Pork Bacon Ends
With these small bacon chunks you can sneak the smokey, savory flavor of our pasture-raised pork bacon into pretty much any dish. Add them to your carbonara in place of (or in addition to) pancetta, braise some greens, or crisp up lardon to make your salads a bit more enticing.
Each pack of Bacon Ends includes small pieces of our Pork (Belly) Bacon, Jowl, Back and Ham Bacons which are cured with sugar, salt, and sodium nitrate before smoking. There's a lot of discussion about the use of sodium nitrate, a natural salt and antioxidant, that has been used to cure meat for thousands of years. Sodium Nitrate is a natural occurring chemical compound that is found in water, soil, plants, and our own bodies. We use sodium nitrates to help preserve our cured products, so that you can feel extra good about the food you eat.
While these small bacon chunks can be used in a variety of dishes, our favorite application is in braised greens. We are southern, after all.
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
