I have found I am spoiled by burgers that don't bleed all over my pan (i.e. typical veggie and/or Boca vegan burgers.) I got the Beyond Burger for the 4th and although I'm glad I tried it, it's not exactly my cup of tea. I don't need or want that "sizzling ground beef" thing they're going for.
But I suppose I'm not the target audience, and I'm glad something like this exists for people who need some convincing to give up meat.

Seitan BBQ ribs are really easy and quite good, whether you finish them in the oven or take out to grill. I use this recipe-

I've tried the Impossible burger - three times - at three different restaurants. At one place it was too salty and a bit under cooked. but It was fine at the other two places. No complaints.
However, at one of the places - they already had a vegan burger - which they now took off the menu. It was a bean burger and I liked it better than the Impossible.
I see the Impossible burger more for new vegetarians or for people who are just trying to avoid red meat for health reasons.
I just got turned on to this article.
Now I don't know what to think. I wasn't in love with the Impossible burger anyway - do i may never get another.

I found the Impossible Burger mingling with ground beef! Someone who doesn't pay attention to labels could conceivably buy and cook it without much more than a "mmmm, there's something different about that burger...and it's awfully lean"
I tried the Beast burger and there was something about it I didn't care for. My son loved it

I've only had the Beyond Meat burger - I think its called the Beast or something like that. I've been looking for the Impossible Burger for a while but I haven't seen it in any of the stores I usually go to.
But during BBQ season I tried lots of these patties and I did like Beyond Meat the best. Field Roast was pretty good too. but about the only one I would regularly eat might be Dr. Praegers. Doesn't look and taste like a beef burger, but if fits on a bun and is the healthiest of the bunch.

I like the Beyond Meat burgers when I have a craving, but they are so full of oil I try to stay away.I am working on a WFPB version at home, no oil. It would be great if they came up with a less fattening one!

|silva||I had the Impossible burger, and it wasn't 'bloody', but it was incredibly good! You (I?) could tell it wasn't ground meat, but it had the density, and a similar juiciness to it that you don't get with whole plant foods. It's expensive but something I would love to get at a good restaurant!|

|Tom||I wouldn't be grossed-out by a "bloody"- looking burger, so long as no animals were harmed in the making of it... but for me, how it looks is the last thing on my list of food desires- way down below nutrition, ethics, flavor, texture, aroma, and cost. I've been quite happy with the veggie burgers I've had, even the ones that aren't convincingly "meaty" at all. A truly juicy veggie burger would be nice though.|

I've seen beet burgers in recipe blogs. They look a bit red and bloody, because beetroot (see below). I find that quite funnt as they're not really even trying to be meat, it's just veg. Like peeled grapes aren't really trying to be eyeballs at Halloween and everyone knows it. It's just kid level 'eew'.
No objection to a mock meat that 'bleeds' in principle, but I really don't see the point in deliberately making a product that genuinely pretends to bleed blood if it brings nothing else to the table (great pun right? ;-P ) The mock meat frozen quarter-pounder burgers I get from the super market are 'juicy' like a burger once cooked, and perfect for it. That adds something. But it's brown juicy, not bloody red.

Inside The Strange Science Of The Fake Meat That 'Bleeds'
This is interesting! The concept grosses me out a bit but as long as it's vegan I'll try it.
Would you eat a burger that 'bleeds'?
