Super meaty seitan meat substitute
A super meaty tasting seitan recipe that you can add to stir-fries, Chinese food recipes, vegetarian sub sandwiches or just gobble up right out of the pan. The combination of ingredients may seem a bit odd, but the salty soy sauce, tangy vinegar and sweet barbecue sauce all combine for a really meat-like flavor in this vegetarian and vegan seitan recipe.

  • approx 1 pound seitan, sliced into strips or bite-sized chunks
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp barbecue sauce
  • 1-2 tbsp water


Sautee seitan in oil over medium-low heat until lightly browned on all sides, about 5 minutes.

Add soy sauce, stirring to coat seitan well, then add vinegar, barbecue sauce and a tablespoon or two of water, stirring to mix well and coat seitan.

Heat for 1-2 more minutes, until water is absorbed and seitan is cooked.

I tired this and used Braggs ACV instead and it was fantastic. I also made it with the balsamic, but really prefer the Braggs. This stuff is great. I take it for lunch and really have a hard time not eating just the seitan by itself before lunch time. It is so good.
