“Better Than Beef” Meatless Meatloaf – Food Wishes ctm magazine

You’ll be the judge of whether this delicious meatless meatloaf is really, “better than beef,” but it’s definitely cheaper, better for you nutritionally, and probably better environmentally, which are just some of the reasons I hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy!

    This actually sounds really good, but I think that every time someone tries to make a comparison to meat it makes it sound less appealing. I'm a meat eater who enjoys a well cooked vegetarian meal, but the constant need to be "meat adjacent" is actually a massive turn off. Let the dish stand on it's own, being what it is, instead of constantly trying to pretend it's something it isn't.

    i have been making and eating a mushroom and lentil based meat alternative for quite a while. usually we add some walnuts in there too. most often we use it to make lasagna or burritos

    Aw.. RIP to one of the greats 🙁

  • ano ne on January 28, 2022

    A recipe to troll meat evangelists and vegetarians alike. Masterfully done!

  • i doc on January 28, 2022

    Kudos to Chef John for the shout-out to the late, great Meat Loaf! (Rest in Peace) "Two outta three ain't bad……"

  • Jennifer Mann-Hunter on January 28, 2022

    may i suggest adding some chestnut puree and a 1/2 cup of cooked, leftover risotto. its flavour and a binder all in one!

  • Nvortex on January 28, 2022

    I don't care because I eat anything but you should have specified that this isn't a vegan recipe at the beginning for the people that will expect something like that from the title

  • ULTRAZILLA! on January 28, 2022

    Interesting recipe. Odd to see a meatless meatloaf with elements of meat, but I'm into it, lol.

  • R. McBride on January 28, 2022

    Hehe… I'm in the kitchen watching this. Hubs and boys are standing behind me, shaking their heads and saying, "DON'T even think about it, Mom!". LOL! Nice try, Chef. Gold star to you for really trying to sell it, but I'd get run out of Dodge… I think having to drown the thing in gravy – twice – was a dead giveaway. 🙂

  • E G on January 28, 2022

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are eating way less meat and I appreciate all your advice and amazing recipes!

  • Admiral_Greybush on January 28, 2022

    I cant watch this channel anymore, 🤢

  • Terrakinetic on January 28, 2022

    Beware if you have gout.

  • Mayday Garden on January 28, 2022

    My daughter is vegetarian. I don't think there would be a major flavor difference if I used BTB Roasted Garlic base. Gonna try it!

  • leon14344 on January 28, 2022

    It is absolutely 100% not better for the environment. It's actually significantly worse.

    That said, looks good.

  • Go Away on January 28, 2022

    Looks interestingly tasty. Unfortunately it'd never get finished in my kitchen as I'd never be able to resist to temptation to drop a steak or pork chop in with the browned mushrooms and have it that way.

  • darkgrape on January 28, 2022

    "Better for you" ummm, the more processed a food the worse it is for you! Better "environmentally" LOL This is highly processed food created and manufactured in a factory. What a joke, stick to the kitchen "Chef"

  • Henry Chinaski on January 28, 2022

    shame on you for promoting this garbage.

  • Henry Chinaski on January 28, 2022

    its not better for the environment and you know it.

  • Lighten Up on January 28, 2022

    Thanks Chef John! This one is a must try. Looks delicious!

  • Benjamin Fisher on January 28, 2022

    Had to laugh at "severely" browned hahahahaha

  • coolcat8b on January 28, 2022

    I will try this tomorrow, I happen to have all the ingredients on hand (there are no coincidences).
    "We never let the food win." ROFL

    Yeah!!! 👍👍👍👋🙏
    Love this, as a vegetarian, I only need to modify few ingredients!

  • Kevin Smretschnig on January 28, 2022

    I love your channel, I lover your recipes
    But putting in that beef bouillon was absolutely unnecessary and I don't have the slightest clue why anyone would do that if you get the same result in the taste as a whole with some good veggie stock

  • andyct1982 on January 28, 2022

    It was vegan, until you added the eggs, worcestershire sauce and cheese.

  • Kevin Deckard on January 28, 2022

    This looks bad in the making, iffy in the pics, and okay just before plating. I don't think I'd make this one, but I would probably try this if someone else made it. Just not a huge mushroom fan. 🙁

  • Giovanni Zenato on January 28, 2022

    I love that you used the beef base here. I feel omnivores can miss out on a lot of great ingredients and dishes because they get pigeonholed into the vegetarian category. But they can still be good ingredients in dishes with meat, just look at mapo tofu.

    And if you are a vegetarian you can easily swap the beef base for a vegetarian option.

  • bubandlisa on January 28, 2022

    Gotta pass on this 1 as mushrooms make me 🤮 same for chickpeas 🤮
    But ❤ your channel

  • Billy H. on January 28, 2022

    leave the oats out. bad to begin with.

  • Adam Santo on January 28, 2022

    This is the first video I've ever given a 👎
    Why do people insist on trying to popularize slave food?

  • helio2k on January 28, 2022

    Yes! Finally chef John!
    I waited for recipes like that from you!!!

  • Benjamin Dover on January 28, 2022


  • Donald Morris on January 28, 2022

    Nothing is better than beef except perhaps Elk,moose, or Caribou. It May however be as good. We shall see. 😉

  • steve g on January 28, 2022

    At firstI was Curious about the Meatless part.

    Yah Lost me at Mushrooms.

  • Anthony Pegram on January 28, 2022

    A meatless meatloaf, and if you know me, you would know I would do anything for loaf, but I won't do that

    Always love the videos either way

  • K K on January 28, 2022

    How do you know if someone is a vegetarian?

    They remind you every 15 minutes.

  • Last of the Tribe on January 28, 2022

    I absolutely adore mushrooms, so I can totally roll with this. Thank you, Chef John.

  • Belinda Lilac on January 28, 2022

    Better than beef — I thought it would be lamb. LOL.

  • Belinda Lilac on January 28, 2022

    "Better for you nutritionally" — what plant food is more nutritious than beef/meat, weight for weight?
