Servings 4


  • 1 lb Beyond Meat Beef Thawed
  • 6 oz Vegan Chorizo We used Trader Joe's Soy Chorizo
  • 1 Yellow Onion Sliced
  • 4 Slices of Vegan Cheese We used Violife Mature Cheddar
  • 4 Hamburger Buns We recommend pretzel buns
  • Pik-Nik Original Shoestring Potatoes

Russian Sauce Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup Vegan Mayo
  • 2 tbsp Ketchup
  • 2 tbsp Yellow Mustard
  • 2 tsp Hot Sauce We recommend Cholula


  • To make these amazing vegan Frita’s, turn on your grill (or stovetop) and combine 1 lb of Beyond Meat Beef with 6 oz of vegan Chorizo in a bowl.
  • Flatten out evenly in the bowl and divide into 4 parts to shape into burger patties. This will equate to quarter pounders once it cooks and releases the fat.
  • Cook the patties for 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until brown. We recommend cooking them over the grill for a lean and flavorful burger. However, we’ve also made this on the griddle/pan and it still is delicious. Just beware of the drippage!
  • While the patties are cooking, saute your onions until they are brown and caramelized (Trick: add a dash of maple syrup to caramelize the onions further).
  • Once you flip the patties for the first time, place a slice of cheese over each patty so that the cheese melts as the other side cooks. This will lead to ultimate cheesy goodness!
  • Remove from heat and assemble! Spread the Russian sauce on the pretzel buns and stack the caramelized onions and Pik-Nik sticks over your delicious Frita/Chorizo Burger!
