Step 3: Arrange the bacon in the pot
Once you’ve cut the bacon, separate the slices and place them in the pot. Make sure to distribute the bacon evenly, allowing each piece to have enough room to cook properly. Overcrowding the pot may result in uneven cooking and less crispy bacon.
Step 4: Apply heat and stir as needed
Set your pot on high heat and begin cooking the bacon. Stir the bacon occasionally using a spatula to ensure that it cooks evenly. As the heat intensifies, the fat from the bacon will start to melt, creating a deep-frying effect. This process gives the bacon a delightful crispiness while keeping it tender and flavorful. The fact you are doing this in a large pot avoids any splatters!
Step 5: Enjoy the delicious results
Continue stirring and monitoring the bacon until it reaches your desired level of crispiness. Remember that cooking times may vary depending on the thickness of the bacon and personal preferences. Once the bacon has reached the desired doneness, remove it from the pot using a slotted spoon or tongs, allowing any excess grease to drain.
