The cleanest high quality bacon on the market! This bacon is uncured in an all-natural process using only salt and 100% natural spices for 10 days. No nitrates, nitrites, no curing salts, no celery, no sugars, no artificial ingredients, no nasties. Naturally smoked for 2 hours using natural hickory smoke. Gluten-free, lactose-free, free of preservatives and coloring agents. The result is amazingly good bacon that you can enjoy with your whole family. We only use the belly of pork that we source from ethical farms that raise pigs free-range and never treat the pigs with growth-hormones or antibiotics. Strictly no factory-farming.
Bacon from the pork belly is the typical American style bacon that crisps up and shrinks. The pork belly has a relative high-fat content - the juices are what make our bacon so succulent.
Pre-sliced bacon. The thickness is 6mm which is your average bacon thickness used for burgers or breakfast. Cook on high heat without adding any oil in the frypan. Due to the high-fat content of the pork belly, the slices will shrink in size and crisp up. Best suited for a family breakfast, as a burger topping, to wrap around asparagus or to wrap a filet mignon steak. High quality bacon - taste the difference. See the cooking instructions below.

Defrost the pack of bacon in a bowl of water (less than 1 hour) or in the fridge overnight.
One pack is enough for 3-4 persons depending on the recipe. 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 have a splatter screen at hand, use it.
The pork belly 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 American style bacon. Turn them once to have a crispy surface on both sides.
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".
Thick bacon slices are very versatile, you can cut them into small pieces prior to cooking and cook them together with scrambled eggs or use as pizza or salad topping.
Bacon bits and scrambled eggs go well together and are a wholesome breakfast. All free of nasties. We also offer farm-fresh free-range eggs.
Enjoy crispy bacon. All-natural - without sugar - without nasties and free-range pork.
I used to drive 2 hours to Misawa to buy bacon. This thick sliced bacon is the best I've had in Japan! I'm a regular!
Excellent tasting bacon!
The thickness is the key.
Translated from Japanese: I’ve ordered this bacon countless times now. It’s the most flavorful bacon I have ever had, and additionally it’s pasture-raised, animal welfare-conscious, and free of unnatural ingredients. Once I found out that this is what real bacon tastes like, I can no longer eat supermarket bacon, even the additive-free ones. If you use it for breakfast, half a slice per person is enough to satisfy you because it’s so flavorful, thick, and satisfying, and if you use it for pasta, it turns you into a chef!
The Canadian-style bacon is also very tasty, so I buy different kinds depending on my mood.
I was extremely happy with the pleasant aroma and taste. the bacon cooked evenly and caramelized to a golden brown. It was a good addition to many dishes, I especially enjoyed it on cheeseburgers, bacon and egg sandwiches coupled with Asparagus.
