Peameal Bacon Recipe

Peameal Bacon Ingredients

  1. 5 lbs. boneless pork loin
  2. 1 gallon distilled or boiled and cooled water
  3. 3/4 cup kosher salt or 1/2 cup table salt
  4. 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  5. 1 tablespoon black peppercorns, whole
  6. four bay leaves
  7. 3 crushed garlic cloves
  8. 2 tsp Prague Powder
  9. 2 tbsp cornmeal

Peameal Bacon Instructions

  • If the boneless pork loin hasn’t previously been cut, remove all but about 1/4-inch of fat.
  • Dissolve the distilled water, kosher salt, sugar, peppercorns, garlic, bay leaves, and Prague Powder #1 in a mixing bowl.
  • Refrigerate the pork loin in the brine for 5 days, turning it over and stirring the liquid once a day.
  • Drain the brine from the meat and discard it. Replace the container with cold tap water and submerge the pork loin in clean water for 2 hours. After 2 hours, dump the water and refill it with clean water, then soak it in the fridge for another 2 hours. You’re desalinating the pork to make it less salty.
  • Roll the pork in the cornmeal, pushing down lightly for equal coating.
  • Cook and have fun!


  • There are no nutritional numbers for this recipe since the cook cannot predict how much brine the pork will absorb.
