The time has come for me to finally try these famous Next Level Meat Burgers
Warning: if you don't like the look and taste of bovine meat, this burger could be shocking at first. It definitely looks like meat, both for the texture and the red beet juice , way too similar to blood so the imitation is uncanny. I found them easier to cook in the pan as they are extremely thick, not fragile and crumbly like other veg burgers can be sometimes, even though they require a bit more time (8-10 minutes approx to get uniformly done). Exactly like true meat burgers, they ooze greasy oil as you cook them( I didn't use any oil or butter just to see how they worked when grilled), and this could lead them to be more easily prone to get burnt so you need to stir them constantly. The taste is 95% meat. Champignon mushrooms and soy proteins definitely give them an ironish-fat aftertaste which resembles meat, but slightly bitter at the same time, which is the reason for the 5% missing because, despite the spices included,it tastes exactly like when the mince has not been salted enough, so I'd advise to add some salt, pepper or other spices while cooking if you feel the same. Anyway, it's an overall excellent product, very nutritive, and I'll definitely buy it again. 3€ at Lidl.
