|Description||The meats at Meijer were running low.|
The only thing well stocked were the alternative meats, which as a vegetarian I’m well used to. However I understand that they aren't everyone's cup of tea.
If you are a meat eater who wants to give alternative meat a shot, or looking back and want to know the state of alternative meat during the COVID-19 pandemic, here are my personal opinions. I’m not a chef or anything, so take these with a grain of salt.
Some of the more modern formulations of plant based meat alternatives have tricks to simulate bleeding and the doneness of meat. It’s not perfect, but it’s surprisingly good and filling.
How you season the burger is still extremely important.
Black Bean patties don’t taste like meat, but if you accept them for the delicious spicy disks they are, you’re in for a treat.
Not all formulations are created equal. Read reviews first so you don’t get something bland and dry.
A burger is more than a patty, It is a composition of flavors acting in unison. Get creative! Experiment with buns, cheese or alternative cheese, sauces, vegetables, peppers, and other ingredients.
Consider getting unorthodox, by adding a tinge of beet juice, olives, feta or blue cheese or substitute, or curry to your burger.
A juicy grilled portobello mushroom can be a great substitute for a patty.
If you can’t stand veggie patties, you can just make a sandwich without a patty. Done well this is a perfectly fine alternative to a burger.
