wheat meat ground beef burrito

After the wheat meat meal of mock corned beef, cabbage, and potatoes, I had enough chunks of wheat meat left and decided to make a simple mock ground beef burrito meal.

If making this from scratch, follow the procedure for making wheat meat chunks/blocks as before and keep them handy. Optionally, throw in some burro bananas whole (skin and all) into the simmering broth for the wheat meat and allow it to cook till soft but not mushy, drain and set aside

3-4 large flour tortillas

for the mock ground beef filling:
3-4 chunks of wheat meat (each the size pictured above - about 2½ inch diameter)
1 Tbsp cayenne pepper powder
1 Tbsp coriander powder
½ medium onion chopped
1 jalapeño diced finely
2-3 garlic cloves crushed
1 Tbsp small capers (optional)
1 Tbsp canola oil
salt to taste
cilantro for garnish

for the salsa fresca:
1 large tomato, diced finely
½ medium onion, diced finely
1 jalapeño diced finely
1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp Tabasco® sauce (or any favorite hot sauce)
salt to taste
1 Tbsp lemon juice
cilantro chopped
salt to taste


combine the salsa ingredients, toss well, adjust to taste, set aside for flavors to develop

coarsely chop the wheat meat chunks and pulse them in a blender or food processor just enough to break them down to ground meat consistency

heat oil in a pan, sauté the onions, jalapeño, garlic, with a pinch of salt till onions turn translucent; add the ground wheat meat and the flavoring spices, stir well; sauté till desired brownness; garnish with cilantro

warm up the tortillas and serve them with the salsa and ground wheat meat filling

Optionally, cut up the steamed burro bananas into bite sized chunks and serve on the side. Add some refried beans, if preferred; maybe some olives...
