Water is a little known secret that helps bacon achieve a crisp yet tender bite that melts in your mouth. It renders out the grease, cooks the bacon evenly, and allows the bacon to essentially fry in its own fat. Air drying the bacon strips overnight in the refrigerator is another technique we’ll use to make it extra crispy. When we air dry, we help take more moisture out of the fat, causing the bacon to lay flat and not curl up to ensure even cooking. The Anova Precision Oven Steam Mode makes this process foolproof and splatter free, you’re guaranteed to enjoy breakfast a little more each time.
NOTE: You can also use bacon straight out of the pack without air drying. Just add a little more time in the dry heat stage and cook to your desired doneness. Also, if doing multiple racks, give the bacon on the lower rack positions a little more time in dry heat stage if it still feels a little underdone.
