Greggs Vegan Steak Bake Review

16 January 2020

If you couldn't already tell, I am absolutely loving trying out all of the new foods that have been released this Veganuary. I've mentioned it a few times by now, but, just in case you're new here, I don't eat a plant-based diet but I have cut cows milk from my diet and am trying to cut my meat consumption, and just have an interest in trying all of the new vegan products.

For today's episode of Becca tries a new vegan product, we've got the Greggs Vegan Steak Bake. Now, confession time, I've never actually tried the original Steak Bake (yes, I know!) so I, unfortunately, can't give you the like for like comparison that you're all hankering for. But, as someone who loves pastry and all beige foods as much as the next person, I'm sure I can still give it a thorough test and report back!

The Greggs Vegan Steak Bake 

According to the website, this gorgeous hunk of beige contains 96 (!!!) layers of puff pastry around Quorn mycoprotein and diced onions in a rich gravy. I mean, after the KFC Burger I probably could have guessed that this was going to be a Quorn product... Are you sensing a theme here?

Retailing at £1.55 - slightly more than the original - the Vegan Steak Bake certainly is a cheap lunch option if you're out and about and fancy something filling.

Now, onto the bit you've all been waiting for: the taste test. I'm going to be honest, I wasn't expecting great things. I mean, what is puff pastry without alllll the butter right? Well, I needn't worry because the pastry on this bad boy was delicious, I genuinely couldn't tell the difference! Quick question, does anyone ever eat a pasty/sausage roll/pie for anything other than the pastry?!

As for the 'meat' - the filling of this bake was delicious. The gravy was really tasty, and the Quorn was really good too. I don't personally eat a lot of steak but I'd definitely put this down as a fairly good substitute!

But, the ultimate question... Would Becca have another Vegan Steak Bake? Yes, yes she would. It definitely wouldn't be my first choice of snacks but if I were to find myself hungry and stood in Greggs, I'd definitely consider ordering one of these!


Next on my list to try is the infamous Vegan Sausage Roll....

Have you tried the Vegan Steak Bake yet?
