Let's talk about the meatless burger that is sweeping the nation. When most of us think about a meatless patty, we assume it's some variation of a veggie burger. We associate it with something that is going to be dry and bland. Not this one. The Beyond Meat Burger by Beyond Meat looks and tastes exactly like a real burger. The creators believed that there was a better way to feed the world and wanted to make a delicious alternative to animal protein. Spoiler alert: they succeeded! This is a revolutionary burger that is winning the hearts of both vegetarians and carnivores alike.

When you fry this burger up in a pan the fat even renders down like a normal patty would. People are shocked by how meat-like this burger looks when they are cooking it. It starts pink a slowly turns a brown golden color on the outside. A meat eater would never know that this was fake beef. This meatless patty is so realistic it even bleeds!

Cooking up a VEGAN #beyondmeatburger and it's looking quite burger-ish.
