How to Fry Crispy Bacon Easily With Water
I always dreaded whenever a recipe that I am interested of calling for bacon. Why ar, some of you may ask. That is all because my lack of skill to fry a crispy bacon. I have tried to pan fry it with a little bit of oil, with lots of oil, or simply bake it but the bacon always turned out either too hard and chewy, or soft and undercooked.
Finally, I chanced upon this cooking method which is an eye opener to me. The secret of this method? Water.
Water? Yes I know, water and crispy doesn't sound like going well with each other, right? But it works, which is what matter most, and there was not much spilling of oil. So that you can save your time cleaning and get to enjoy your food faster.
Firstly, boil a bit of water in a frying pan, just enough to cover the pan. When the water is boiled, lay bacon flat in the pan to cook.
When the water starts to dry up and you can smell the fragrance of the bacon, lower the heat.
Continue to simmer over low heat, flip the bacon once a while.
The bacon is now done.
