    That is Dr House to you's Note:

    This is a highly seasoned Broth to cook your setian in. It is Ken Charney's recipe and he uses it with his basic dough recipe which is posted to Zaar. Search his name. You can use with other raw doughs also. It is going to remind you of Chicken broth/soup. This will do one batch of his dough

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In large pot place everything except the Seitan. Bring to a boil. Place wrapped [or not] Setian in pot and reduce heat to simmer. Partially cover pot with lid and cook for an hour.
    2. 2
      Use tongs and turn seitan over so all sides get exposed to broth. Cook for another hour to hour and half.
    3. 3
      The longer you cook, the firmer it is. You can remove at any point after 1 1/2 hours total and unwrap [if you wrapped] to check taste and firmness to decide if you want to keep cooking.
    4. 4
      IF the liquid has evaporated and more than half the seitan is exposed, add additional stock, about 1 to 2 cups.
    5. 5
      Cool, remove wrap [if wrapped], slice into rounds 1/2 inch thick or cut into shapes desired. Proceed with other recipes.
    6. 6
      It will be firm after this but will continue to firm up overnight.
    7. 7
      To store: Use refrigerator. Immerse completely in braising liquid and keep well sealed. It will keep up to 3 days this way.
    8. 8
      Again NOTE: THIS IS THE BROTH RECIPE TO CREATE THE TASTE IN SEITAN. This recipe made up would be used for chicken flavors such as Ken Pow Seitan with Asparagus. Note it is not going to be an exact chicken taste. That would take real chicken broth.
