- 1 pound of Chinese bacon, soaked in water for at least 6 hours
- 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Cut the meat crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick pieces.
Place the sugar in a wide dish and dredge both sides of each bacon piece in the sugar, pressing the sugar firmly onto the pieces with your fingers.
Arrange the slices on a pan or skillet and bake, turning once, until the bacon is cooked and browned, about 15 to 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
