I'm a carnivore cutting back on red meat for health reasons and I accept that fake meat won't be exactly the same as meat, but it's clever how meaty this is. Impressed.

Delicious 😋

5 stars

Eh, bad reviews??? All the vegan foodies I follow on social media are going crazy about these and I can see why. We followed cooking instructions to the T, had with chips, onion rings, peas and coleslaw, delicious!! Get amongst it and try these out, soooo nice! Well done tesco.

Loved it

4 stars

I don't understand the negative reviews. It tasted pretty good to me but as a life long vegetarian I had no preconceived ideas of what a steak should taste like.

unbearable smell

2 stars

As the other reviews have said, the smell is just unbearable! I didn't think it could be that bad so tried giving it a go but it was just awful! I couldn't finish it. Plant Chef has a great range but I won't buy this again.

Nobody is going to be fooled into thinking this is

5 stars

Nobody is going to be fooled into thinking this is real steak, it's basically just a big dense veggie burger with some garlic butter, but it's a tasty way to make a high protein veggie meal. Don't know what all the bad reviews are about, though I agree with the guy who recommended not eating it in bed.


3 stars

This was ok, but I was so dissapointed that I only got 1 in the pack? The taste is quite nice and meaty, I felt it was a bit rich towards the end and I only had half a portion. I probably wouldnt buy again, although would be nice with a peppercorn sauce, so i might reconsider that.

I bought this before seeing the reviews below and

4 stars

I bought this before seeing the reviews below and was worried that it wouldn’t taste nice. I’ve tasted a few different vegan steaks before but this is the best one yet. Make sure that you pan fry it and then cook it in the oven - follow the instructions to a t and you’ll enjoy it! Don’t be fooled by the negative reviews below, me and my partner found it really tasty with the garlic sauce on top!

It's good! Hits the spot

4 stars

Really good! Definitely need to pan fry it before putting it in the oven as per the instructions but it's really good. Would recommend to a friend, lover, enemy & tesco employee.

I have never felt the desire to write a review on something before, but this was so disgusting that I had to give my two cents about it. Forget about the awful taste, it is the smell that absolutely ruined it for me. As I was eating in bed (do not judge me on that, it is lockdown and the kitchen is occupied 24/7, so bed it is), I spilled some of the fat from the steak on my sheets. I tried cleaning it but it did not work and the smell was so overpowering that I had to change my sheets. Unfortunately, the disgusting smell had also soaked into the mattress, which I tried cleaning for 10 minutes straight with no luck. As I am sitting here and writing this, I could still smell this horrific stench and I wonder if my life could go any worse. Moral of the story is: don't you ever buy something that is called "fake steak"... aaaaand don't eat in bed so that you wouldn't end up like me. Peace out.
