Pork bacon slices or belly?
So silly question
Is it best for a bacon enthusiast to buy online slices or pork belly?
If so where to buy belly online?
1. Buy both.
2. Wrap belly in bacon.
Seriously which one is better in terms of minimally processed or added ingredients and if I get the Belly does it come frozen and can I defrost and refreeze safely
Funny you bring this up. I have just bought a pork belly and plan to slice it up and fry for breakfast instead of bacon which I have been eating daily for the past few months. My reasons were mainly due to cost, pastured bacon is $38/kg instead of the belly $25/kg.
I don't know about health wise but the belly couldn't be any worse for you....smoking and use of nitrates may be less healthy for you ? I'm sure someone else with more knowledge will chime in.
