Although considered ‘unhealthy,’ bacon has always been one of the most popular meals in the world. When it’s wrapped around a filling of spiced sausage and crumbled bacon, it’s the best thing for breakfast or for a quick meal at any time of the day. Bacon even has its day, the International Bacon Day on September 3.
People call for bacon whenever they have to feed themselves in the middle of something, but cooking bacon can be frustrating sometimes. Almost always, it ends up burnt, changing its taste. Cooking the bacon on the oven also gives it a change in taste. So the America’s Test Kitchen found a way to chase your worries away. And the solution? Boiling water.
In the video, they want to prove that cooking bacon using water is actually more convenient. It saves you from having house smelling like bacon and heating up the oven. This water method may take a longer time, though, but it gives better result than the microwaved one or if you cook it yourself. It renders out most of the fat nicely.
Placing the bacon into a pan, covering it with water, and setting it at a high temperature are first few steps in this easy DIY method. When the water starts to boil, lower down the heat to medium, and when the water’s all evaporated, turn it down to low. This method leaves you with a crispy set of bacon, ready to be munched on.
This method is easy and helps us arrive with a better result. Now a quick breakfast meal is never less than perfect.
