Beef Bacon?


Never heard of it, you say? Well, neither had I until my husband brought it home after a trip to the Swingle Meat Company in Jackson. My dad, who is an old-time Missouri farmer, was in town for a few days and the allure of Swingle’s farm fresh beef was just too much. They stopped in and found beef bacon in the butcher’s freezer. Dad recalled his dad – who was also an old-time Missouri farmer – talking about beef bacon, and my dad just had to try it. I’m glad he did, because it tastes just like pork bacon, was a little less expensive, and was wider and more thickly cut – ideal for some premo BLTs, which I consider a major food group in the summertime. So, next time you are looking for bacon, be sure to ask: “Where’s the beef?”
