Grilled Seitan with Tangy Asian Sauce


I LOVE SEITAN!!   I love it sauteed, steamed, fried, and baked, but my favorite way to enjoy seitan is grilled!   This recipe is so simple and can be made using my basic seitan recipe, or by purchasing seitan already made.  When I don’t have time to make it myself, I like to use West Soy Seitan, which is available at health food stores and specialty markets like Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s.  The advantage to making the seitan yourself is that you will end up with nice cutlet size pieces, as opposed to the smaller cubes or strips available pre-made.  But whichever seitan you use, this recipe will be sure to please!  If you use the pre-made seitan, then you will need a grilling basket.  You can also forgo the grill and sautee the seitan in 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat and it will still taste great!


You will need 9 “steaks” – which is 1/2 of my basic recipe for seitan, or 2 boxes of West Soy Seitan.  

  • 2 T sesame oil
  • 1 entire bulb of garlic, pressed
  • 2 T soy sauce
  • 1 1/2 T agave nectar

Mix together in a small bowl and then rub 1/2 t onto the front and back of each “steak.”


Oil your grill and grill the seitan steaks about 3 minutes per side.

For the sauce, combine the following:

  • 1 T rice wine vinegar
  • 1 T agave nectar
  • 1 T braggs liquid aminos


Serves 4
