Garlic Pepper Seitan

Garlic Pepper Seitan


"I just love seitan and there's only two other recipes for it on this site!! I thought I better add one of my recipes for others like me who love seitan and can't find any recipes for it. I use a lot of garlic, but it's not overwhelming at all. It had a very Asian smell and flavor to it which was not my initial intention, but it works great with noodles, stir fry's, over rice or with a side of mashed potatoes and green beans. Enjoy!"

  1. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add onions and garlic, and cook, stirring until lightly browned. Increase the heat to medium, and add the green pepper and seitan to the pan, stirring to coat the seitan evenly. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 35 minutes in order for the seitan to absorb the flavors. Dissolve cornstarch in cold water, and stir into the skillet. Cook, stirring until thickened, and serve immediately.

This is delicious and easy. I've made it more than once. The only thing I do that isn't in the recipe is to leave some of the broth from the seitan package for the sauce. Yum!

This is an interesting recipe to say the least. While it does have ok flavor it does lack a certain aesthetic appeal. This was my first time using seitan and I wasn’t too happy w/ the results....

This was really quite good! Very easy - does not require a lot of fuss. I will definately make this again. Thank you for sharing.

Since the recipe did not say to drain the Seitan I did not. I believe this is the step the other commentors are missing. Also, as an experiment I threw in some cashews, and I liked the result.

Oh my goodness. This was just so fantastic. I made a big batch of homemade seitan earlier today so I was looking for a fabulous recipe for dinner tonight. This one caught my eye and I'm glad ...

I thought this recipe was delicious and so easy! The only change I made was to cut the olive oil in half because 1/4 cup seemed excessive and with the reduction I still found it to be absolutel...

This was delicious. It had a lot of spicy flavor, more than I would have guessed from the ingredients. (I did add more liquid to make a bit of extra sauce.) This immediately made our 'make ag...

This is my first endeavor into seitan also, I have had it before and enjoyed it (in wraps, etc) so I thought I'd give it a try. I basically did as called for but I don't know "chicken style" sei...
