…is not my new favorite bacon.
Don’t get me wrong here, it tastes like bacon (with sort of a smoky beef jerky undertone – bacon and beef jerky, honestly if you’re going to kill yourself, you could do worse), it feels like bacon, it smells like bacon. It is bacon, but made from a cow instead of a pig. It's seems to be lower in fat – but I seriously doubt that it’s any better for you than pig bacon in any way whatsoever.
It’s not bad, I like it, but it will never replace pig bacon as undisputed king of crispy fried fat.
I would rate beef bacon higher than bacon made from any kind of fowl, higher than both turkey and ostrich bacon certainly.
I would rate it way higher than moose bacon, which is more like the aforementioned beef jerky since moose is pretty deficit in the fat department.
I would certain place it on the bacon scale far, far above porcupine bacon (don’t ask) and fried muktak - sort of a bacon made from whale or seal blubber (think the texture of three day old dog shit that has dried in the sun with a robust taste like fermented fish heads and polar bear ass).
And it beats the ever living hell out of tofu bacon – though technically it is tofu bacon, it’s just that the soy beans have been processed through an extra step.
Be it bacon, ham, sausage, or a chop - here at Stonekettle Station, the pig is still the undisputed champion of the breakfast meats.
What’s your favorite breakfast meat? Or meat-like substitute?
