DIRECTIONS

  • Rehydrate TVP -- boil 7/8 cups of water (or beef bouillon for a more beefy taste) pour over TVP, let sit about 5 minutes to soak up wetness.
  • Spread on a plate (will help it cool faster than if it is in a bowl).
  • Season with steak seasoning (don't be stingy! I use Lawry's or the one from Omaha Steaks).
  • Set in freezer for 1/2 hour (to help the TVP be cooler to the touch when you're handling it).
  • Put in a mixing bowl.
  • Add corn meal, then egg beaters, mix (with hands, get on in there!).
  • Add flour, mix (it should look weird and yellow-y, that's fine).
  • Press into 4 burger patties on a PAM-sprayed piece of food-wrap (to help it not stick after freezing; use a burger press if you have one, if not, use your hands, but try and get it nice and tight).
  • Wrap up, and put in the freezer (to help them freeze together and keep shape).
  • Heat on medium heat (or lower) in a frypan, or on the Foreman Grill for about 4-5 minutes.
