Horizon Farms proudly presents Japan's first all-natural, sugar-free, 100% grass-fed beef pastrami bacon. This took us a long time of experimenting and many costly batches.
This pastrami bacon made from the navel brisket (beef belly) is cured for two weeks in an all-natural curing process using only natural spices without the use of nitrates or curing salts. Then smoked for a duration of 3 hours using natural hickory smoke. Nope, no sugars ever. The result is amazingly good beef pastrami bacon that you can enjoy with your whole family. Yes, beef pastrami bacon has a slightly more chewy bite compared to pork bacon.
We use directly and freshly imported - never frozen 100% grass-fed beef navel brisket from Australia. The beef is from cows that are all year pasture-raised without growth hormones or antibiotics. We say it again: our bacon comes free of preservatives, additives, gluten, lactose, MSG, fillers, sugar, white sugar, brown sugar, honey powder, agave, turbinado sugar, nitrates, flavor or color enhancers, or any artificial ingredients or nasties, just family farm produced, ethically raised high-quality 100% grass-fed beef and top-quality natural spices from around the world. Cured for 2 weeks, smoked, sliced, and blast frozen - all made in Japan. Hands down, this the cleanest beef bacon you can lay hands on in Japan. A difference in quality you can taste.
Each pack contains 300g worth of pre-sliced bacon. The thickness is 2mm which is your average bacon thickness. Cook on high heat without adding any oil to the frypan. Due to the high-fat content of the navel brisket, when cooked on very high heat the slices will shrink in size and crisp up - a welcomed outcome. Best suited for a family breakfast, or as a family snack - even for the kids. While testing the product we thought this makes great beef jerky as well. See the cooking instructions below.

Export and Processing
Beef is directly imported from Australia to Japan by Horizon Farms, bacon is then locally processed in Japan, and flash-frozen for freshness and longevity.
Defrost the pack of bacon in a bowl of water (less than 1 hour) or in the fridge overnight.
One pack is enough for 4 persons. Once opened you can leave the pack in the fridge for up to 2 more days. Please do not refreeze again for quality reasons.
Prepare a frying-pan to high heat and place the bacon slices without additional oil or butter into the frying pan. If you're using a cast-iron skillet add a tiny amount of butter before cooking the first slices.
The beef navel brisket that we use for the bacon is relatively high in fat and it will show during cooking. The bacon will also shrink in size and become crispy - the very characteristics of classic bacon. Turn them at least twice to have a crispy surface on all sides.
If you have a splatter screen at hand, use it.
Take off the bacon from the heat once crispy brown. Place on a kitchen paper towel for a while to "drain the bacon from the grease".
The stronger the heat the more crispy they will become. Remove at desired crispiness.
Enjoy crispy and safe beef bacon. All-natural - without sugar - without nasties and 100% grass-fed beef - no growth-promoting hormones or antibiotics used. This beef bacon makes a great beef snack or home-made beef jerky. Simply dry at room temperature and slightly heat up in the toaster oven before snacking!
Nothing beats these burgers - and I had many in my life. Thank you for bringing quality products to Japan.
Nothing but delicious.
Translated from Japanese: Arrived after two days.
Grilled one (patty) in a frypan.
Used the second patty to break it into pieces for minced beef.
There’s no artificial additives
Translated from Japanese: It’s meat of really good quality that is very delicious when you grill it with only salt and pepper! That’s what my children say.
It’s relieving that the meat is simple and organic.
Translated from Japanese: I baked them in the oven together with vegetables, and after putting melting cheese and tomato on top, I turned the heat up for a few minutes. I also lightly put salt on top. It was a burger that works well with simple seasoning, has a rich flavor and chewy texture. Even though it’s a hamburger, the meat is amazingly firm and was very delicious.
I think I will order again.
Translated from Japanese: This is our go-to store. The meat is really delicious with just salt. I was impressed the first time I had it and thought “this kind of delicious meat exists?” Once I’m running out of them, I will order again.
Translated from Japanese: I was looking for sugar-free, additive-free bacon and found it here. It's delicious, with a nice salty taste. It's a little inconvenient for a small family because it comes in one bag of 300 grams, but a 100 gram unit would be helpful.
Stocking up on them
Translated from Japanese: The flavor and the texture, all in all, the best bacon. They’re delicious when they’re crunchy. if you cook them on one side until the oil seeps through and turn them around, you can use the same frypan to quickly make eggs at the same time, which I really like. Without getting burned, the fat turned half transparent, which made it look like it had lots of collagen, which is a good thing!
I will stock up on them.
All-time best bacon!
Translated from Japanese: Smoked with garlic and salt and pepper, it was the best.
Usual bacon has sugar in it and there’s no information on the meat’s origin, so I had the feeling of not really liking it, but this bacon saved me.
Neither sugar nor other additives were used, the bacon is made out of real meat. I’m really thankful for this!
This is with no doubt the best bacon I’ve ever eaten. Because frozen products are convenient, I want to always have some in stock!
Of course, I will order again.
Translated from Japanese: When you cook it, it becomes really crispy and with pepper on top it was really delicious. Because there was no sugar used, I think the flavor was really clear. I’m also glad about the simple packaging. I was looking for meat where the animals’ environment was taken into consideration and that’s how I ended up here. I haven’t had anything else but this bacon yet, but I’m looking forward to the other products.
Translated from Japanese: Reaaaally delicious. I ate the bacon with eggs. It seems to be addicting.
Translated from Japanese: I cooked them in a frypan and then put them into a lentil stew. Without adding salt to the lentils, I ate it together and the perfect degree of spiciness was amazing.
Because the skin is thick, it’s very elastic, so there might be people who can’t bite through it with their teeth (I took a big bite). But if you properly use a knife and fork, you can eat with no problems. It might be better to cook the sausages on low flame until the skin is slightly burned. I didn’t cook them the way you can see them in the pictures on the website.
I will order again!
Translated from Japanese: Perfect degree of spiciness. For me, the saltiness was a little too much.
The outside is crispy! The inside meaty!
Translated from Japanese: Because of corona, I can’t go out, so I think having a BBQ can be fun. Spicy sausages and beer, there’s no better combination. The outside is crispy, there’s a prickling sound when you bite into them and the inside is juicy. Delicious~! These are big, filling sausages that are perfectly meaty. I want to try country style sausages next!
Translated from Japanese: For those who love meat. The herbs and the Italian flavor are amazing, it made me think “This is awesome!” I might order them again.
They don’t go well with spaghetti sauces
Translated from Japanese: They're delicious, but the seasoning is lacking. It’s not the spiciness, but the Italian spices that are missing.
Coming from the west one tends to do without when it comes to certain traditional foods. This is the best breakfast sausage I have tasted in years. The bonus is that you can make a perfectly sized patty out of two sausages for the perfect egg and sausage sandwich.
I will be ordering again!
They’re easy to eat because they’re skinless! The herbal scent is amazing!
Translated from Japanese: They’re naturally without skin, but these are soft and easy to eat. It has just the right amount of salt and you can smell the herbs well. At times when you don’t want to eat more than two sausages, if you just cut open the package, you can conveniently separate them in their frozen state.
Without oil, I slowly cooked them with their own oils and eggs. It was extremely delicious!
I want to stock up on them in my freezer.
I need to buy a bigger freezer!!!
Translated from Japanese: It was delicious. Although these kind of sausages are usually very salty, these were just right.
Delicious product! Easy to make a quick and tasty meal!
Better than anything I found in the supermarkets
I was lucky enough to try these earlier and they were fantastic. Both variants are really excellent better than anything you can find in your supermarket.
