Turning TOFU into Shredded Vegan Ground “Beef” is Cheap, Easy and DELICIOUS! Use in just about any dish you like!

I’ve made a few Vegan Ground Beef recipes, like a TVP Ground Beef, Tempeh, and a Lentil & Mushroom as well. This recipe is very similar to my Tofu Ground Beef Recipe, with a couple of differences.

First, we’ll be shredding the tofu with a cheese grater instead of crumbling it. This does change up the texture a bit, though it is subtle.

Second, we will skip the dehydrating step. I find it’s not needed for the shredded tofu, and I prefer the more tender texture of it.

why you’ll love Shredded tofu beef

In a nutshell it’s…


I’ve been enjoying it all week in tacos, over rice, and in some Freezer Friendly Burritos! The possibilities are pretty endless and you can really let your imagination go wild! It’s a really simple recipe too that comes together relatively quickly.

You can save leftovers too and reheat them in a matter of minutes and use in just about any dish you can think of.


As per usual, I highly recommend Super Firm Tofu that’s vacuum sealed, and doesn’t need pressing. You can use Extra Firm, just make sure you press it, otherwise it will take a while to cook out the liquid.

seasonings / marinade

For the seasoning and marinade, we are packing a lot of UMAMI with a variety of sources. I tried to keep the ingredients as accessible as possible, but feel free to substitute as needed!

how to make Shredded vegan beef

This couldn’t be easier! First, shred your tofu with a cheese grater.

Make the marinade by combining all the ingredients.

Add the tofu to a pan and grill it for a few minutes until it’s gotten a little dried out, then pour the marinade over.

Stir to incorporate the marinade, cook for another 4 – 5 minutes, season to taste and you’re done!

Enjoy as you wish!

  • Prepare the marinade by combining everything in a bowl with a whisk.
  • Shred the tofu with a cheese grater.
  • Add a little oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Grill the tofu in batches if needed so you don't crowd the pan. Cook tofu until it starts to get some golden color and begins to get dried out and slightly chewy, about 6-8 minutes.
  • Pour in the marinade and stir to coat thoroughly. Reduce marinade until it has been absorbed by the tofu. This shouldn't take too long, about 4-5 minutes tops.
  • Your tofu meat is done!


You can also add in a bit of shredded vegan cheese if you like, but they don't need it to be delicious!
