Are you a fan of Impossible burgers? Then you might just love Impossible Pork, the company’s newest addition to their plant-based meat range, which will be available in Hong Kong from the beginning of October.
Just like its competitor and some might say, predecessor, OmniPork, Impossible Pork can be used in any recipe that calls for actual ground pork, including spring rolls, meatballs, dumplings, xiao long bao, siu mai or sausage links, making it easier than ever to cut down on your meat consumption!
To celebrate the launch, you can now try delicious Impossible Pork dishes at the Tong Chong Street Market in Taikoo Place from now until the end of October.
Also, from 4-8 October 2021, Impossible will be giving away 100 free Impossible Pork Bento Boxes daily from 15 participating restaurants. These boxes will feature a different theme each day, from Dim Sum and Classic Chinese, to East Meets West and South-East Asian, and each will have three tasting portion dishes from popular restaurants including Tim Ho Wan, Good BBQ, Bloom by Wong Jia Sha, Indonesia 1968, Check-in Taipei, Kyoto Katsugyu and Years.
After this initial phase, from October 4, more than 40 partner restaurants will continue serving Impossible Pork dishes alongside their normal offerings. Some of these dishes include the Eggplant and Impossible Pork Casserole at MX, Pork Meatballs in an Italian Tomato Sauce with Linguini at Ruby Tuesday and Impossible Suckling Pig served with steamed lotus bread at My Meat Run Laboratory.
You’ll also be able to buy ready-to-cook dishes made with Impossible Pork at selected PARKnSHOP stores in Hong Kong from October onwards. These dishes include Impossible Pork Dumplings with Chinese Cabbage, Impossible Deep Fried Bean Curd Roll, Steamed Impossible Pork Patty with Preserved Vegetables and Impossible Pork Cube Stir Fry with Mixed Vegetables.
The Benefits of Impossible Pork
Alternative meat products are more sustainable than their traditional counterparts, but in particular, Impossible Pork uses 85% less water, 82% less land and generates 73% less greenhouse gas emissions than traditional pork products.
The rising popularity of alternative meat products is making it easier than ever to give up meat, or simply eat less of it. You can use Impossible Pork to make your usual favourite meals, or gather your friends for a Meatless Monday meal and experiment with different recipes!
