Forget not crispy...It was completely RAWI keep seeing this comment throughout the forums - mainly from American posters - and I just want to clarify what qualifies as raw vs cooked.
This is my perspective:
Note how it is nearly translucent.
COOKED BY NZ STANDARDS
Its a similar colour but not translucent. The meat is cooked and safe to eat.
WHAT SEEMS TO BE THE AMERICAN CONCEPT OF COOKED
This stuff is stiff and really browned. Its rare to encounter bacon like this in NZ. Its mostly confined to American burger chains such as Wendys.
Do you think this cultural difference in cooking bacon is the source of all the appalled comments about how MSC serves raw bacon?
