BBQ Flavored Seitan
75 mins (prep 15, cooking 60)
16 ingredients
1 servings
I wanted to make more a BBQ type seitan after the success of my spicy seitan, so I made a few modifications to my original recipe and came up with this. I also made BBQ sauce for the first time and it turned out pretty good. Unfortunately I didn't really keep track of measurements, so I won't be posting that recipe right away.Also, if you're making this on a large scale (the first time I made this I actually octupled the recipe) you're probably going to need to add more of the liquid ingredients (maybe 1 to 2 cups more of the mixture). You want the seitan to feel similar to a wet sponge.Just like with my other seitan, how long you cook it will effect how hard or soft it is. Personally, I like this kind to be sort of like lunch meat, so I've included the times for making it a nice, soild, meat substitute. If you think you've over cooked it (it gets really browned), don't worry. Let it cool and bake it or fry it up later. The "skin" will soften when it's reheated.
