Well! Are you in for a treat or are you in for a treat ? SEITAN !!!!!!!! No not the devil himself, totally vegan, delicious, meaty steaks ! You’ll never want for beef again ! It’s so adaptable you can make steaks, burgers even a Sunday roast out of it ! And all home made, low fat and nommy!
Ingredients for Broth
4 cups of water
2/3rds of a cup of soya sauce
1 big teaspoon of marmite
2 teaspoons of garlic power
Veggie stock cube
and a liberal sprinkling of bisto veggie beef granules.
Put all the ingrediants into a pot and bring to the boil! Take off and leave to cool. It’s as easy as that! Any left over makes a yummy rich gravy, perfect for roasties!
For the steaks
1 cup of vital wheat gluten flour
3 heaped tablespoons of yeast flakes (just nommy on their own, go on try a few) ;)
Another sprinkling of bisto beef granules
1 teaspoon of garlic powder
1/2 a teaspoon of chili flakes (optional)
1 tablespoon of veggie oil
Stir all the dry ingredients together , then slowly add the oil and the broth till you get the consistancy you like. (about a cupful) I like mine really quite moist, so the steaks melt in your mouth If you’re making the setain strips you’ll need 3/4 cup of liquid.Experiment and see what you like Make sure it’s all thoroughly mixed and then let it have a rest for 5
Now you can cook these how ever you like.
You can bake them in the oven , for 7 mins one side and 5 mins the other at 180. If you do shape them into strips, and place on a baking paper so they don’t stick. These are drier and chewier but just as tasty!
For steaks, flatten out the mixture and cut into 8 squares. Then pop them back in the broth and simmer for 40 mins. Put the lid on and watch them grow! Or cut in to 4 squares and then roll the big bit up for a roast joint! cook the same way!
When the buzzer goes take them out of the broth, and place them to cool, but please try and not eat them all hehehehhe!
They freeze fine, if you can’t eat them all You can roast ‘em, fry ‘em and even barbeque ‘em Perfect for Cornish pasties, pasty pie, stir fry’s or what ever else you can think of!
NOTE! Do not eat if you are gluten intolerant. I have a gluten free smokey gammony recipe which I’ll put up later
Pic to follow later, I can’t find me old ones, so I’ll take some new next time I make it
Seitan love to you all
