Vegan Beef Makes Its Debut in Dallas, Many Texans Upset

By  | 

Vegan brisket? No, no, no, this is just plain wrong on so many levels! While we understand that many folks cannot eat red meat due to diet restrictions, illness, and other factors, we also believe that beef is a unique part of the food group that cannot be duplicated or replicated using other food materials.

What is Beef?

This is what real beef looks like, and there’s no room in Texas for pretend meat. Unfortunately, beef has no real substitute, even if you’re on a strict diet. Imitation beef just doesn’t quite do it justice.

It’s a well-known fact that we Texans do love our beef. Not only do we raise it, we are well known for cooking it, too. Chili, Bar-B-Que, and beef stew have competitions year-round in the Lone Star State just to prove who makes this edible gold the best.  Restaurants in the Texas hold contests to see who can eat the biggest steak in an hour. Not everyone can win that blue ribbon or that free meal, but attempting it can have its benefits also. It is so juicy, tender, and deliciously…Texan.

Chicken fried steak, brisket, tacos, and beef ribs, just to name a few of our favorites. There’s nothing you can do to beef that’s wrong. Roast it, grill it, fry it, and your choices are rare, medium rare, medium, medium well and well, or anything in between.  Disguised tofu in the shape of real meat just ain’t Texan.

Vegan beef stew? In Texas? Reminds us of the game on Sesame Street, one of these things just doesn’t belong.

What we mean is that real beef stew is made with the finest Texas beef. Now if you are one who chooses to be vegan or vegetarian, you deserve to be respected. And, we certainly do. What doesn’t make sense to us is that if a person is against eating meat of any type or cannot due to necessity, then why try to shape it and add food coloring to it so that it looks similar to what you are totally against in the first place? This is very confusing.
