Locally-sourced and ethically raised beef.
WHY WE LOVE THIS: Our beef bacon is made from the beef navel. Similar to pork belly, it has layers of fat and lean muscle that creates the crispy, flavorful bacon we all love. The navels are tumbled in a vacuum tumbler for six hours with a brine consisting of water, salt, brown cane sugar, black pepper, sodium nitrite.
After tumbling, the navels sit overnight to allow the cure to set and then are hung on smoke carts. They are smoked/cooked until the internal temperature reaches 155°F.

FOM THE CHEF: Beef bacon does best cooked in the oven at 400°F for about 20 minutes, but we suggest starting to check for crispy-ness at 15 minutes as cooking times can vary. Beef bacon can be used to top nachos or pizza, makes a great "B" in a classic BLT, and can be used for a creamy Carbonara with corn.
RAISED RESPONSIBLY: Like all of our meat, this comes from farmers who raise their animals with respect. They follow strict animal-welfare guidelines that we developed in partnership with the ASPCA. These farmers work hard every day and in return, we take care of them by paying fair and consistent prices for their animals. We think that makes sense.
