Where can I find slab bacon in Austin?
Does anyone know where I can buy a pound of slab bacon in Austin? I need my bacon slices cut about 3/8 of an in thick for lardons in a recipe and all the stores I've called/checked thus far only sell pre-cut bacon that is 1/8 in thick. Basically I need a place that has a giant block of bacon they can slice to my specifications. Places I've checked thus far:
If anyone knows where I can find this, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Have you tried the deli counter at one of the HEB Plus stores, or even a regular HEB ? Worth a phone call to check..
Central Market (at least the south store) carries Smithfield brand dry cured slab bacon in cloth sacks just before you turn the corner at the seafood counter (acrosss from the sausages, not the section by the wine). They also have the whole hams on display here.
