BBQ Seitan Sandwich with Dilled Yogurt Slaw

dec1_2013 010Remember that lonely little hunk of seitan you have leftover from the Homemade Seitan Pot Pie you made? Here’s a delicious way to use it up and satisfy any BBQ cravings you may be suffering!

This recipe came together quickly for an incredibly satisfying lunch. Normally I don’t like slaw on my BBQ, but in this case, having  a bit of crunchy, cool veg with a bit of a dill kick really helped pull everything together.

As you can see, we used sandwich thins for ours – simply because I try to limit my bread consumption a bit – but this would be equally delicious with a homemade bun, roll, or toasted bread. Do what makes you (and your taste buds) happiest!

If you’ve already made your 1-pound batch of seitan, this uses 1/3 of the recipe (or one chunk of seitan) and yields 2 very hefty sandwiches. If you haven’t yet made it, you can always make a batch for this recipe and then save the other 2/3 for something else… like pot pie. Mmmmmmmm.

1/3 of a completed batch of seitan
1/2 – 1 cup BBQ sauce of your choice (we used locally produced BarBQPhoria – and WOW it’s good)
1 Tbsp high-heat oil, for frying
1 cup organic broccoli slaw (from Trader Joe’s)
2 Tbsp Greek yogurt (plain would work fine too)
1 tsp dried dill
salt + pepper, to taste
bread of your choosing

  • Slice the seitan into bite-sized chunks (approximately 1-inch wide and 1/2-inch thick).
  • BarBQPhoria-tossed seitanOver medium-high heat, fry the seitan chunks in safflower or grapeseed oil (something that can take a higher heat) – approximately 2 minutes per side. This is just to help crisp the pieces up a bit so they are a little firmer on the outside.
  • Remove your pan from the heat and place the seitan in a small bowl. Toss in BBQ sauce, stirring well to coat all the pieces. Set aside.
  • dec1_2013 008In a medium-sized bowl, combine the slaw, yogurt, and dill. Stir well to incorporate and test the taste. Add salt and pepper as desired, then set aside.
  • Remove any remaining oil from your pan and return the BBQ-coated seitan. Saute over medium another 2-3 minutes, allowing the BBQ sauce to caramelize a bit.
  • Transfer the hot BBQ seitan from your pan to whatever bread/bun you’re using. Divide evenly into 2-3 sandwiches (2 hefty or 3 a bit more sparse). Do the same with the slaw – mounding atop the seitan. Pop on the top layer of bread and enjoy!
