    Vegan Steak?

    The price of Beef is going up. This may be in our future.
    Plant Based Steak Recipe (Tastes Like Meat!) - YouTube

    Beef was the highest when the Cow Jumped Over the Moon.

      You do not know what you are missing.

    Four major meat companies control ~ 80% of beef production, and they are all dipping their toes into plant based meats. I wouldn't be surprised if meat production goes down and PBMs increase. Demand will make meat prices climb higher...

      Well with Bill Gates buying up all of the farm land in the US and touting the benefits of plant based meat, someone hand me a loaded pistol. This world is upside-down enough already.....

        In our day they are saying, "What is bad is good and good is bad."

        smokenoob You’re right! I will marinade my portobellos in Good Seasons Italian Dressing for about 15 minutes, add some Lawry’s Garlic Salt and a little pepper. Grill off heat for about 20 minutes. Damn good!

        Yep ... and a nice thick "steak" cut from a cauliflower, then properly seasoned and grilled ain't bad either.

        Both portabellos, an cauliflower are delightful, scrumptious treats, which I greatly savor, an enjoy... as an aside: neither one are beef steaks...

        Since boiling the concoction for 20 minutes is part of the process, it appears the terrorists won!

          My sister has been a vegan for many years and I've had some of the items she has made with vital wheat gluten (seitan) and they can be quite tasty.

            I’m going to say pass, BUT, with prices rising like they are here never say never.

              Why do I keep reading these fake meat threads? I keep swearing I won't. Damn it.

                Industrial meat production is bad in a lot of ways (environmental too) and while I understand t he plant based 'meat' companies wanting to create a steak alternative to go with the ground beef alternative, it will be really hard.

                I think a more sustainable alternative would be vat grown meat which raises some really interesting questions...

                1) If you couldn't tell the difference between meat from an animal and vat grown, would you care?
                2) If you're vegetarian for ethical reasons, do those reasons apply here?

                I don't see why the mere existence of this stuff tweaks some of you out so much. They're nice alternatives for people who, for whatever reason, don't eat meat. If I was having a mixed crowd over today and some were vegetarians, I'd be really happy that I could grill them an Impossible Burger and include them in a cook out without making a big fuss about it.

                  rickgregory I agree with CN 100%. Nobody is following you around and trying to police what you say. You seem to be a pretty intelligent guy with much to offer here. But then you turn around and ruin it all with your caustic comments to people when you don’t agree with them. That’s what this place is NOT about. You seriously need to re-examine whether you want to be here or not. There’s several people I’ve learned about recently who have blocked you because of your critical comments.

                  PJ - ah, now you're a mod. Interesting. Of course no one has ever raised any issue with me, so forgive me if I take your claim with... some salt.

                  What you miss is that CN has, several times, attacked me personally (the 'dictator attack is precisely that).

                  Panhead John I'm afraid I'm guilty as charged, this isn't the first time I've pointed out rickgregory for posting condescending hypocrisy, which apparently in Seattle is considered a personal attack. He is, however, flattering himself thinking I follow him around, but I suppose everyone needs a hobby. Chess is one of mine, and Dictator Attack would make a great name for an opening. 1. h4 doesn't have a name yet as it is a losing move. Maybe naming it Dictator Attack would catch on

                Again I ask, please use Off Topic for things....off... the topic of food, cookers, cooking, cooking accessories, fuels, etc.. Thanks for your cooperation in both helping keep things organized and eliminating extra work for the mods.

              The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted


              Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
