Miso Glazed Bacon might just be what they serve in heaven… this was a recipe at our last culinary class. Enjoy, but be warned…it is addictively delicious!
1 cup Shiro (White) Miso
1/2 cup Maple Syrup
2 cups Rice Wine Vinegar
1 1/2 cups Mirin
1/2 lb Bacon
In saucepot, cook miso, syrup, wine vinegar and mirin together. Whisk together and reduce on low heat until thick and glossy.
Meanwhile, lay bacon on silpat or parchment paper overlapping and facing same direction. Lay another parchment on top and place smaller sheet pan on top (weigh down with saute pans).
Bake at 375 degrees for about 11 minutes. When bacon is crispy, take out without removing weights.
Remove bacon from pan and lay on new sheet pan with parchment. Heavily glaze the bacon with the miso syrup and bake 2 to 3 minutes. Let cool and cut into even long strips.
