Decades ago I tried Fakin’ Bacon. I don’t even know if this is the same company. Either they changed the recipe/formula or my appreciation for it changed.
It’s made by Lightlife, the people who make Gimme Lean breakfast sausage in a tube – a product I swear by.
Although I’ve never pursued tempeh when everybody else was into it, and I’m still not pursuing it, this product was off the charts – just plain.
I ate a piece raw before cooking it in oil and it had, at least to me, a wine flavor. Like Sherry.
Cooked 3-4 minutes each side in oiled skillet, and it textured more like ‘fall off the bone’ than bacon.
Great taste and texture.
What is tempeh? Tempeh is a traditional soy product originating from Indonesia. It is made by a natural culturing and controlled fermentation process that binds soybeans into a cake form. Wikipedia.
If I saw this again, I would definitely buy it.
