READY IN: 8hrs 20mins
Recipe by Buckethead

Yummy beef flavored gluten roast made in the crock pot, using stuff I actually had on hand rather than the stuff I see in most recipes!

This was pretty good. I did not have the Lipton onion soup mix, but the other reviewers made me think that was ok, and it was. I used a vegetarian fake chicken bouillon and added some soy sauce and liquid smoke to give it a more beefy flavor. I would not serve this as a roast, as it still had that odd flavor that non-commercially bought seitan seems to have. I used the stand mixer with the dough hook, which was really inconvenient. The dough is so thick the mixer just kept pushing it to the sides of the bowl. I will knead by hand next time. I chopped into small pieces and added to a mushroom stroganoff. I will definitely make this again.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place roast ingredients in a bread machine on dough setting or in stand mixer with dough hooks.
  2. Mix on high for 15 minutes. You may need to scrape down occasionally in mixer.
  3. Set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  4. Prepare broth. DO NOT make it hot! If using bouillon cubes, crush them and just add to your water, it will mix as it cooks.

  7. Set on low, for 8 hours.
  8. Turn halfway through.
  9. When done, remove and drain on paper towels.
