"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!"

  • Place roast ingredients in a bread machine on dough setting or in stand mixer with dough hooks.

    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.

    This was my first attempt at a seitan type dish and was pleasantly surprised. The flavor was quite strong and I think that next time I will just completely omit the onion soup mix. This was incredibly easy to put together and I used my bread machine to mix it.

    This worked quite well, and it came out quite a bit like the commercial meat analogues. It was a bit strong for us, though. Maybe next time I'll cut down the onion soup mix a bit.


I have found a true talent in cooking. This developed after getting married 6 years ago. I get so excited whenever I get a new kitchen tool, it's ridiculous! I try all my recipes on my hubby and 2 fabulous kids. They have very well-rounded taste buds for a 3 and 5 year old! I'm big into Italian cooking right now. I also love to make Indian recipes.
