Cooking Instructions

Treat your Very Good meat the right way. Learn how to cook it the Bean Butcher approved way for ultimate plant-based deliciousness.

While all our products are pre-cooked and can be consumed directly out of the package, we recommend heating these ones up for best results.

Burgers

Grilling: Grill for 4-6 minutes turning occasionally. For best results use a basting liquid. We like to use 50% BBQ Sauce, 30% rootbeer, 20% oil, salt and pepper. Baste the patties each time that they are turned to ensure that they stay moist and delicious. Ensure burgers are piping hot before serving.

Oven: Set oven to 375C brush with oil, salt and pepper. Cook for 10-12 minutes turning halfway through the cooking time. You can marinate the burgers beforehand with your favourite marinade for a different flavour each time.

Stovetop: Brush both sides of the patties with your favourite marinade. We like to use 50% BBQ Sauce, 30% rootbeer, 20% oil, salt and pepper. Cook for 4-6 mins turning halfway through the cooking time to baste. Ensure burgers are piping hot before serving.

Stuffed Beast

Oven: Remove packaging and cheese cloth (watch our co-founder, James, show the best way to do this on our Facebook page). Baste your beast to keep it nice and juicy using your favourite recipe or our very good baste:

  • 1c veggie stock
  • 1/4c vegan butter
  • 1 sprig each thyme and rosemary
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • salt and pepper

Cook the beast uncovered on a baking pan at 300F (150C) for 45-60 minutes, basting every 15 minutes to keep everything nice and moist. Make sure the center of the beast is above 160F (73C). Remove from the oven once nicely roasted, let cool for a few minutes, serve, and enjoy!

Roast Beast

Oven: Warm your beast in the oven at 300F for 20 minutes until heated through. Let cool for a few minutes, carve, and enjoy!
