IMPOSSIBLE BURGER NOW IN GROCERY STORES
Well, I’ve been waiting for this a long time. Yes, THE Impossible Burger at Whole Foods Market 14 oz. package looks like ground beef, feels much more oily. Forms well into patties. Four good sized burgers.
I pan-fried in cast iron skillet with about 1 Tablespoon corn oil over medium heat.
Let the dry skillet become hot before adding the oil, then swirl in pan and place the patties equally distanced.
Flip only once. I prefer mine cooked through with no pink. Perfect.
Steve had his on toasted Kaiser buns with mustard relish ketchup onion.
I had mine on toasted Kaiser bun with SOUR CREAM KALAMATA OLIVE SPREAD with iceberg lettuce, tomato, sliced onion. Oh, and I melted a slice of Daiya American Cheese over the patty.
Now that’s the best burger I ever had.
Upon opening the package a distinct smell of blood permeates your nostrils. Yes, plant blood smells and tastes like human blood. The iron content contained in the vegeglobin extracted from nodules on the root of the soy bean plant is the source and the cause.
The Impossible burgers I’ve had at several restaurants in Cleveland did not taste or texture like this one, but were similar. Who knows for sure what the individual chefs do with the product, but from now on I will purchase mine at a grocery store and cook my own at home.
Look forward to future experimentation with this fine ground plant beef.
Yes, it is a miracle. A miracle that’s been existing for as long as the soy plant itself.
What else in the plant world have we humans overlooked that will be touted, at least by this chef, as the next miracle food?
I know there’s an effort by the slaughter industries to contain the spread of these miracle products to high end stores that most of the populace can’t afford to shop at.
Product location fixing is discriminatory based on social-economic status and needs to be eradicated. No industry should be allowed to fix prices or selling locations for another industry’s product.
Neither do these decisions belong in the domain of congress or the judicial system.
They belong in the domain of the maker, seller and buyer of the product.
To allow large payments to large store chains to blacklist other vendor’s products for the purpose of selling one’s own product needs to be outlawed as extortion. “Take the payment or we’ll ruin your business” can no longer be the way of business.
Small businesses always lose. For political parties to claim they support small business when in fact they work against them in favor of large conglomerates and corporations is a flat out lie and will not be rewarded with votes come Election Day.
Once a month we’ll enjoy these animal-free burgers, and take a long bus ride to purchase them where they’re sold in upscale markets, till the price comes down and they’re available in local mainstream markets.
