3 comments on “Seitan Slow Cooker Style

  1. I stumbled upon your blog while looking for seitan recipes and I see that you cook with it a fair amount. I was wondering if you had any tips for a newbie who’s trying to experiment with it. I’m a die-hard carnivore, but I’d like to do some more cooking with seitan. I have absolutely no experience with it, but would love any tips you might have.

  2. So what I should do is turn this into a big post, which I’ll do after the 8 Days of Cabot are over. But there are basically two things to remember:

    1. Seitan, by itself, is essentially flavorless so you are going to need to marinate it, simmer it in flavorful liquid or otherwise do something to it to give it flavor.

    2. Seitan needs to be cooked, usually by boiling or sauteing before eating. This makes it far less chewy and helps get flavor into it.
