Seitan meat substitute, recipe

Submitted by: SHOBAN5

Introduction

I was really amazed how good this was when I first made it! I recommend using the chicken bouillion instead of homemade stock as it lends a much better flavor to the finished product. (That's not normal for me, I love homemade stock!) I was really amazed how good this was when I first made it!

Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    2 cups vital wheat gluten (Bob's Red Mill makes it)
    1 tsp garlic powder
    1.25 tsp Knorr Chicken Bouillion (or 1-1/4 cube)
    1-1/4 cup water
    1 tsp onion powder.

    (make and additional quart -or more- of chicken bouillion broth to simmer the seitan in).

Tips

This is best served thinly sliced or ground up. I use my meat grinder attachment on my Kitchenaid mixer. Any meat grinder will do. Makes awesome stir fry, taco "meat", meatballs. Use like you would chicken or pork.


Directions

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix liquids together and add to dry ingredients all at once. Mix vigorously with a fork until it forms a stiff dough. Knead it in the bowl 10 to 15 times. Let rest about 5 minutes and knead it a few more times.

Let rest another 15 minutes and then cut into 8 pieces, stretching each for form a "cutlet". Simmer all in more Knorr broth for 30 to 60 minutes. The longer you cook it, the better it gets.

Serving Size: divide dough into 8 portions

Number of Servings: 8
