BACON! and Jalapeño BACON!

Not a fancy recipe or anything but I had to share this! Awesome way to cook bacon that turns out delicious every time. I was skeptical when I first saw the video, but it is fantastic!!


* sub all or some of the water with up to 1 cup liquid from a jar of pickled Jalapeños with a few rings thrown in for good measure!

In a large pan lay out your bacon slices,

(if doing your jalapenos, add them here, I also add some fresh ground black pepper!) add water until the slices are just covered.

Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce heat to medium high , cook until the water completely burns off.

Reduce heat a bit more(medium low-medium) and continue cooking to your desired crispiness.

Alternately (and this works better for the Jalapeno Bacon due to the stickiness of the jalapeno residue) remove from the pan after the water has boiled away and place on a foil lined broiling tray. Bake at 350 degrees until your desired crispness.

This makes for awesome tender bacon slices that are crisp on the outside. I have been using this method and cooking them until the water just burns off, then when they are cool enough to handle wrapping them around things like steak, pork or chicken. Then when I bake or grill the meat, the bacon is done to perfection too!
