Something I Tried: Gardein Beefless Tips

Here's another Gardein review coming at ya! I don't often have mock beef, unless it's a veggie burger, which even then isn't too often. Plus now that I've been spoiled with the Beyond Burger, I may never want another brand again! 

These beefless tips are bite-sized vegan beef from the freezer section that you prepare in a skillet with a fair amount of oil (as per the package instructions). These were ready in a little more than 10 minutes, and then I served them with some spicy sesame green beans, jasmine rice, and lots of green onion! These came out a bit more oily than I like, probably because of the suggested amount of oil.  Overall the texture and flavor were good, but these definitely aren't as tasty as the Gardein Mandarin Crispy Chik'n. I had leftovers and the next day before I popped them into the microwave I took a bite...big mistake. The cold texture was awful and gooey! I was worried about how the reheated version would be, but it was totally fine! Overall, I would get this again if I was really craving some vegan beef, but it wouldn't be my go-to.
