I have not yet tried this but it's prominently featured in my new veggie crockpot cookbook. There's even a mock pot roast recipe using seitan. I know it's made from wheat flour, but does it really taste like meat?<br><br>
What else can you use it for?

You can make a barbecue "beef" sandwich with it. Chop up your seitan (always feels funny saying it. satan!) toss it in some barbecue sauce, heat it up and throw it on a whole wheat bun. Garnish however.<br><br>
Good with an ear of corn.

Seitan?!?<br><br><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
We have a vegan restaurant in town <a href="http://www.sublimerestaurant.com" target="_blank">Sublime</a> that serves an outrageous seitan piccata.

Hmmph, I couldn't find any at the store and it was too late to go to Kimberton, so I'll probably get some tomorrow on my way home.

(Okay, I know it's really pronounced shuh-tahn, but hey, to me, it's say-tan...or is that sei-tan?)

Update on the seitan front:<br><br>
I've revisited this tasty vegetarian "meat" source. Meri introduced altoids and I to her favorite vegan buffet over the weekend and seitan was a prominent feature. There was a curried "chicken pot pie" type dish, a "pepper steak" type dish and something that looked like a chinese "beef & broccoli" stir fry. All were very tasty, although it doesn't exactly taste like meat, you do know you're eating something else.<br><br>
I bought some chicken style seitan on my way home and last night made a singapore noodle stir fry with it. It was VERY yummy. It really does absorb whatever seasonings you put on it. I have just enough left to try one more recipe, I'll probably do BBQ sandwich. They have a "meat" kind too, I guess it's browned longer because it's darker than the chicken style one.<br><br>
Is there a decent amount of protein in it? I didn't look on the label.
