Beyond Meat Beyond Sausage Brat Original Review

Beyond Meat Beyond Sausage

From the moment we purchased the Beyond Meat Beyond Sausage, we knew we were in for a treat. “Have you had this?” our cashier asked. “It’s really good. I got scared I was eating real sausage.” After a comment like that, we wanted to try this meatless sausage as soon as we can.

While we found this sausage in the frozen food section, the instructions say that these sausages should be thawed before they’re cooked, just like you’d have to thaw real meat. It was hard to be patient, but we wanted the best possible sausage experience, so we waited to cook these up.

You can cook these sausages on the grill or on a griddle, but we chose to heat everything up on the stovetop. You’ll have to keep an eye on your sausage as it cooks — it needs to be turned frequently — but it’s still a fast and easy process. You’ll know that everything’s done when your sausage is browned on all sides. It took us around 7 minutes to cook our sausages up.

The first time we sampled these sausages, we tried them plain. Without any sort of sauce or seasoning, it’s pretty easy to tell that these aren’t made from real meat. The texture is surprisingly convincing, but they have a grainy taste that you won’t find in real sausage. The sausages manage to mimic the juiciness of actual meat, and they’re definitely delicious, but they’re not going to fool carnivores without a little bit of subterfuge.

The second time around, we decided to dress our sausages up a bit and serve them up like real brats. We wrapped them in buns and slathered them in toppings like ketchup and mustard before we dug in. If you choose to serve your sausages this way, then yes, someone might be tricked into thinking they’re eating a pork sausage. Beyond Meat absolutely nails the textures here, so if you can conceal certain flavors, you can enjoy the experience of eating meat.

The Beyond Meat Beyond Sausage Original Brat is a perfect option for vegans, vegetarians, and anyone trying to reduce their meat intake. We’d even venture to say it’s a treat for anyone who enjoys good food. These meatless brats are absolutely delicious; this take on the faux brat is one of the best fake meat products we’ve tried. This is an amazing plant-based alternative to meat.
