slab bacon and sous-viding it plain or by adding aromatics such as crushed garlic and thyme.
  • Set your sous-vide for 145°F.
  • Then place your package of slab bacon in the circulator and sous-vide for at least 10 hours.
  • Allow the bacon to cool slightly.
  • Then remove it from the package, pat dry with a paper towel, and slice into ½"-1" slices.
  • In a non-stick pan heated to medium, place the cut sides down and brown on both sides until heated through.
  • The final result is a tender, confit-like texture in the middle, a crisp outer rim from the pan, and a prominent yet not overpowering smokiness from the applewood.
