Slovenian startup, Juicy Marbles has launched its new plant-based whole cut of filet mignon with marbled “fat.”
According to press release, Juicy Marbles uses patent-pending “Meat-o-matic Reverse Grinder TM 9000” technology. It re-creates muscle texture and fat by aligning and layering fibres of its ingredients. The ingredients list includes soy protein, wheat protein and sunflower oil.
"The biggest challenge was getting the right fiber alignment and intramuscular fat structure—the marbling,” Juicy Marbles co-founder Luka Sincek said in the statement. “The most expensive steaks in the world are known for their lush marbling. It takes a lot of energy and a rare breed of cow to attain that. With plant meat, we control it and, thus, over time, can scale up our steak production and bring down the price. Eventually, we'll be able to make the most premium meats attainable for everyone.”
The company recommends cooking it on the pan for just a few minutes until a brown crust appears while the centre of the steak remains soft.
The steak is available to order on the company's website. A 600 grams of its raw, unseasoned tenderloin costs $150. The package will feed
