Homemade Halal Bacon Recipe

Not everyone eats pork-based bacon, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on the salty, delicious taste of bacon. This is because bacon can be made from just about every type of meat! You can even make halal bacon at home.

Homemade bacon is a centuries-old process that is very simple and requires few ingredients. All you really need is salt and a bit of patience. We’ve provided you with a basic bacon curing recipe, but feel free to add your own twist to it with additional herbs, spices, and flavorings.  

Homemade Halal Bacon Recipe  

The most important ingredient is a specific type of salt called curing salt. You’ll also need some ground-up sea salt and some sugar. 

For each 1lb of meat, you’ll need: 

  1. 1 tbsp fine sea salt
  2. 3/4 tbsp sugar
  3. 1/4 tsp curing salt

  1. Gather your ingredients. 
  2. Lay the meat in a food-safe container and rub it in the curing mixture by hand. 
  3. Once your meat is thoroughly coated in the curing mixture, cover the container with cling film. You can also wrap the meat itself in cling film.
  4. Place the meat into the refrigerator and leave it to cure. Leaving the meat to do its magic in the fridge is a vital step in making bacon. 
  5. For the next week, you’ll need to flip the bacon once per day. You can use this time to rub any of the curing mixes that have fallen off. 
  6. After 7 days, take the meat out of the clingfilm and gently rinse it off with cold water. 
  7. Pat the meat dry with a piece of kitchen tissue. 
  8. Once it’s fairly dry, wrap the bacon in butcher paper and put it back into the fridge to rest for 24 hours.
  9. After 24 hours, you’ll have delicious, fresh raw bacon!
