BBQ sauce ▶︎
Sliced pickles
Sliced raw white onion
Thick texas toast


1. Prepare baking dish by coating lightly with oil. Set aside. Preheat oven to 375 degrees fahrenheit.

2. Hand mix the wet and dry batches separately. Combine dry mixture with half of wet mixture. Mix until combined completely. Knead for 3 minutes until all is mixed thoroughly and the dough has an elastic texture.

3. Form into a rough oval shape and place in baking dish. Lightly coat the raw seitan with oil.

4. Add rest of braising liquid around the casserole dish, pouring over raw seitan.

5. Place in oven and bake for about 25 minutes.

6. At the 25 minute mark, flip loaf over. Place back in oven for another 20 minutes. If you will be putting this on the grill, be sure to fire-up the grill. Prepare this BBQ sauce ( while your seitan is cooking.

7. Remove the seitan a few minutes before its done and baste the seitan with some of the remaining liquid in the dish. Place back in oven for another 5-10 minutes. The liquid should be almost evaporated and thickened. Remove from oven and leave to cool for a few minutes.

8. Once the seitan is cooled, it’s time to finish it on the grill. Be sure the grill is blazing hot and on high heat. In a casserole dish, or the same that the seitan was baked in, cover it with BBQ sauce being sure it coats all sides well.

9. Place on the grill and allow to brill for about 8 minutes on each side to create the killer char that will make this finish dish.

10. While this is grilling, gather all the fixin’s to complete your BBQ board, or BBQ sandwich. Fresh sliced pickles, sliced raw white onion, Texas toast, extra BBQ sauce and of course a toll of paper towels.

11. After flipping brisket and getting some great char on both sides, remove from grill. Its time to assemble.

12. Slice the brisket as thin as you can and serve with all the fixin’s!





  1. Update from earlier post: First of all, from this single recipe, my husband and I got about 7 meals total! I can't believe what a good value this thing is in terms of being the basis for many different meals. But, here is the real kicker! I said in my first post that this would not pass off as actual beef brisket, at least not in this format. HOWEVER, for one of the later meals, I did like the video mentions and took part of it turned it into "ground beef" that I used as a filling for taquitos/flautas. After grinding it in a blender, I sauteed it in a skillet with finely chopped onions and jalapenos and added some store-bought taco seasoning for convenience. (I'm sure a custom fresh spice blend would be better but I was just being lazy!) OMG! I am serious when I say that I don't think anybody would have a clue that this wasn't just normal beef flautas. Except for maybe it was even BETTER than beef flautas because it was very tender and didn't have any unappetizing tough pieces. Thanks again for sharing such a versatile and economical recipe!

  2. If you wanna eat meat just eat meat. Packaging something to look like meat and taste like meat is wrong in so many ways. Number one the plant is no longer in its whole original form. So its just as unhealthy as eating meat.

    Secondly you’re reenacting causing harm to an animal by recreating eating it. If you took a vow to stop beating your wife and tell her you’ll hit a pillow, fine. But when she sees a full blown doll that looks just like her, she doesn’t smile and say oh thank God that’s not really me. She’s like oh fuck he’s getting better at it.

    Veganism isn’t just about not eating meat. It’s the compassion and empathy that stands behind it. Like eating a vegan hot dog or a disgusting turkey loaf for thanksgiving. It’’s still recreating eating an animal.
