Beyond Beef Burger

I can’t remember who it was, but I remember someone talking about a beyond beef burger. I love vegan and vegetarian burgers and my first thought was that they would never come to Portugal.

Like a lot of foods, we just miss out on so much and I often get jealous compared to what food other countries have.

I was shopping in this really expensive Portuguese supermarket. The kind of shop where the local millionaires shop.

I only shop there occasionally for a handful of items that I can’t source anywhere else.

Well, I was in there trying not to freak out at how expensive things was, when on the end of an aisle I saw beyond beef burgers. Just sat there staring at me, telling me that I must take them home and air fry them.

Best Way To Cook Beyond Burger?

The best way to cook a beyond burger is in the air fryer of course. I love how amazing burgers in the air fryer turn out. Regardless of cooking a frozen burger, homemade burger, or shop bought burger.

In the Milner house we will regularly cook a burger in the air fryer and then have them for a quick family dinner.

Are Beyond Burgers Vegan?

Yes, beyond burgers are vegan. They are made from just plant based ingredients and are ideal if you follow a vegan or plant based diet.

Do You Season Beyond Beef Burger?

No need to season your beyond beef burgers as they have already been seasoned when you purchased them from the supermarket.

You can just cook then and then serve them how you would normally with a traditional hamburger. Such as in a burger bun, with fries, with garnish etc.

Or you could be creative with your beyond beef burger and chop it up and use it as a plant based alternative to ground minced beef.

Beyond Beef Ingredients

The beyond beef ingredients on my packaging was not in English and was in Italian, so I didn’t really know what was in the beyond meat burger.

But what did worry me, was when I did my beyond burger in the air fryer, there was a lot of smoke. This is usually an indication that the food you are air frying has a very high fat content.

Something I normally associate with low quality extremely fatty sausages such as Richmond’s.

I investigated further and found out that the beyond beef ingredients included:

  • Canola Oil
  • Coconut Oil

Which would explain the air fryer smoking as it clearly has a high oil count. Even though I did enjoy cooking beyond burger in the air fryer. I would rather make my own.

Then I could make some air fryer veggie burgers that are loaded with hidden veggies and have a much lower fat content.

How To Cook Beyond Burger?

air fryer beyond beef burgers step by step

The beyond burger cooking instructions are just as simple as cooking any other burger in the air fryer and is not any different because it is a vegan burger.

  1. Load beyond burgers into the air fryer.
  2. Air fry + turn.
  3. Serve.

You can probably see now why I am so obsessed with cooking burgers in the air fryer.

Can You Cook Beyond Burgers From Frozen?

Yes, you can. Whether the burgers are vegan, vegetarian or meat loaded, they cook well in the air fryer.

Though instead of following our beyond beef cook times I recommend you follow our air fryer frozen burgers instructions instead.

Can You Freeze Beyond Burger?

Yes, you can, and I have. I bought two packs of beyond burgers to try and one lot is what you see below and the other is currently sat in our freezer.

You can then cook your beyond burgers from frozen or you can thaw them first. It is totally up to you.

How Long To Cook Beyond Burger?

The beyond burger cook time is JUST 10 minutes. We recommend cooking your burgers for 5 minutes on each side for an even cook. Though do note there is a lot of smoke with them. I am just surprised that my smoke alarm didn’t go off.

The recommended beyond meat burger temperature is 180c/360f. This gives your beyond beef burger an all round cook and makes sure they are piping hot in the centre.
