Saucy Seitan

Saucy Seitan

  • One batch of homemade seitan, or two boxes of store-bought seitan
  • I onion, sliced
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • marinade ingredients:
  • 6 T soy sauce (definitely use low sodium since there is a lot of soy sauce in this recipe)
  • 6 T sherry
  • sauce ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup + 1 T soy sauce
  • 4 1/2 T corn starch
  • 3 T sugar
  • 4 1/2 t white vinegar
  • optional garnishes – cashews and scallions
  • olive oil for cooking

Combine soy sauce and sherry and marinate seitan in it for an hour.

Discard marinade and saute seitan over medium high heat in a little olive oil until brown on both sides.  Remove from pan.

Saute onion and garlic in 1 T olive oil for 5 minutes.

In a small bowl combine sauce ingredients.  Add sauce to onions and garlic in the pan.  Stir for a few minutes as it thickens.  If sauce is too thick for your liking, add vegetable stock 1 T at a time.

Return seitan to pan.  Let warm through.  Garnish with chopped scallions and cashew nuts.
