i used my own unflavored raw gluten and halved the recipe. used a loaf pan covered with foil and added extra water to almost cover gluten so the top would cook. also used normal soy sauce as i was out of tamari. does taste a lot like beef roast, very tender. would be good for a holiday dinner. a bit salty for my taste, even with the extra water (almost all absorbed) so may reduce soy sauce a bit next time. going to go try it on a sandwich. strangely when i made this again as the full size, not halved, it didn't work well at all! the middle ended up rubbery and tasteless and i only ended up eating the outsides. will keep using the halved recipe from now on.
