Revive your favourite meat recipes from the bad old days, whether moose roast, Jamaican patties, Morrocan Goat, or Sauerbratten, it works
Caveat: Prepaed this way TVP does not mimic meat in the sense of tasting ˜just like it. Rather it has the same sort of flavour & texture properties, such that many meat based recipies will work well with it.
Use large chunk TVP, light for most poultry and pork, dark for other meats.
In a pressure cooker combine:
TVP (package) 2 cooking onions 2 or 3 tomatoes (fresh, stewed, or sauce) water to just cover
Oil & spices, as follows -
For poultry olive, light sesame or sunflower oil approx 2 tbsp total thyme, savory, basil &/or other light, sweet herbs
For dark meats dark sesame oil black pepper approx 2 tbsp total sage, rosemary, tarragon &/or other robust herbs 1- 2 tbsp tamari, shoyu or soy sauce worsteschire
Adjustments Mix light/dark oil & spices for intermediate flavours Oil approx 5 tbsp, but adjust oil to oiliness of meat in recipe (less for eg game, more for eg pork)
Options 1 tbsp tamrind paste or concentrate for beef or game
