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?”

    Hi Rosa,

    There may be other places to purchase beef bacon, but the only place we have come across it is Swingle Meat Company in Jackson, California.

    It’s about an hour southeast of Sacramento in Amador County.
