Dry cured bacon

Post by chiltern »

Is there anywhere in Phnom Penh where you can buy real bacon?. I am not talking about the wafer thin strips of anaemic fat that pretend to be bacon which ooze a white scum when cooked. I am looking for dry cured thick rashers of streaky or back bacon which leave the pan not looking as if they were cooked in a snow storm. I have tried Dan Meats in the past but was disappointed with the results although to be fair they were the best so far.

Just thought l would give my search another try.

Ahhh yes - well spotted.. I vaguely remember now, as i went for some meat and got waylaid by his Kampot Cider.

I bought a joint for cutting bacon slices now I remember, through the haze...

I went in the afternoon for a quick buy, but left around 10pm.

Thanks PSD-Kiwi - I do stand corrected..

I have a friend in Goa who cures his own bacon, he buys some good belly pork and does it at home. You can google or u tube to find out the various methods, it tastes lovely !

I frequently do that when l am back in the UK although my village butcher does sell very good bacon. I have considered that here but have yet to find a decent bit of belly which is thick enough and not 80% fat

Hmm, I wasn't too keen on eating bacon in Goa:

I like Strokesy's bacon.
