Equipment

  • Sous Vide Cooker
  • Sous Vide Container
  • Kitchen Tongs
  • Skillet

Ingredients

  • 1 lb pork bacon
  • pinch smoked salt, (optional)

Instructions

  • Preheat the sous vide machine to 142º. Then, transfer the bacon from the packaging to a sous vide bag. If you're planning to add the smoked salt, add it now. Vacuum seal the bag. 
  • Next, you'll sous vide the bacon at 142ºF for 8 hours.
  • Once the bacon is done in the sous vide bath, transfer it to a paper towel lined cutting board. Pat bacon dry.
  • Heat a large skillet to medium-high heat and add the sous vide bacon.
  • Sear each side for about 30-60 seconds, until it gets crispy. Once done, transfer to a paper towel lined cutting board and serve.

Notes

  • The bacon is officially cooked after the sous vide process.
  • Keep in mind that the bacon will not be crispy right out of the sous vide bath. If you want that crispy tender bacon, sear it in a skillet or in a cast iron skillet.
  • You don't want to sous vide the bacon in its original package because it contains a piece of plastic or cardboard and you don't want to cook that!
  • It's ok if the bacon overlaps.
