Homemade Seitan Cheese Steak

Fucking yum.  This was my first try at making homemade seitan and it came out pretty damn good.  I might have left it in the oven for one too many minutes which made it a little extra chewy but otherwise the recipe was good.  I sauted the seitan with onions and bell pepper, slapped it in a bun and slatthered it in a nutritional yeast sauce. 

I am now officially on the hunt for the perfect seitan recipe so if anyone has one they use send it my way:) 

Note:  You don't have to be fancy pants like me and make homemade seitan you can just buy yours at your local grocery store. 

Vegan Cheese Steak

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups thinly sliced seitan
2 bell peppers thinly sliced (I used one green and one red)
1 onion sliced
1 recipe  nutritional cheese sauce or vegan cheese of your liking
4 french bread rolls

1.  Heat oil on medium heat in a large pan.  Add bell pepper and onion and saute until they begin to soften.  Add the seitan and cook until heated through.

2.  While the seitan mix is cooking prepare cheese sauce.

3.  Once the seitan and cheese sauce is done assemble sandwiches.  Spread a thin layer of veganaise on roll top with a healthy amount of seitan, top with cheese sauce and ase easy as that your in vegan heaven:)


  1. Sounds and looks yummy. I don't like seitan but I might try this with just portabello mushrooms, onions and peppers and smoother it with cheezy sauce. Thanks for the idea. :)

  2. Love your blog! Will definitely try some of your recipes.
    Do you really cook all this delicious food and then drink Bud Light? ;)

    Thanks for sharing!
