How to Cook Bacon So It’s Crispy, Tender, and the Most Perfect Ever

Didn’t think frying bacon could get any better? We prove it can.

Here’s a simple way how to make bacon that’s crisp and tender instead of dry and crumbly. Make crispy bacon with no risk of overcooking. Bacon cooked in water? It works!

Place the bacon (in strips or cut into pieces) and just enough water to cover it in a skillet over high heat. When the water reaches a boil, lower the heat to medium. Once all of the water has simmered away, turn down the heat to medium-low and continue cooking until the bacon is crisp and well browned. When we tried this method, the meat plumped up as it cooked instead of shriveling, leaving the bacon pleasantly crisp yet moist, not tough or brittle.

The addition of water keeps the initial cooking temperature low and gentle, so the meat retains its moisture and stays tender. By the time the water reaches its boiling point (212 degrees), the bacon fat is almost completely rendered, so you’re also much less likely to burn the meat while waiting for the fat to cook off.

    160-165 seconds microwave it at 1000 W for four 1/8th" / 3mm thick slices. Turn over at 90 second mark, dab off rendered fat with kitchen paper.
    Reduce time to 120 seconds with only 3 slices, or with thinner slices.
    Mileage may vary with different brands of microwave ovens.

    Presto, crispy tender bacon, nearly no waiting.
    Making the scrambled eggs is gonna take longer.

    I like the other recipe you showed. Heat oven to 400 degrees. I line my pan with foil and spray it with cooking spray. Bake for 5 min. turn over 5 more min and it's great. Only cook it for 4 min per side any more. Perfect.

    Or you could just start the bacon in a cold pan and bring it to medium heat. Only adds a little less than a minute to the cooking time and it comes out perfectly flat and evenly cooked each time.

    works for me

    This is a pretty useless step. It just slows down the original process. You end up with the same crispy bacon both ways. One just takes longer and is unnecessary. Just fried your bacon on medium high and continue to turn it. I've tried both ways and this video is useless waste of time.

    Cook it under the broiler on the middle rack. Turn once early on so it doesn't stick and then once more when it's half done.

    … or you can bake it in the oven on a wire rack. No curling up , excess fat drips away and it's crispy perfectly

    A pig died for this bacon that's so sad. Please go vegan animals are not ours to eat but we kill them every day and steal there milk,eggs,honey and alot more. If you were to go vegan the animals won't be killed and you will live a healthier life.

    We use a metal baking sheet, with parchment paper (to ease cleanup) sprinkled with flour to prevent splatter.

    America's Test Kitchen for how to take a shower.

    First Take off all your clothes and then jump into a lake that is 45 degrees. It will close your pores making sure the dirt does not enter your skin.

    Then jump out and then jump into a swimming pool and swim around for 20-30 minutes making sure the body is completely covered in chlorinated water to kill off any germs that might have stuck onto you body while in the lake.

    After 20-30 minutes of swimming in the chlorinated swimming pool. Step out naked making sure that no towel or clothe touches your body to wipe away any water or chlorine shield.

    While you are still wet, make sure to run the bathtub with scalding hot water. IT MUST BE SCALDING HOT FOR THIS STEP TO WORK. So make sure that the bathtub is filled to the top with the hottest water that your plumbing will provide. If the water is not scalding hot, then you can boil water from the stove and add it to get it to the correct temperature. The best way to test this is to drop a live lobster into the bathtub and see how quickly the lobster turns red. It should turn red in about 5-6 minutes. Once you have made sure the water is scalding hot. JUMP IN!

    Now this step is extremely important because if you mess this up. You will have to start all over again in the 45 degree lake.

    Jump into the scalding bathtub and as the water is burning your skin off. Make sure to scrub gently to wipe away the blood and dead burning skin.

    Once this step is completed. You can now turn the shower on and then walk in and let the soothing aching burning water run all over your body. Gently soaping your body and washing your hair.

    This is the best method of taking a shower. In our next review we will show you how to brush your teeth properly.
