This recipe is from the Morton Salt website. It is delicious. I have made this several times. Makes great breakfast sandwiches or just as bacon. Or "fake bacon" as my kids call it. It IS Canadian!!!!!! ;) Just teasing!!!!! It is delicious in the summer with fresh tomatoes for a BLT. This is quite economical as pork loins are on special quite often where I live.

How to Make Canadian Bacon

Step-by-Step

  1. Trim piece of pork loin and weigh.
  2. For each pound of pork measure 1 tablespoon of Tenderquick and 1 teaspoon of sugar. I have tried white but prefer brown. Mix well.
  3. Place pork in a zip lock bag. Add salt and sugar mixture and massage into meat.
  4. Refrigerate for 3-5 days turning and massaging daily. I just go the five days for about 2 pounds of pork. Five days should work for even more pounds of pork as the thickness of the loin should be the same. Go the three days for less.
  5. When done curing, remove pork from the bag and soak in cold water for 1/2 hour. Pat dry.
  6. Let set in the refrigerator for a few hours until slightly dry.
  7. Slice thinly and fry in a little oil in a pan until brown on both sides. Enjoy.
  8. This takes a long time but is very little effort. It is soooooo good. It does not look like the processed Canadian Bacon you buy in the store. It looks like real meat. Tastes like it too!
  9. You can slice and freeze this for future use.
