While plant-based meat alternatives have taken off in the last few years, there has also been a trend to take things we all know and love and label them as steak.
First the cauliflower steak, then the mushroom steak, and now a chef has revealed his recipe for bread steak.
Food website Basically shared an image on its Instagram of the meal by David Tamarkin.
The post explained: ‘When @davidtamarkin stopped eating steak, he still craved a slab of something lavish at the center of his plate—and a cauliflower “steak” just wasn’t going to cut it. Enter: The Bread Steak.
‘It’s a parmesan-crusted chunk of pan-roasted sourdough that’s decadent, fatty, salty, and (if you do it right) downright meaty.’
Although in looks undeniably delicious, people were confused that it’s been labelled as steak.
One wrote: ‘So… toast….?’
Another added: ‘Y’all are really trying to convince people that cheesy bread tastes like steak…. thank you for starting my day off with a laugh.’
‘A bread steak. A lettuce steak. A cauliflower steak. None of them are steak,’ someone else said.
‘Petition to ban the word “ bread steak” from ever being said again. #itstoast,’ another comment said.
A few were more supportive of the idea though.
‘The way everyone thinks this is intended to BE a steak? It’s very transparently bread…that’s serving the purpose of being salty and fatty and meaty… what’s not clicking?,’ one person said.
‘Vegetarian here, i did giggle at the idea…but it looks damn good tbh 👀 angry meat-eating commenters need to chill out lol,’ another said.
And one simple wrote: ‘You’re a genius.’
In the article featuring the recipe, it is labelled as ‘savoury french toast’ and a ‘vegetarian steak swap’.
