Vegetarian Seitan Steaks With Mushroom Wine Sauce

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
YIELD: 4 steaks




  • In a large bowl, combine the gluten powder, 1/2 Tbs chickpea flour, nutritional yeast, and spices. separately combine the broth, soy sauce, tomato sauce and olive oil. Mix well.
  • Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir until you have a dough. Knead for 3 minutes. the dough will become firmer as the gluten develops. Let it rest for 10 minutes and then knead again for a minute. divide into 4 equal pieces. Knead each piece and form into the shape of a steak.
  • Wrap each piece loosely in aluminum foil or parchment paper. Place the packets in a steamer and steam for 30 minutes. When the steaks cool, transfer them to the refrigerator for at least an hour but preferably overnight.
  • in the meantime, sautee your onions, garlic, and mushrooms in butter until slightly softened. add the wine and simmer on medium until it has reduced down to a rich sauce. add salt and pepper and dill to taste. some might like a splash more white wine.
  • Heat vegetable oil to medium high. season the remaining chickpea flour with salt and pepper. Lightly dredge the seitan steaks in the flour. Shake off the excess. Cook for 3 minutes per side, until they have a crispy, browned coating. top with your mushroom reduction and serve with potatoes and salad.
