    Serah B.'s Note:

    A very flavorful, simple to throw together meal. Makes the house smell amazing! This is based on a beef recipe we used to make all the time before going vegan. It is absolutely just as tasty with seitan.

      A friend at work gave me some seitan to try. I'm so glad I chose this recipe to try it out on. It's delicious. I didn't have time to use the crockpot so it was prepared on the stovetop. I cooked it for about an hour in total and the peppers were only cooked to the point where they still had a bit of crunch. The seitan has a surprisingly meaty texture. Thanks for sharing.

      Super good! I served it over quinoa and it was really good. And the house DID smell fantastic!

      I followed the recipe and served over brown rice, but was disappointed with the results -- ours wound up more sweet and bitter than like the sweet and sour dishes you might get at a Chinese place. It was worth a try, but just wasn't what any of us had hoped for.
