Beef Bacon is bacon… made out of beef. We take the Boneless Short Ribs from our beef, cure them in a salt and sugar mixture, then smoke them over local cherry wood. Prior to curing, we dry age the beef, leading to a concentrated flavor unlike anything you have ever tasted.
Our Beef Bacon comes from the lower rib section of the cattle. This section, otherwise known as the short plate, is cured, smoked, and aged to perfection. (Our cure does contain some sodium nitrate. See our FAQs for more information.)
Cook Beef Bacon just like you would Pork Bacon. We suggest baking it in a 350 degree oven for 12 to 20 minutes. We always say once you can smell bacon, stand by the oven because it is almost done.
Not just a piece of meat
Great flavor starts in the field. At Porter Road, we partner with farmers who raise their animals on pasture, for a difference you can taste.Learn more about our process
