Wow. This is freaking excellent! One of the best meals we’ve had in a long time.
Publix recently had a BOGO on Gardein products. There was only one package of Sizzling Szechuan Beefless Strips left–and I can see why.
Make sure you follow the cooking instructions because this will be key to get the ideal texture. We went with the toaster oven instructions and used a little extra browning time (broiler setting) at the end. The result was crunchy, tasty beef strips that were outstanding.
We steamed basmati rice and threw the strips over the rice. The package says it has three servings, but it’s two generous servings.
I wish there was more sauce, so I could soak the basmati rice in it. As it was, the sauce packet was intense and flavorful.
This tastes like a menu item from a great vegetarian restaurant. Next time we’ll throw in broccoli and cauliflower in the steamer with the rice.
Five out of five stars.
