The first marbled steaks made from plants are here! Juicy Marbles co-founders Tilen Travnik, Luka Sincek, and Maj Hrovat uncovered a new line of raw, plant-based steaks, and the first is Filet Mignon.
Using a proprietary framework called Meat-o-matic Reverse GrinderTM9000, they use natural ingredients to mimic the marbling and framework of the steak, according to an emailed release. The cohort recently graduated from a Y Combinator cohort.
“The biggest challenge was getting the right fiber alignment and intramuscular fat structure – the marbling. The most expensive steaks in the world are known for their lush marbling. It takes a lot of energy and a rare breed of cow to attain that. With plant meat, we control it and, thus, over time, can scale up our steak production and bring down the price. Eventually, we’ll be able to make the most premium meats attainable for everyone,” shared Luka Sincek over email.
You can purchase the stakes on the Juicy Marbles website.
