When is meat both better for you and easier to use? When it’s Beyond Meat, 100% plant based protein.

This new meat substitute has the same consistency and similar flavor as ground beef or chicken, but with less fat and perfect for vegetarians and vegans who just want a delicious taco with ground meat- or omnivores who want to eat less meat or a change of pace.


Beyond Meat is perfect for nachos- check out the recipe at http://www.beyondmeat.com/recipes/view/beyond-beef-nachos

We have personally found meat substitutes fall into two categories.
1- The “meh”-  this means this is not meat, has never been meat, does not taste like meat- it tastes fine but I would not go out of my way for it.  This “meh” meat-less meat is ok, but not anything special. Usually, my husband hates those products.

2- Then there is the ’wow’ this is almost meat! The flavor is good, the texture is right, and I enjoy it (even as a meat-eater). This category is harder to reach and there are a few winners- Beyond Beef is one of them. It can easily be passed off as ground beef for Mexican dishes, Italian meatballs, and any other ground meat based dish. The tacos came out very good and to the point there my husbad went for a second helping- and he hates what he calls “fake meat”.  On the other hand, I’m less picky, but this so far has been my very favorite.


Another one of my favorite things in life- chili! Make it meatless with thi recipe http://www.beyondmeat.com/recipes/view/beyond-beef-chili

When cooking Beyond Meat, realize it is already cooked and ready to go, you just need to heat it up so it is the same temperature as the rest of your food. Easy Breezy. When making Italian meatballs, I started with one egg to about a half pound of Beyond Meat, then added bread crumbs to firm it up and hold it together. I then baked the meat-less balls along with the rest of the meatballs and they came out perfect. Beyond beef is non-GMO based pea protein product so you will not find any odd unprocessed bits of veges in your burger, just meat-less food.  There are also chicken-less strips made from soy protein and pea protein, which look just like grilled chicken strips.

Beyond Beef and Beyond Meat is available now in your grocer’s freezer section at local Fairways, Kings, and Target stores.

  4. Rebecca Swenor says

    This Beyond Meat sounds interesting and the nachos along with the chili looks so good. I would love to try this for sure. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I am always on the hunt for a meat alternative for Meatless Mondays. My family is full of carnivores, and every product I have tried so far has been in the meh category for them. Can’t wait to give this a try.

  6. I am a confirmed omnivore! I have never heard of Beyond Meat before–Pea protein–hum-maybe I will give it a try–add that to spaghetti sauce instead of hamburger for a hearty meat sauce.

  7. those look very good
