Craving a vegan filet mignon that looks, cooks, and tastes similar to premium steak? Look no further.
On this episode of EATKINDLY With Me, Mark Thompson—aka Sauce Stache—shows us how to make a vegan filet mignon steak wrapped in rice paper bacon.
“I’ve been experimenting with vegan steaks and cuts of meats for years,” Thompson explains. “Making steak vegan is near and dear to me because beef is one of the most resource-intensive and environmentally harmful foods on the planet.”
It takes 674 gallons of water to produce a six-ounce cut of steak. That’s enough water for nearly 30 showers. Plant-based meats like this vegan filet mignon are a delicious and sustainable protein option compared to animal-derived meat.

This is the perfect meal for those who love meat but also want to be conscious of their impact on animals and the environment.
“Now a filet mignon is supposed to be juicy and succulent and tender,” Thompson says. “And to do that, we’re going to be making that using gluten, specifically vital wheat gluten.” In order to whip up these ingredients, you will need a blender. You’ll also need a steamer pot and a skillet.
“Meaty and steaky has a really nice bite to it,” he says after taking a bite.
