Bacon is not very hard to cook. However, it does not always come out the way we would like. It may come out dry and crumbly instead of nice and crispy. Fortunately, there are a few things you can do in order to ensure that you cook the perfect bacon.
The first thing you will need to do is place the bacon in the pan and pour water over it. You should use enough water to cover the bacon. Turn the temperature on the stove on high. The water will help keep the bacon’s temperature low. This helps keep the bacon keep its moisture, which also helps keep it tender.
Once the water reaches a boil, you will need to reduce the heat to medium. Continue cooking the bacon until it is crisp and brown. Most of the fat on the bacon has already rendered by the time that it has boiled. If you cook bacon this way, then you will also be much less likely to burn the bacon.
You will be left with bacon that is plump and crispy instead of tough and brittle. Adding a little bit of water to the pan helps you cook the perfect bacon.
