Surprisingly delicious

Translated from Japanese: The natural flavor of the pork itself and the smoked flavor are exquisite and really delicious. I received thick slices, but the balance of the spices suit thin slices better.

The texture is like ham. It tastes very meaty. The spices are just right.

All-Natural Sugar-Free Free-Range Pork Canadian Style Bacon (300g)

Horizon Farms

Description

Horizon Farms proudly presents what is probably Japan's first all-natural, sugar-free, free-range, smoked pork bacon collection. This took us a year of experimenting and many costly batches. This is the "Canadian" style bacon which is made from the pork loin as opposed to the "American" style bacon which is made from the pork belly.

This "Canadian" style bacon is cured for two weeks in an all-natural curing process using only natural spices. Absolutely no nitrates added, no curing salts, no celery. Then smoked for a duration of 2 hours using natural hickory smoke. Nope, no sugars ever. The result is amazingly good bacon that you can enjoy with the whole family. 

We use the pork loin which has a great and balanced fat to meat ratio. The pork comes from Hokkaido which is free-range pork and completely free of growth hormones and 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 pork 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 might be the cleanest bacon available. A difference in quality you can taste. If you are on a Keto diet, this is what you have been looking for. Read more about the farm below.

Each pack contains 300g worth of pre-sliced bacon. The thickness is 2mm which is your average bacon thickness used for burgers or breakfast. Cook on high heat without adding any oil in the frypan. Please let the bacon cook in its own juices, this is where all the flavor is. Due to the high-fat content, the slices will shrink in size and crisp up. Best suited for a family breakfast, as a burger topping or in your salad. See the cooking instructions below.

Happy as a pig in mud. Bathing in the nearby river during summer and playing around on the snowfields in winter - that's the happy life of the pigs on the family-owned El Paso Ranch in Hokkaido that are raised completely free-range in the Tokachi area. And when we say free range we mean the real deal free-range. Spring, summer, autumn and winter - 24 hours, all year free-roaming on 30 hectares (75 acres) of land. The pigs are a slow and naturally grown British Camborough breed. They are fed a large variety of feed mixes that contain all kinds of grains, corn, soybeans, and other vegetables and farm produce (pigs can’t survive only on grass, so there won't be grass-fed pork any time soon). Newborn stay in a shelter together with their mother until they learn how to take care of themselves. No tail clipping of piglets, no gestation crates for sows. No factory farming. They receive all the respect, love and care. See for yourself, all images and videos are real.

 



✔ No factory farming! Humanely raised and treated with respect.
✔ No growth hormones, no subtherapeutic use of antibiotics - ever!
✔ All year free-range pasture-raised on 30 hectares (75 acres) of land. 
✔ One farm, one family, one processor - traceability from farm to fork.

✔ Fed a large variety of grains, nuts and protein sources.

 All-Natural Canadian Style Bacon / Back Bacon

Defrost the pack of bacon in a bowl of water (less than 1 hour) or in the fridge overnight. 

Canadian Style Bacon / Back Bacon

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.

Canadian Style Bacon / Back Bacon

Prepare a frying-pan to high heat and place the bacon slices without additional oil or butter into the frying pan.

Canadian Style Bacon / Back Bacon

Even though leaner than the "American" style bacon which is made from the pork belly, the pork loin also has relatively high-fat content and it will show during cooking. The bacon will also shrink in size and become crispy. The juices that run out are full of flavor. Cook the next slices in the same juices for flavorful bacon. 

Canadian Style Bacon / Back Bacon

Take off the bacon from the heat once crispy brown. The more you cook it the more crispy it becomes. We recommend not cooking them for too long. 

Canadian Style Bacon / Back Bacon

Serve for a full breakfast, as a burger topping or in your salad.

Canadian Style Bacon / Back Bacon

Enjoy crispy bacon. All-natural - without sugar - without nasties and free-range pork.

Unbeatable

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.

Really delicious.

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.

Meaty

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.

Go-to store

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.

Perfect spiciness!

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!

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.

Finally a nice breakfast sausage in Japan

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!!!

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.
