This is no joke: Earlier this week, we went to New Seasons to buy a package of Beyond Meat‘s newest product – Beyond Beef. Each place we looked however did not yet have Beyond Beef. So when I arrived at home, I was so surprised to find a package on my porch – a freezer pack from Beyond Meat! They sent me two retail packs – one of their “feisty” flavors, and one of the standard “beefy” flavor.
So tonight we decided to use the feisty version for taco night. This is a super easy, delicious dinner that easily fed 3.
What we included:
- 1 package, Beyond Beef (Feisty)
- Daiya Cheddar Vegan Cheese
- Tofutti Sour Cream
- Organic Black Beans
- Black Olives
- 1/4 Onion, diced
- 2 cloves of garlic, minced
- Avocado, cubed
- Refried beans
- Tortillas and taco shells
- Cayman Jack “Margarita” (optional)
First, combine the Beyond Beef, corn, black beans, garlic and onions in a frying pan. Brown slightly.
Second, build your tacos!
This was our first time trying the new Beyond Beef. The second we put it in the pan, we could recognize a difference from all other ground up beef crumbles. It was more substantial, and had a great color and texture. It cooked easy and uniformly.
In the tacos, the Beyond Beef was delicious – adding its own flavors. Beyond Beef is an awesome new addition to the vegan crumbles market, and I look forward to using it in many other dishes!
