Beefy Beef-Less Seitan

Beefy Beef-Less Seitan

This hearty Beefy Beef-Less Seitan has a dense bite and a fibrous texture which makes it perfect for stewing, grilling, stir-frying, roasting, or simply slicing up for sandwiches. It has a hearty flavor from the mushroom bouillon and Bragg’s Liquid Amino’s that is reminiscent of beef but in a plant-based form that’s high in protein and free of cholesterol.  I don’t eat Seitan very often but it is great when you craving a more meaty and hearty texture.

Incidentally, I made a alkaline version of Seitan a few weeks ago. It was amazingly good! However, this by far is a less tedious process that tasted equally good. This super delicious yet totally vegan, Beefy Beef-Less Seitan is my new go-to for the holidays! Enjoy and Bon Appetite!

Ingredients
  • 1 cup hot spring water
  • 1/2 cup cooked kidney or pinto beans
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 teaspoon veggie or mushroom bouillon
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Bragg’s Liquid Aminos
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup vital wheat gluten
  • Sea Salt To Taste

Instructions
  1. Blend all ingredients together except the vital wheat gluten. You want the ingredients to be fairly smoothly pureed. It's OK to leave some texture in though.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the liquid with the vital wheat gluten. Stir together until a dough forms.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a clean surface and knead for one minute. Do not overknead. You should see the gluten strands develop and the dough should be firm and spring back easily.
  4. Set up your steamer. Heat the water to a boil and oil the steaming basket so that the seitan doesn't stick. Place the seitan into the steamer, cover and steam over high heat for one hour. Do not let the water boil dry; check it regularly and add water if necessary.
  5. After one hour, remove the seitan and let it cool before slicing or cubing. The seitan can be used immediately, but the texture can be improved by searing the cubes on all sides, especially if using for stew.
  6. In a large pan, heat a tablespoon of oil over medium high heat. When the oil is simmering, add the cubes. Cook until the bottom is brown, about thirty seconds, then turn the cubes and repeat until all the sides are nicely browned and a bit crispy.
  7. Serve immediately, use for other dishes, or cool and store in the freezer or fridge for later use.
  8. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes
  • After steaming, you can cool and store the seitan in an airtight container in the fridge for up to one week.
  • Frozen seitan will last for 2 to 3 months.
