Bacon is prepared from several different cuts of meat. It is usually made from side and back cuts of pork, except in the United States, where it is almost always prepared from pork belly (typically referred to as "streaky", "fatty", or "American style" outside of the US and Canada). The side cut has more meat and less fat than the belly. Bacon may be prepared from either of two distinct back cuts: fatback, which is almost pure fat, and pork loin, which is very lean. Bacon-cured pork loin is known as back bacon. Bacon may be eaten smoked, boiled, fried, baked, or grilled, or used as a minor ingredient to flavour dishes. Bacon is also used for barding and larding roasts, especially game, e.g. venison, pheasant.

Lots grease is left after the cooking which can saved for later . Cooking in simple, easy and quick. The simplest and most common way to cook bacon is lay out strips in a frying pan and set it on a high flame. Within minutes you'll have a crunchy cooked bacon strips in sizzling hot fat. A more health conscious & clean way of cooking bacon is in the Microwave. Now in India we don't get fresh cut Bacon and have to rely on Frozen Packed Bacon, so lets proceed from there. Scouring my local mart I found two types of Bacon Strips. 1. Back Bacon - 150/- for 150 gms 2. Streaky Bacon - 198/- for 150 gms I opted for the more traditional Streaky Bacon. Now before we get any further, this is my first attempt at preparing Bacon with little cooking skills at hand.
