Cook the ‘best bacon you’ll ever have’ without frying in oil or using an oven, claims chef

Bacon is typically preferred crispy, but cooking it so it doesn’t end up charred is a skill.

@chefthomson on TikTok explained that the “most common mistake” people make when cooking bacon is they use a very high heat. This leads to the bacon turning “very dry and crusty”.

Instead of adding copious amounts of oil to a frying pan or putting it in the oven or air fryer, households should try his method to cook bacon.

The expert shared a video where he shows how to cook the “best bacon you’ll ever have”.

To do so, start by adding your rashers of bacon to a cold pan and add water to cover the bacon and turn the heat to medium.

After about three minutes the water will come to a boil – that’s a “good sign” as you want this to simmer.

The chef noted that if the bulbs in the water get too big, just turn down the heat.

He urged: “Stop being afraid to flip the bacon. You do not need to keep the bacon on one side for a long time. This is not a steak.”

The chef claimed that by cooking bacon this way, “you’ll end up with chewy, rich bacon. This is going to be some of the best bacon you’ll probably ever have.”

@uknownperson420 said: “I agree because I used to like crunchy bacon but I tried cooking bacon this way and it slaps.”

However, one user argued that using the oven gives you “perfect” bacon “every time”.

In response, the chef replied: “Oven is good for a large batch. For a smaller portion, this method will be quicker and yield a better result.”
