I made some changes, but FANTASTIC! I broke up the tempeh, simmered, drained, strainer and patted dry with a towel. I added a bit of olive oil and sauteed the crumbles for about 10 minutes, used Jack Daniels BBQ sauce and had a fresh, soft Portugese roll! Best dinner in a while and I did it within my WW points for the day! THANK YOU for posting!

This is a GREAT recipe! This recipe was my first tempeh ever, and it ROCKS! I never knew how easy it was to make your own BBQ sauce, too! (No preservatives or chemicals, too!) I did do a couple of minor modifications, mostly due to what I had on hand. Instead of cayenne, I used chipotle peppers. Great smoky, spicy flavor! For some reason I saw "tamari" and thought tahini (sesame seed paste) and added that. It still seemed to work. (Even though I did put the soy sauce in, too). The recipe calls for 16oz of tempeh; most tempeh is sold in 8 oz. To make up for the lost bulk, I added some shitake mushrooms to the mix, which worked well. I also served this over quinoa (made with oil, thyme, rosemary, and oregano). This worked EXCELLENT.

Yum! I just made it again for the third time; It's just that good. I've been a vegetarian for a long time, so I really enjoy the barbecue flavor with tasty tempeh!! I made a few tweaks: I added sliced mushrooms and a half a can of tomato paste. Thanks for this recipe!!

Liked this tempeh recipe! I am a fan of tempeh and of the preparation method outlined in this recipe. The BBQ sauce was fine, but there's others that I like better that we've made that I could see using with this dish, so it has definitely given me some ideas (especially of how I can participate when my husband is making pulled pork for himself and other guests). Thanks, Sandi!

WIN! Great recipe. I halved it for the 2 of us, and would say the whole recipe must serve more then 4! O.O When I first tasted the sauce I thought it was going to be rather bland and tomatoey, but it simmers into something quite grand! I did add little extra molasses and vinegar to mine - just minor tweaking. This was a great introduction to tempeh for my fiance! No complaints! I would recommend this to anyone, especially first timers. Of coarse the longer it sits in the sauce the better. I'll bet this would be great done in the crock pot, left on low for a few hours!

I can't eat anything without tons of vegetables, so I used 8oz of tempeh and added a big bag of coleslaw mix toward the end (kind of like a stir-fry). Even with the extra veggies, the sauce is bold enough to still hold a lot of flavor. I served it on toasted Ezekiel bread, and it was yummy! (Even my husband loved it!!) Instead of serving 4, it serves at least 6 or 8.

This was great and very easy! Used a can of fire roasted crushed tomatoes and served it on Portuguese rolls. Perfect for watching a football game!

Like it, but don't you mean 500 g tempeh in 2.5 cm strips? And all you really have to do to go Metric with the rest of the recipe is to use Metric cups and spoons instead of antiquated American cups and spoons.

Really enjoyed this. Used bottled bbq sauce and had it on a bun with lots of hot sauce. Only thing better would have been if i'd had some coleslaw to put on the sandwich and I will do that next time!
