The Best Way to Make Crispy Bacon: Add Water

Get ready to be wowed.

The best way of making crispy, juicy bacon that’s not dried out or brittle is actually to cook it in water first. 🤯🌊🥓

เชฟหัวกะทิที่ America’s Test Kitchen อธิบายเรื่องนี้ไว้ และเว็บไซต์ Real Simple ก็ทดลองต่อว่าเป็นจริงแค่ไหน ส่วนเราขอสรุปตามนี้

  1. First, lay your bacon out on a cold pan with a large cooking surface
    1. Our Accent Series Ultra-Durable Nonstick Frypan is perfect for this. It has a big cooking surface, and the tall sidewalls will catch oil splatters.
  2. Spoon in several tablespoons of water, so that all your strips get wet.
  3. Cook off the water on medium or medium-high heat.
  4. When the water has fully cooked off, turn the heat to medium-low and cook till the bacon is crisp-yet-tender and well-browned.

Of course, if you’re cooking for a large group, it’s hard to beat the convenience-to-quality ratio of the famous oven technique. However, if you want the best balance of tenderness and crispiness, give the water technique a try.
