Beef Bacon and Eggs

One of the delicious items in our care package from US Wellness Meats was their Sugar Free Beef Bacon. We were really anxious to try this out after seeing it on their website. This monstrous uncured beef bacon is only seasoned with spices. No sugar added to the process, not even in the form of honey or pure maple syrup. Choosing this item as part of our shipment was a no-brainer. Beef, bacon, and no added sugar? SCORE!


This bacon is possibly the most amazing bacon our lips have ever touched. The flavor is almost like a mix of pork bacon and beef jerky. Our first reaction to the bacon was…”if beef jerky and bacon had a baby…”, yes that is what it would be. We received forewarning from the folks at US Wellness, that beef bacon needs to cook a bit differently than pork bacon to yield those crispy bacon results. They suggested possibly broiling the bacon, but left it up to us to figure it out. After opening the bacon, and fully analyzing what appeared to be dinosaur sized bacon strips, we decided that broiling was definitely the way to go. Besides, we weren’t even sure these guys would fit in the frying pan!

For this recipe we kept things simple by reliving our bacon and eggs post. We broiled the beef bacon for a side of delicious crispy beef strips, fried up some omega 3 enriched eggs in coconut oil, along with some shredded green cabbage. This breakfast was possibly our favorite primal breakfast yet! We still have some of the glorious beef bacon left in the freezer, which we are saving for a special morning. Maybe our 1 year anniversary which is coming up? We shall see!

Ingredients:

  • 4 strips US Wellness Meats Sugar Free Beef Bacon
  • 2-4 omega 3 enriched eggs
  • 1-2 cups shredded green cabbage
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Process:

  1. Preheat oven to broil at 500, and raise the oven rack to the top level.
  2. Place beef bacon strips onto a baking sheet and set a side.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon coconut oil in a frying pan on medium heat.
  4. Saute green cabbage until soft and a bit crispy. Season with salt and pepper and remove from heat.
  5. Heat remaining teaspoon of coconut oil in frying pan on medium heat.
  6. Crack eggs into frying pan and cook 2-3 minutes, flipping once. Remove eggs from heat and plate with the cabbage.
  7. Place bacon in oven and broil for 7 minutes a side, flipping once. (the second side goes faster, and everyone’s oven temp may be different so keep an eye on these guys until you have your first batch done!)

As always, enjoy!

    I simply must try beef bacon. Pig bacon and beef jerky got it on and procreated, huh. Awesomeballs!

    I tried Beef Bacon from my Butcher and my family didn't like it.

    Maybe the way US Wellness prepares it and following your cooking advice will make them see differently!

    I've had a package of USWM beef bacon in the freezer forever. I didn't like it on the first run-through (skillet) and have refused to throw the rest away, but also totally uninterested in trying again. Maybe this is the ticket? I sure hope so!

    Try it broiled. The fat on the beef bacon doesn't get crispy like regular bacon unless its under the broiler. We were warned that the cooking strategy might be different, and people either love it or hate it. We happened to love it, and broiling worked perfectly. We would definitely encourage a second try!

    Thank you so much for this post! Mine is a house divided- half the family loves pork bacon and half the family loves beef bacon. I'm on the "team beef". Grass-fed, sugar free beef bacon = heavenly wonder for me. I like to cook a few extra slices just so I have sprinkles for my BAS (big *ss salad as Mark's Daily Apple would say). And yes, I agree high heat is the key!

    Ah! I always wanted to try that bacon, but I have never gotten myself to order from that web site – not sure why!! AH! I want it now.

    I've got a package of the beef bacon from US Wellness in my freezer as well, but it keeps getting passed over for the pork bacon… I'm really going to have to break that out one of these weekends!
