Quorn 2 Peppered Steaks
Advantages: Taste good, Pepper is a nice addition,
Disadvantages: Nothing like actual steak, but I didn't eat it for that reason
While at my mother in laws a couple of weeks ago she said she had got me and my husband these to try for lunch, so naturally we obliged and they were not as bad as I thought they were going to be.
I don't like the quorn burgers, they are very rubbery, and these looked similar when uncooked but with peppery bits on top, so I wasn't holding out much hope.
I'm not sure of the price of these, as I haven't seen these in Sainsburys but I imagine based on other quorn products that they would be around £2.00 to £3.00.
On the Quorn website it describes these as "Deliciously succulent Quorn steaks topped with green and red peppers and cracked black peppercorns." I would say that is a fair description.
The steaks are made from the same mycroprotein as other Quorn products which is some sort of fungi.
I think you can cook these in the oven, I forgot to ask my mother in law what she did, but I'm sure there are directions on the packet.
The Ingredients (taken from the Quorn website) are as follows:
Quorn steak (92%) [mycoprotein*, rehydrated free range egg white, onion, flavouring, partially hydrogenated rape, palm & palm kernel oils, milk protein, roasted barley malt extract, tapioca starch, gelling agent: pectin], pepper coating (water, wheat dextrose, black pepper, salt, green & red peppers, sunflower oil, gelling agent: xanthan gum). 48% of product.
Nutritional Information according to the Quorn website is:
Per Steak - 107kcal energy, 11.2g protein, 3.7g fat, 3.9g fibre, 7.3g carbohydrates.
The steaks themselves, actually looked quite appetising when cooked. (Some meat substitutes can look very weird). You could see all the different peppers on top, which made it look more interesting. The taste was actually quite nice, I wouldn't say fantastic and nothing compared to actual steak, but good. You could taste the pepper, and it gave the steak a good kick to it, it did taste like most other Quorn products (hard to describe), it's a fairly bland taste but the pepper made it nice. The texture was soft and a little rubbery but nowhere near the rubberiness (no other word for it) of other Quorn products.
All in all I did enjoy these and would buy them again. I wouldn't recommend them as an alternative to an actual steak but as their own product and as a product for vegetarians I would recommend them.

Summary: A good product, I would eat again.
