In this video, you’ll see how to make your own homemade bacon the easy way. This version of bacon is not cured or smoked, it’s not brined and has no nitrates added. Basically, there are no special procedures. It’s super easy. With this technique, you’ll simply season pork belly with plenty of salt, cracked black pepper, and, to give a bit more bacon-like flavor, smoky paprika. You’ll see how to wrap the well-seasoned pork belly and cook it in the oven on very low heat. The final step is to slice the pork belly into bacon-size strips and fry it up in a skillet. How does it taste? Well, this is faking making bacon, so it’s not exactly like eating bacon, but it is delicious, crispy pork belly goodness. Give it a try. Watch the video, then see how to make Chef John's Homemade Bacon.
