Canadian bacon cure question

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I was going to try my first canadian bacon using Cowgirls dry cure. It calls for Morton's tender quick. After looking at two grocery stores and Gander Mountain all I could come up with was "Lem Cure". My question is, is this the same as tender quick? Will it work? The directions say 1/4 tsp per pound. Thanks to everyone in advance!

Dingle, I don't think it's the same. You might want to order Tenderquick online.
I have found TQ in the spice section of the local Walmart might check there.
Good luck to

edited to add...I have never tried the Lem cure, I bet it would make fine canadian bacon...I'm just not familiar with the amounts you would use.

You are exactly the person I was hoping would respond to this question. Thank you. Truth is I was hoping you would answer the way you did because my pork loin is already in the cure. As long as it works right?

Dingle, I hope it works for you, please let me know how it goes.
I know there are several good canadian bacon cures out there...I just use TQ cause it's available to me and it's really easy to use. (don't tell anyone)icon_mrgreen.gif

Thank you Cowgirl. Your secret is safe with me but......I think the cat is out of the bag. When I hear Morton's I think of salt. Do you think this Lem cure will accomplish the same?

Dingle I bet it does.....
I've never tried it though. As long as you followed their directions, you should be just fine.
Can't wait to see how it comes out.
