Today I am reviewing the like smoked sausage from Like Meat, and I am sorry it’s a day late, I totally spaced yesterday. As I said last week, Like Meat states that they create plant based versions of meat products that have the same flavour and satisfaction as eating the real thing. Their focus is making products that are healthier for the body and the planet. They source their GMO free soybeans in a way that avoids rainforest deforestation. I bought the pack from Tesco for £3.30 which had four sausages in it.
The sausages come in a plastic tray with film and a paper sleeve. The paper part of the packaging is FSC certified and the plastic tray is made from recycled materials. The sausages are fairly thin, and quite long. They have a pinkish red colouring and you can see the skin coating them. They smell both porky and smokey, like a hot dog. I ate three of them with ketchup and cut one up then threw it in a chowder. They taste exactly like a hot dog, I was expecting a bit more when they call it a smoked sausage, more complexity of flavour or something like that. Why not just call them hot dogs? The skin is slightly crispy, with soft textured sausage in the middle, I really liked the texture.
They tasted decent, easy to cook, nice texture.
I was expecting more, not sure they are worth the price.
I would definitely have them again, just not at that price. I’d like to try them in a buttered hot dog bun with ketchup, mustard and fried onions. They also make a BBQ chicken I would be interested in trying. Last week I reviewed their curry chicken so if you fancy having a read of that you can click right here.
I would rate the like smoked sausage a 3.5 out of 5 stars.
Over and out.
