Meatless ‘Impossible Burger’ is the real deal, we tried it ourselves

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - The Impossible Burger may not be made of meat, but it’s pretty darn close.

The patties deliver the same flavor, aroma, and beefiness found from cows, the only difference is they are made from plants and they’re taking the food industry by storm.

The product was released by Impossible Foods, founded in 2011 by Patrick O. Brown, M.D., Ph.D.

It picked up traction in 2016, beating out other alternatives for how closely it resembled and tasted like actual beef.

The burger is a top five seller at CityWorks in Pinecrest, Executive Chef Brian Broadwater said.

“It cooks just like a burger, it’s kind of scary.”

“It’s easy to have skepticism at first," Broadwater added, “It’s almost like you don’t want to believe it when you first try it. But when you bite into it, it makes you a believer.”

CityWorks isn’t the first restaurant to join the wave, Michael Symon’s B-Spot is also on board.
