11 Plant Butcher Creations That Will Change How You Look at Meat
Plant Butchers are a new band of butchers using plant proteins to show the world the art of plant-based carnivory. Warning: Your meat might never be the same
1. Korean Ribs @ The Herbivorous Butcher (Minneapolis)
Zagat recently called these sugar-glazed, slow-smoked ribs “the gateway drug to meatless meats”
2. Fried Meatball and Mozzarella Hoagies @ The Butcher’s Son (Berkeley, CA)
Taste the magic of turning plants into meat and cheese with this glorious sandwich, named one of the best in the entire Bay Area
3. Rachel on Rye @ Atlas Meat-Free Deli (Hollywood, FL)
You’ll become a believer in plant-only pastrami after tasting the Rachel — 6 ounces of handcrafted pastrami, artisan vegan cheese, signature mustard dressing, and traditional German + Latin sauerkraut on marbled Jewish Rye. Salud!!!
4. Pulled Pork Prepper @ No Evil Foods (Asheville, NC)
You can now pig out on pig-free pork thanks to the plant meat geniuses at No Evil Foods
5. Späck Ham @ Sgaia Foods (UK)
This small but sophisticated shop is turning plant butchery into a true art with their masterly creations, like this killer prosciutto-style ham.
6. Maple Bacon Donut Fried Chicken Sandwiches @ The Butcher’s Son
All plant-powered and topped with a peach
7. BBQ Sliders @ Monk’s Meats
8. 6 Foot Party Sub @ The Herbivorous Butcher (Minneapolis)
Ok, they made this for Moby, but you can indulge in mini-versions of the Italian Cold Cut and Turkey Dill Havarti, among a million other deli treats, at their Minneapolis shop any day.
9. Ground Beet Burgers @ Yam Chops (Toronto)
If you’ve never experienced the bizarre pleasure of biting into bloody beet meat, this is the place for you.
10. Hand-Rolled Donuts @ The Butcher’s Son
There are less than 5 shops in the whole country that hand-roll their donuts, and The Butcher’s Son is one of them. They bake ’em all, including the crazy-popular Bacon Cannoli, hot and fresh every day.
11. KFC-Style Double Down @ The Herbivorous Butcher
Not a menu item yet, but this plant-only take on KFC’s infamous sandwich was so popular at a recent food festival, the plant meat masters at Herbivorous Butcher just might make it a staple.
