Vegan konjac “steak” that is meaty and chewy similar to a fatty cut of beef. Seared and glazed with a savory, umami sauce.
Konjac (Konnyaku) is a type of Japanese yam cake that is typically eaten in hot pots and stews — you might be familiar with its elongated brother, shirataki (“miracle”) noodles. Yep, perhaps the most “miracle” part of konnyaku is that it is 97% water. This makes it a favorite amongst dieters and vegetarians in Japan, because its soluble fibers give satiation while containing almost 0 calories. Given our culinary agenda, its high water content also means that it will soak up any flavorings we put it in.
