Beyond Meat Sausage: A Delicious Beef Alternative.

You will most often come across meat alternatives such as BEYOND MEAT brand at Amazon Fresh or Whole Foods Market. They have great online reviews. I have explored a few of this company’s plant-based products before and is very impressed.beyond meat spicy sausage

The texture and flavor of some Texture Vegetable Proteins (TVP) or vegan meat alternatives are not so great. But the products from Beyond Meat look like real meat and are  very delicious.

Is Beyond Meat Sausage Vegan?

Beyond Sausage is vegan certified and surprisingly does not contain any soy. But most importantly, they are tasty and look like real meat. I shared with my mom and she had no idea that this was meatless.

Nutrition Content

The Beyond Meat plant-based breakfast sausage patties are low in calories and are a good source of protein (11 g/2 patties). However, 1 serving (2 patties) contains 12 g of fat with 4.5 g coming from saturated fat. 

Based on the ingredients listed, my educated guess is that the “expeller-pressed canola oil” and the “refined coconut oil” are the main contributing ingredients to the fat content of the patties. 

Even though coconut oil is plant-based, the oil is saturated. Saturated fats that are most often found in animal products such as beef and pork can lead to heart and cardiovascular diseases when frequently consumed in excessive amounts.

Is Coconut Oil Healthy?

There has been a controversy for years around the health implications of consuming too much coconut oil. 

Today, it is one of the most sought after health oils on the market. Moreover, I grew up seeing my family cooking with coconut oil; most times it was homemade. (click HERE  for my coconut oil recipe). However, beyond meat products are plant-based. I still think that their products are healthy. The fat content contributes to the product’s flavor and texture profile.

Beijing Beef is my favorite go-to menu item at Panda Express. This recipe features the Beefless version of this popular dish. It is sweet, tangy, crunchy, and chewy all at the same time. Served over noodles and make a delicious plant-based dish.

Beyond Meat Beijing Beef

  • 1 box Beyond Meat Breakfast Sausage (6)
  • cup Red Bell Pepper, Cubed
  • 1 medium Yellow Onion, Cubed
  • 3 tbsp. Corn Starch
  • 1 tbsp. Complete Seasoning
  • ½ cup Vegetable Oil
  • 1 tsp. Soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. Balsamic Vinegar

Let's Make The Beijing Sauce

  • ¼ cup Teriyaki Sauce/Marinate
  • 1 tsp. Garlic Powder
  • cup Sweet and Sour Sauce
  • 1 tbsp Soy Sauce
  • cup Tomato Ketchup
  • 1 tbsp. Brown Sugar
  • cup Escovitch Sauce or White Cane Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Smoked Paprika
  • ¼ cup Honey
  • 1 tsp. Pimento Seeds (allspice).


Prepare The Beyond Meat

  • Remove Beyond Meat sausage patties from its package. While they are frozen, carefully use a sharp knife to cut each patty into 3 fairly equal pieces.
    Cutting them while frozen allows you to easily cut them; they are a bit difficult to cut evenly when thawed.

  • Leave cut pieces of meatless sausages at room temperature to continue to thaw or defrost.

  • Once thawed, add "beef" pieces to a bowl and season with soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, and complete seasoning. The sauce will allow the cornstarch to stick and coat the beef pieces.

Let's Fry Some Beyond Meat Beijing "Beef"

  • In a cast-iron pan, heat vegetable oil for 2 minutes on high flame.

  • Lower heat to medium. Gently lay each piece of the sausages into hot oil and brown for about 1 minute on each side. Remember, this is plant-based. In comparison to beef, Beyond Meat plant-based products do not take a long time to cook.

  • Remove from oil using a tong and place on paper towel to drain excess oil. The cornstarch gives the beyond meat "beef" a very crispy texture.

The Sauce

  • In a small saucepan, combine all these ingredients: ketchup, sweet and sour sauce, brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, pimento seeds, vinegar, paprika, teriyaki marinate, garlic powder, and balsamic vinegar.

  • The sauce can be heated for 1 minute to help dissolve the sugar and marry all the ingredients together. Stir constantly to avoid burning.
  • Take some of the remaining oil used for frying the beyond meat and pour it into a wok. Over medium heat, add the cubed onion and red bell pepper to oil and stir. Cook for 1-2 minutes.

  • Add the crispy fried plant-based Beyond Meat to the Beijing sauce mixture. Tossed and stir ensuring that all the "beef" is coated with sauce.
  • Turn off heat and serve warm. I served my Beijing Beef with noodles. I always order Lo Mein with my Bejing Beef when I visit Panda Express.



Food Explora Cooking Notes:
Some Beijing Beef recipes call for HOISIN SAUCE. I did not have any in my pantry. Therefore, I improvised and used the Teryaki Sauce I had in my kitchen.
I used the juice from my Escovitch Pickled Sauce as part of the Beijing sauce because it is more flavorful and adds a bit of heat. However, you can use white cane vinegar.

    I’m always scared of trying that vegan look-alike meat. Most of the time, it’s disappointing, but for the sake of our precious planet, we must find alternatives. Some are alright, like this Amazon, one I still have to try! Who knows, maybe it will surprise me! It certainly looks good on your plate!
