Beef Bacon and Kale

It seems like everyone I know that doesn't keep Kosher is obsessed with bacon. Truth be told, I've had the real thing, and I was never that interested in it. When I went Kosher, I found out that a specialty meat company, Grow and Behold, stocks Kosher beef bacon. I pooled an order with several other members of my community and got a few packages of it. Then it sat in my freezer for months. What do I do with bacon? I've never made it and didn't even know where to begin. A few months ago I found a recipe online that used bacon with kale (and beets, which my husband is not a fan of). This is my variation of that recipe found here: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/kale-with-roasted-beets-and-bacon-recipe/index.html


  • Ready Time : 0 min


4-6 Servings


  • 1 package Kosher bacon You can get beef at Grow and Behold, there are others available, even lamb in different places
  • 1 large bunch kale Washed and checked for bugs
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth or stock
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar


With a very light amount of olive oil, heat a saucepan. Add bacon and wait 3-5 minutes until it begins to crisp. Flip it and cook another 2 minutes. Try to keep all the grease in the pan.

Put bacon pieces on a towel-lined plate and place kale in saucepan filled with bacon grease. Toss the kale around so that all of it gets some of the bacon flavour. Cover the saucepan for 4-5 minutes until the kale starts to reduce. Add three tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and the chicken broth and cook another 3-5 minutes.

Add the bacon, cut up, back into the kale and serve warm.

  1. Oh thank you! I have been looking for a great Kosher replacement. I did not grow up kosher and have been wondering about this! This sounds like a great recipe- I may try with Spinach!

  2. How much is your beef bacon?
