What are vegan beef cubes?
I've found a recipe for beefless tips n rice which calls for vegan beef cubes. What are they and where do I find them?
This is what I use, although there are other brands:
You can find vegetarian beef bouillon at Whole Foods, many small organic markets, and through several websites.
You can also sub dark vegetable stock (such as mushroom-onion stock) in most recipes.
You could use Better than Bouillon vegan beef base (make sure it's the vegan one, they also have meat bases): http://www.superiortouch.com/retail/products/better-than-bouillon (should be able to find it in your grocery store with other broths)
or Edward and Sons vegan beef cubes: http://store.veganessentials.com/natural-vegan-chicken-and-beef-bouillon-cubes-by-edward--sons-p2122.aspx (found on Vegan Essentials)
There are also a couple other brands out there. Take a look in your store broth aisle, and also online.
eta: same time as mdv!
Great minds, AC, great minds.
Even if you did like Black Swan.
The recipe sounds good. The vegan bases are exactly the same as the cubes, but the flavor is superior. There is a conversion on the side of the jar for how many to use in lieu of a hard cube.
My only question would be, isn't that going to be extremely salty if it calls for 2 c vegetable broth AND un-beef bouillon??
eta: Um... wait a second ... do they mean like veggie steak strips or something? Gardein makes meatless beef tips. http://www.gardein.com/products.php?t=frozen&p=2
Gardein makes beef cubes (not bouillon), I know there are others, but I've never been a fan of vegan beef substitutes.
