Seitan Steak with fries and onions

Takes about an hour and serves a fuckin army. Aka 4 people.

  • 1 cup / 165 g vital wheat gluten flour
  • 3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 Tbsp paprika powder
  • ½ tsp Pink Himalayan salt
  • ¾ cup cold water
  • 2 Tbsp soy sauce or liquid aminos
  • 1 Medium onion
  • 5 more cups water (for simmering)
  • 3 bay leaves
To make the fries check this out. Otherwise, here is the recipe for the steak and onions.
Mix gluten flour with nutritional yeast, paprika powder and salt. Add water and soy sauce. Stir and form a dough ball. Knead for a couple of minutes to activate the gluten. Let the ball sit for a few minutes. Knead it for a tiny bit and then flatten it to a thick pancake. Cut the “pancake” into four pieces and massage each piece with your fingers to make them a bit thinner.
Mix water with bay leaves. Bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat, so then water is only simmering but not fully boiling. Let the seitan simmer for 30 – 40 minutes, until it’s firmer.
Drain the seitan and use the broth to cook the onions in.
Heat up a pan, add plenty of oil and cook the steaks until crispy on both sides. Not put the pan-fried steaks into a bowl and add 2-3 tablespoons of soy sauce. Mix to cover steaks.  Taste and add more soy sauce, if needed.
