Gardein Be'f tips
Are they great, no.
Bit if cooked properly, they have a similar 'chew' as meat, and absorb the marinade or sauce being used. I also use them on the grill when doing a 'shish-kabob' type of a dish. Being vegetarian ( wife vegan) forces me to be as creative as possible, and always looking for new products to fill certain voids and avoid being limited by having the same thing over and over. Most dont taste like their non-vegetarian counterpart, but can be used in similar ways which allows me to enjoy similar dishes as you guys the best I can.
