Super Meaty Seitan Meat Substitute

User Rating 4.5 Star Rating (2 Reviews)


Looking for easy vegan seitan recipes? Here is a complete list of vegan seitan recipes

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.

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.
