Plant-based Beef - Steak and Strips

Quorn: Vegetarian Peppered Steaks - ⭐⭐⭐⭐☆ (not vegan)

Chilled / 2pk / 196g / Approx £3

These are currently the only vegetarian steaks that I've tried. The peppery flavour is great and the steak itself is very tender. If you were trying to mimic an actual steak these would probably go down as being way too tender. I mean, the tenderness makes them quite nice to eat, but it doesn't feel like you are eating an actual steak. However, we've had them many times and always enjoyed them for what they are. The biggest downside is that they are not vegan.

Taste & Glory: No-Beef Strips - ⭐⭐⭐⭐☆

Chilled / 

Like the steaks above, these were also very tender, which makes them less beef-like than if they had a tougher/firmer texture. Still they were pretty decent and I have no real complaints. I used these once straight from the bag and the next time I warmed them up in a pan. They are definitely better when they are warmed. To be honest, beef strips are not really something that is high on my list of things to buy as the meals I tend to eat are not really beefy, but if I needed some beef strips, these would be fine. Overall, they were fine, but I wasn't blown away by them.
