Going Beyond Meat
In 2012, the number of Australians with a vegetarian diet (or almost-all vegetarian diet, you know who you are) was 1.7 million. By 2016, that number had risen by 400,000 – that’s more than 270 Aussies switching to a vegetarian diet every single day over four years.
Many places around the world are embracing a less-meat, or completely meat-free lifestyle, but us Aussies are a competitive lot, so it’s no surprise we’ve been at the head of the pack in this global cultural shift.
Meanwhile, 2012 was a big year for Ribs & Burgers, too. We had recently opened our first restaurant in Neutral Bay, and were well on our way to expanding into new locations around Australia. Our history was in butchery, in appreciating the finest cuts of meat, and cooking them in ways that brought out the flavours and textures of perfectly cooked burgers and ribs.
But equally so, our dedication has always been to crafting the best burgers in the land, and as we have watched Aussies everywhere embrace vegan and vegetarian lifestyles, we’ve also been working on meat-free burgers of our own.
We have long offered vegetarian options, but nothing before has been quite like this – a meat patty without the meat. Beyond Meat.
Our new Beyond Meat Burger Range
Beyond Original Burger
We’d like you to not-meat our Beyond Original Burger, a burger that looks and tastes just like our Original Burger, except with one important difference – it’s completely meat-free.
It’s got all the usual suspects – lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles, and our extra special Aunty Joan’s Pink Sauce. It’s served on our bakery-inspired bun, which is always just the right mix of springy and crunchy.
But instead of our usual beef centre, we’re grilling up a delicious vegan plant-based patty that’s so tasty you’ll eat the whole thing before you even think to take a photo for your Instagram feed. You get more protein than in a standard beef patty, no soy or GMOs, and no cute baby cows haunting your dreams tonight.
Beyond Old School Burger
Once upon a time, some meat lovers thought it was funny to call anything vegetarian ‘rabbit food’. But once those same carnivores set their eyes on this feast, they’ll be too busy stuffing their faces to laugh… not that it was ever a particularly witty joke in the first place.
The Beyond Old School Burger is one of the newest members on our menu, and one of the last meals you’d ever guess would be vegetarian. This stack of goodness includes a juicy plant-based patty, layered with a thick wedge of American cheese, and topped with onion, pickles, mustard, BBQ sauce, and aioli. Served on a perfectly crisped boutique-style bun, it’s a thing of beauty.
Not to mention, it takes 93% less land, and 99% less water to create Beyond Meat patties than it does to create beef patties. It might not be rabbit food, but tiny fluffy creatures will certainly appreciate your eco-friendly dinner decision.
What is Beyond Meat?
But if it looks like meat, smells like meat, tastes like meat and even feels like meat, how is it not meat?
The guys behind Beyond Meat didn’t discover this patty by accident. In fact, more than 50 scientists and PHDs got together to recreate a meat patty using the latest technology humans have to offer.
This included an ‘electric nose’, which analysed the molecules that create that distinctive aroma and taste of real meat, and a state-of-the-art ‘texture lab’, which studied the physical feel of a beef patty.
Between the scientists and the science, Beyond Meat has crafted patties from plants that are virtually indistinguishable from the real thing. For example, beetroot is the source of the meaty red colour, and coconut oil and potato starch recreate that juicy, chewy texture. And did you know that pea protein is a thing? It is, and not only that, you actually get more protein from a plant-based patty than a beef one.
And we thought our research process to find the right beef patty recipe was extensive!
