This is not really a recipe.  It is more of an endorsement of this product.  I have long been a fan of Beyond Meat & use it in all kinds of ways but this was my first experience with their veggie burgers.   First things first – you can get Beyond Meat coupons HERE and there is a store locator on the site, too, so you can see where you can buy this stuff near you.

So – as you can see – they LOOK pretty beefy (which is half the challenge) and their texture is chewier & meatier than say, a Gardenburger.  They chew a bit closer to how a McDonald’s burger chews and, let’s be honest, McDonald’s burgers probably are not real meat either.  And even when your burger is a bona fide beef burger – did you know that any burger patty you eat might contain meat from up to 100 different cows – from several different countries?  GROSS!

These Beast burgers taste delicious – though no real meat eater will be fooled.  I actually find it frustrating that meat-eaters expect there to be no way to detect the difference between real & fake meats.  Though Beyond Meat chicken comes as close as anything I have ever experienced in the department of trickery (in that, if cooked right, some folks might believe it really is chicken) – but the point of these products, from my perspective, is to offer a viable, healthier & cruelty-free replacement/substitute to unsustainable & cruel real meat products.  Diet Coke doesn’t fool anyone that it is real Coke but people have adjusted – in the interest of saving calories.   Consider fake meats the same way – that they are a reasonable substitute for real meat that is full of fat & hormones & pain & unbelievable agony.  These Beyond Meat products look convincing & have none of that aftertaste that some earlier fake meats had.  These burgers are the best faux burgers I have ever had & Beyond Meat faux meats take on sauces & other accoutrements like champs & the more you season them with things like my vegan nacho cheese sauce or Asian flavors, etc, the more convincing they get.

HERE are a bunch of vegan chicken dishes I have posted in the past.

HERE are a bunch of vegan ground beef recipes.

 Here – I melted my 2-ingredient, 5-minute vegan nacho cheese sauce in a pan & poured it over the cooked burgers.

I then added red onion, tomato, arugula, pickles, mustard & ketchup.  The result was a trio of sloppy, delicious “beef” sliders that everybody could enjoy.  Top yours with your favorites but be sure to try the Beast in either version – slider of full-sized.  Again – go to the site for a store locator and coupons are HERE.  These guys will make you proud at the 4th of July BBQ’s you attend!  I recommend them without reservation.
