How To Make Perfect Bacon Every Time

How To Make Perfect Bacon Every Time

Here’s a great tip on how to make perfect bacon every single time. Often, there are two basic problems that we must pay attention to and address when cooking: The grease splatters, and the bacon doesn’t cook evenly and gets crispy at the risk of burning it. Of course, most of us (especially here at Bacon Meals) are good enough with bacon to navigate these simple issues… but there’s a great way to solve both problems before they even start as an issue: adding water.

It sounds a bit odd, but adding water actually does some fascinating things, as explained by America’s Test Kitchen in the video below

Adding the water renders the fat, so there is a lot less splattering. More importantly, the technique produces a browned and crisp-edged slice without the risk of burned bacon. Tender and a little chewy, this bacon ends up perfect because it doesn’t crumble when you spear it with a fork; It’s pliable like thick-cut bacon, but with the crispness you would expect from the usual thin slices.

There’s no need to completely cover the bacon with water though, since it takes a long time for that much water to boil off. It’s possible that a small amount of water will be effective as well, so be sure to just experiment a little bit with what works best for you. If you want to try less water, then once the bacon is in the pan, add just enough water to completely coat the bottom of the pan and cook over medium-high heat until the water has evaporated. Reduce the heat to medium and cook the bacon until crisp. It’ll turn out great! Then you can use your new awesome bacon with any of the recipes we have here at Bacon Meals, to make it just that much better! Woot!
