Wow. I'm totally blown away. I never thought the day will come when @Dan and I would agree on culinary choices or reviews.
Nah, he's saying that he too gave it a homemade try :P

Bottom line - it's no substitute for the real thing ... for those that want the meat (and meat fat) flavor, there's no way this thing can pass for it.
Now do cholent.

After the recent posts and now that's it's available in stop and shop, I decided to give it a homemade try.

Bottom line - it's no substitute for the real thing. For those that might like their meat with sauces and dressings, it might just barely pass. But for those that want the meat (and meat fat) flavor, there's no way this thing can pass for it.
Did you add anything to it (eggs, spices, etc.)?

My wife did whatever she did. I suggested that she season it just like she seasons ground beef for burgers and for Arayes.

Interesting. My experience was a very similar but not exact taste and texture. It was delicious though. My friend who had two of them said he felt nauseous after.

TIL Arayes isn't the same thing as עריות. Had no idea that's what it's called.

Imo beyond is remarkably close enough to the real deal.
Best part for me is that it's available everywhere, making kosher travel much easier.

3 out of 6 of us felt queasy after having beyond burgers.

Served it to a group without telling them what it was. 4 out of 5 thought it was better then the local boxed frozen type burgers.

Anything is better than boxed, frozen burgers.

Not everything. Not the boxed, frozen, turkey burgers.
