DIRECTIONS

  • In a bowl combine the soy sauce, vinegar, 1/2 cup water, sugar, garlic, and ginger root.
  • In another bowl, combine the egg and cornstarch and dip the seitan pieces.
  • Heat the oil in a wok or deep, heavy skillet until very hot, add the seitan and fry it for 4 to 6 minutes, or until it is crisp-ish. (This was so much better after I finally broke down and bought a wok. It really does make a huge difference!).
  • Add the soy sauce mixture and the chile peppers and cook the mixture over moderately high heat for 2 minutes, or until heated through. (I usually bring the sauce to a boil after I've poured it on, and then reduce the heat to simmer until it's as thick as I want it. It takes about five minutes, because I like the sauce pretty thick.).
  • Serve with cooked rice and enjoy!
  • Laura says: “This is more than enough for the three of us with left overs the next day, and it's really yummy. I'm actually not much of a chef, so I tend to keep it simple and quick.”.
