Today we’re cooking three different types of burgers- real beef burgers, beyond burgers and impossible burger. We are going to see which is best- Real burger vs. fake burger.
Fake Burger Showdown
We are featuring something that has never been seen on our channel, FAKE MEAT. Yes, it’s crazy. We never thought it would happen either. We have gotten a couple people ask us if we think that the impossible burgers or beyond burgers really do hold a candle to the real thing. So today, we put it to the test! Here are the three contendors:
- 100% real beef burger. We hand made these burgers out of 80/20 ground chuck.
- Beyond Burger. A plant based patty with a bunch of ingredients.
- Impossible Burger. Also a plant based patty with a bunch of ingredients.
To (hopefully) create an equal playing field, we seasoned each quarter pound burger with a little bit of salt. We cooked the burgers on our Blazing Bull grill to an internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the burgers were cooked, we assembled hem all exactly the same as well. Bun, burger, ketchup, mustard, cheese, bun.
This burger tasted a little dry but it was hard to tell whether is was fake or not. It was comparable in taste and texture to a black bean burger. Definitely a good alternative to beef, if that’s your type of thing!
This burger was chewy and had a weird soy like taste. Not a fan. Enough said.
Real Beef Burger
Ahh, the real burger. Maybe we are biased. Okay, we are biased. But there’s no denying that the real beef burger is juicier and more flavorful!

Although they tried, there’s just really no replacement for the real thing. Real beef burgers are only one ingredient and knock it out of the park by terms of texture and flavor. We agree though, that the impossible burgers are a good alternative if that is what you are looking for. As far as the beyond burgers, well let’s just say we will not be willingly eating another one of those anytime soon!
