This dish consists of Viana‘s Cowgirl Veggie Steak (also known as Holzfäller Hacksteaks in German) with a childhood veganised potato salad, baked beans and corn on the cob. My mother used to make a Taiwanese-style potato salad with loads of boiled egg, carrots, peas, potatoes, and Kewpie mayonnaise, that was used for sandwiches. Now this childhood recipe is veganised with the use of a Japanese-based vegan mayonnaise.
vegan taiwanese potato salad
Serve it with bread as a filling.
4 medium Yukon Gold potatoes, diced 1-inch, skin must be removed.
2 carrots, diced 1-inch, unpeeled
1/4 cup frozen snow peas, partially thawed
3/4 cup vegan mayonnaise
3- 5 tablespoons sugar depending on how sweet the mayo will be (Used MayoDorée Vegan Mayo
. The mayo has to be super sweet.)
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 green onion, finely chopped (only the green parts)
Boil the diced potatoes in the pot until tender. They cannot be mushy or very firm. Poke a fork through one without any resistance. Drain. Boil the carrot in the same pot. Carrots must be tender as well. Drain. Boil the snow peas for at least one minute, place the cooked peas in the bowl full of ice to retain the green colour.
Leave the potatoes and carrots aside and let them cool at room temperature.
In a mixing bowl, add the mayo. Add sugar one tablespoon at a time until desired sweetness.
In a second mixing bowl, add the boiled carrots and potatoes, snow peas, vegan mayonnaise/sugar mixture, and turmeric. Mix well. Add chopped green onions as garnish.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let it cool in the fridge for at least one hour. Always serve them chilled.
The vegan potato salad can last in the fridge, covered for about 3-4 days fresh. You can use it as a sandwich filling or a side dish to any meals. I used rye sourdough bread with the potato salad and it tasted fabulous.

The Cowgirl Veggie Steak took about 5 minutes to fry in the pan. It is best to leave it in the fridge before frying. You do not need to add oil to the pan because the steak looks visibly ready to cook or grill. The texture wasn’t chewy, stringy, or tough. It falls apart easily and it is easy to slice. You don’t need to season the steak since it’s pre-seasoned, pre-oiled, and pre-ready for any quick meals. It’s well seasoned, full of flavours, and very savoury.

I would like to introduce a gourmet vegan meat alternative from Germany, Viana which I will be featuring soon. I remembered trying their products whilst visiting Hamburg and Berlin in 2008-2009 and they created very delicious sausage snacks. Some of their Viana meat products are available at some Whole Foods stores throughout U.S. this year, which was pretty exciting to hear about. They carry a variety of vegan meat alternatives such as veggie bratwurst, veggie turkish roast, and the list goes on.
