Now for the “juiciest” bit of this review: the flavor. Juicy Marbles promised a filet mignon, and while that is not quite what I got, I was still pleased. Classically, filets have a milder flavor than most cuts of beef, so the fact that it didn’t deliver a slap-in-the-face steak flavor didn’t surprise me. The flavor, while not completely convincing, was still beef-like and tasty; even meat-eating family members enjoyed it. The crust was nicely browned and crispy, while the interior was soft and fell apart, with a texture not unlike corned beef. Juicy Marbles truly shines when mixed in with something unassuming, and when mixed with rice, the filets passed completely as a meat product.
While not yet perfected, Juicy Marbles filet mignon is a promising start in the world of plant-based steaks and given the alternative (real cow meat), it is certainly the better option for the environment, vegetarians, or at least something fun to try.
