OAKVILLE, Ont. — Lone Star Texas Grill has launched the Beyond Meat Fajita at its 22 locations in Ontario.
The new menu item features Beyond Meat’s 100-per-cent plant-based Beyond Meat Crumble and is served on a sizzling skillet loaded with sautéed broccoli, spinach, mushrooms, peppers, onions, ranchero sauce and toasted pepitas (a variety of hull-less pumpkin seed), as well as freshly baked tortillas and unlimited toppings.
“We have listened to our guests’ feedback and have partnered with Beyond Meat to launch our new plant-based-protein fajita,” says Mark Findlay, CEO of Lone Star Texas Grill. “We spent a lot of time creating this extension of our signature fajitas and, with the increased demand for alternative protein, the Beyond Meat Crumble was the perfect fit. Combining Beyond Meat with our Tex-Mex Ranchero sauce allows our signature fajitas to be enjoyed by vegetarian and ‘flexitarian’ guests. We will be continuing to look at ways to incorporate Beyond Meat into our other signature Tex-Mex dishes like burritos, enchiladas and chimichangas in the near future.”
