(You Can’t) Beat This Meat!

Published on September 11, 2008 by   ·   20 Comments Pin It

Father, forgive me. I have sinned. It’s been 31 years since my last confession.

I cannot stop loving my Field Roast Sausages. I want to everything with them. They are sheer perfection in an animal-free casing. Divinity. Honestly, I just love Field Roast in general. I love their sausages, I love their roast, I love their deli slices… I frankly want to rub my body in a vat of Field Roast ANYTHING. Full of protein, low-fat, and excellent for an energy boost, Field Roast is officially GirlieGirl Army’s favorite faux meat product. If we had awards, they would get one.

Perusing the plentiful aisles of a supermarket one may not think there is a global food crisis, however it is becoming clearer that current practices in western cultures like the United States have an impact on how people all over the world eat. Consumers are examining their personal role by looking at different ways of sustainable eating. Veganism is one political food choice that has gotten a lot of attention recently, with celebrities like Oprah Winfrey and Natalie Portman praising its virtues from weight loss to environmental impacts to the ethical treatment of animals. So for food maker David Lee, of the vegan Field Roast Grain Meat Company, it means business is booming and our tummy’s are ever-so-grateful for it.

Although Field Roast tastes like the most meaty and hearty slab o’ flesh you ever consumed; the base is actually steamed wheat protein, used for centuries and invented by Buddhist monks looking for a non-animal protein. Field Roast flavors are inspired by the charcuterie traditions of Europe, with a focus on bold earthy flavors like garlic, wine, vegetables and spices.

Go ahead, do anyyyyyyything with them. You can find Field Roast at your local Whole Foods and many other retailers, check their site for more goody goody gum drops. For real, even if you have to work to find these – it’s SO worth it.


FIELD ROAST SAUSAGE SKEWERS: Field Roast Sausages are great on a grill in this simple meal solution for the summer! Use fresh or roasted vegetables and herbs!


  • Vegetables: Onion, Bell Peppers, Zucchini, Mushrooms, Tomatoes, etc.
  • Sausage Field Roast Sausages: Italian, Mexican Chipotle, or Smoked Apple Sage. (Our favorite at GGA is Apple Sage!!)
  • Sauce of choice: BBQ or (Holy) Mole. We love this BBQ Sauce Recipe.


  • Skewer cut ingredients along with sausages.
  • Brush with oil
  • Grill for 2 mins each side and smother with sauce if desired, then get down on that shit and eat!


REUBEN SANDWICH A traditional Reuben sandwich, sure to delight anyone who has ever enjoyed a good Reuben (Studdard).



  • Spread slices of rye bread lightly with “mayo” or Thousand Island dressing, sprinkle garlic and peppercorn.
  • Add a heaping layer of sauerkraut on one slice.
  • Top with Smoked Tomato Field Roast (optional: saute or grill in oil) and a slice of cheese (optional).
  • Put sandwich together and lightly grill on each side until cheese is melted and both sides are crisp and brown. Stuff your piggy face.

    Delicious! I love the alternative for the Reuben!!

  2. Ok, can I just say that I’m OBSESSED with Field Roast sausages thanks to you? I can’t imagine life before them, and now with that scrumptious Reuben recipe, I’m a 4-lifer. Yummeee!

  3. Emma says:

    These are the best vegan ‘meats’ out there – and the best part is that they’re made of whole grains so they can help me switch up my “all-soy-all-the-time” routine. Thanks for the great recipes!

    i cannot wait to chow down on this. i have always LOVEd reubens and, until now, made tasty do with mushrooms as my meat substitute. thank you, chloe!!

  5. Thank you for the great recipes! I adore their Mexican Chipotle flavor – especially in soups. Better yet, I even got my carnivore husband to switch!

    Another easy and great thing to do with the snausages (as I like to call them) is chop ’em up with some greens (any work, but I love swiss rainbow chard) and a can of tomato sauce (chopped tomato’s or pasta sauce works just as well) and saute. Seriously hearty, seriously fast, and seriously DELICIOUS!!!!!! A perfect Fall or Winter meal.

  7. I am HUNGRY and stuck in the phoenix airport. Wishing you were here to cook this for me. :( grumble..grumble…

  8. cokane says:

    Really when someone doesn’t understand after
    that its up to other people that they will assist, so here it occurs.

  12. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of
    your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it
    better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or
    2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
