Vegan Beefy Seitan Recipe

#1 Postby DV » Mon Jun 09, 2008 5:19 pm

We've been eating a lot of this recently although I'm decreasing the amount of sodium - it's just a bit too salty for my taste. It reminds me of the marinated London Broil my mother used to grill when we were kids. Here is the recipe:

Bryanna's seitan recipes seem to be overly complex and use too many ingredients. I doubt I'd be able to find 'pinto bean' or 'hominy' flakes (?) in the UK. Why are these needed?

You don't need either of those ingredients. They were listed as "or" ingredients. I have found that using any flour (chick pea/garbanzo, whole wheat, regular wheat, spelt, rice) as the addition to gluten is fine - it just changes the texture slightly.

Seitan recipes are meant to be modified!

I've never heard of them or seen them in the UK, especially not as flakes. I have only made seitan once and tht was from a 'just add water' mix.

Ideally I would like a recipe where the seitan is very chewy and meaty, not the awful rubbery and spongey texture that a lot of seitan recipes come out like. Vital Wheat Gluten is also really hard to come by and has to be bought via mail order usually.
