Beef-Style Seitan

This is a healthy alternative to beef!

- It's full of protein!
- It's low fat!
- It's cholesterol free!
- It's got a meaty texture!
- It's yummy!

Use it like any meat product:

- Crumble it into Sloppy Joes or Bolognese!
- Chop it into a stir fry!
- Slice it as a topper for an Asian Salad!
- Cube it for stews, soups or my Bourguignon!
- Grill it like burgers or steaks!



1 cup TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein)

1 cup beef broth

1 tablespoon ketchup

1 teaspoon coarse grain mustard

1/2 cup yellow onion, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 teaspoons Mrs. Dash Steak

1 teaspoon liquid smoke

1 egg white

1/2 cup vital wheat gluten

1/4 cup nutritional yeast flakes

Beef broth, if necessary

Olive oil, for coating


Preheat oven to 375°F.

In a large bowl, mix together TVP and beef broth. Set aside for a few minutes.

Stir in ketchup, mustard, onion, garlic, Mrs. Dash, liquid smoke. Add egg white and combine.

This is a photo of my Beefy Mushroom Bourguignon with Seitan:

Add vital wheat gluten and nutritional yeast. If mixture is too dry, add broth by the tablespoon until dough sticks together.

Cover a baking sheet with foil. Coat with non-stick cooking spray.

Form into 6-8 “steaks” and place on baking sheet. Brush tops of seitan steaks sparingly with olive oil.
Bake 30 minutes, turn once and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

Cool, store covered in refrigerator and use within 7-10 days

This is a photo a my awesome Chicken Style Dijon recipe with grilled vegetables on the side.

Simply substitute Mrs. Dash Chicken Seasoning for the steak seasoning, you can create a Chicken-Style Seitan! Easily as useful as the beef recipe!
