“Wow, this is succulent as f***”
That was the first thought that popped into my mind after my first bite of Redefine Meat’s 3-D-printed flank steak. Redefine Meat is a Israel-based start-up that produces a robust line of 3D-printed plant-based meat alternatives, called New-Meat. The company did a live cooking demo and was sampling its beef flank steak and pork bratwurst at Plant-Based World in London, and Future Foodie had the opportunity to try both.
If these hors d’oeuvres were offered to me with no information or context, and I would have assumed that these small cuts of alternative meat were animal-derived. Not only was the appearance spot on, but the texture was completely unlike any other plant-based meat alternative I have tried. It was fleshy (but not in a gross way), and juicy. Plant-based meats are often dry simply do not mimic the texture and mouthfeel of real meat.
In addition to the vegan 3D-printed beef flank and pork bratwurst we tried, the company offers 3D-printed tenderloin, lamb kabab, burgers, sausages, and more.
