Black Bean Steak

Written by McDonald, T.  |  Date 2nd of April 2024

Fancy a vegan steak?  Ok, why not make your own? This is very easy and quick to make with lots of flavour, so why not give it a go?  The black beans contain a lot of protein and roughage.


  • I used Orgran egg replacer, but you can use flaxseed egg.
  • I used a tbsp of coconut oil, which I highly recommend.

Makes 1 big steak 

Time, up to about an hour not including resting time.


  • Black beans x 40g, roughly mashed
  • Grated carrot, swede, and onion x 30 g each
  • Flour x 3 tbsp
  • Egg replacer x 1
  • Dijon mustard x 1/2 tsp
  • Yeast extract x 1 tsp
  • Tamari x 2 tsps
  • Cider vinegar x 1 tbsp
  • Nutritional yeast x 2 tsps
  • Garlic granules x 1 tsp
  • White pepper x 1/4 tsp
  • Salt x 1/4 tsp


  1. Mash the beans in a small mixing bowl with a fork to get a rough texture. Add the grated carrot, swede, and onion to the mixing bowl.  
  2. Add all the other ingredients and mix with the fork. If the mixture is too wet to form a shape, add a little more flour. 
  3. Shape into a steak and place on a greased baking dish. Leave in the fridge for at least 1 hour to firm up and allow the flavours to combine.
  4. Brush with oil and roast in a preheated oven at 200 °C oven for 35 – 40 minutes. Turn halfway through.

I was very pleased with the way this steak turned out.  It had crispy bits around the edges and was softer in the middle, but still had great texture.  The steak held together all the way through the cooking process.
