Tesco launches Vivera vegan steak
Updated: Jun 5, 2018
In-case you haven’t heard; Tesco have recently started stocking several products from Vivera. Vivera is a vegetarian/vegan company that produces mock meats. From goujons, to shwarma kebab, and burgers are among some of the new offerings. But the main show stopper that everyone has been talking about is the vegan steak. Within days of launching it was reported by Plant Based News to have sold an amazing near 40,000 vegan steaks!
Of course, being a lover of fake meat I just had to get my hands on these vegan steaks! You can get a pack of 2 steaks for just £2.99. This is significantly cheaper than the cost of actual steak, so already that’s a win!
So… how did it taste I am sure you are all wondering? It was absolutely DELICIOUS! To be honest, at first it actually freaked me out how much it actually tastes like beef. The texture is lovely, and it even looks like steak!
Somehow the middle of it stays red/pink just like a real steak. If you used to like beef before going veggie/vegan then you will LOVE this product I guarantee! But, if you don’t like the taste of meat then steer well clear!
Cooking was super easy as well, all you have to do is heat the steak in a frying pan for 5 minutes (2.5 mins on each side). I had mine with mashed potato and onion and mushroom gravy. YUM!
All in all I will definitely be buying this product again, and I can’t wait to try the rest of the Vivera range!
