Beyond burger


I like a number of fake meat products: the Morningstar spicy black bean veggie burger and veggie Buffalo chicken patty sandwich for example. The Quorn Veggie chicken patty sandwich is good too.

What's not good are the Morningstar grillers veggie burgers. They have a weird texture and no flavor. I'm not a fan at all.

I happened to notice my supermarket now carries the Beyond Burger. I've heard it's supposed to be good, so I thought I'd give it a try.

This was defrosted by my grocery store and in the meat case, but you may also find them still frozen.


They're surprisingly pink and soft and look like meat.


Seasoned with salt, freshly ground black pepper, garlic power, and cayenne pepper, and a spritz of oil, on both sides, as I do for beef burgers.


Grilled. I followed the directions and cooked for 3 minutes a side, but 2 1/2 would probably have been better. They were a little over-cooked as my infrared propane grill is very hot.


With a little Cabot extra sharp cheddar cheese.


It's pretty low in calories for being quite substantial: 270 calories (just the burger, not everything else).


The verdict is that they're much better than the Morningstar Grillers, but not as a good as a beef burger. But that might be because I slightly overcooked them, so I'll have to try once more to be sure.

Update: March 13, 2020: This time I grilled it for 5 minutes (2:30 per side) on my infrared propane grill and it was much better!
