Bacon

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Bacon

Post by David Stearn » Thu Mar 29, 2018 9:30 am

Just because every forum deserves a thread on bacon.

Bacon is coming round and having its day. Once considered vice its now being given new life as the secret to health. Some people are eating nothing but protein and greens and are reversing chronic conditions and losing a lot of weight in the process. Some of these people are using predominantly bacon as their protein, X 2 lbs. a day.

I'm tempted to try.

So lets talk aoot it, where do you get your bacon, how much do you pay, how do you like to eat it, and anything else related to bacon, post that shit here.

I like to screen my bacon grease and use it to fry things. I think in a way, I like my grease as much as the bacon itself. When my grease jar is geting low, I have to cook another slab.

I have cooked a turkey and wrapped it in bacon. I have minced it in with lean beef for the best hamburgers. I like it with me eggs of course.

What about you?

The Doctor will see you now.

Damn! You really want access to the dark side, don't you. Now start a thread about pizza and the General will definitely let you in!

Smokey dah Boar's bacon is the best available in Cambodia in my opinion.

But If you're an American and prefer streaky bacon, I can't help sorry.

I now add water to my bacon when I cook it. It basically boils it a bit, loosens it all up, and then when the water steams off, the rest gets fried really crispy. I think its the least greasy too. I also get all that great grease for using with other things. Like now, I am going to fry up some boiled potatoes and onions in some bacon grease.

Now about that pizza thread. I know a bit about that too. I actually make my own and freeze pieces, and then guess what? I fry them on low heat in bacon grease, haha.

I love bacon cause it's got lots of sodium nitrate in it.

'Although there is a correlation, the FDA has not ruled processed meats as too dangerous to consume. What can be agreed upon is it is best to limit consumption.'

I've cut it down to a kilo a week, based on that advice.
