Enjoy classic BBQ flavor with filling vegan seitan, or wheat meat. The sliced seitan needs time in a hot pan to turn brown and crispy; let it sear before coating it with the tangy ketchup mixture for the best texture. A side of sweet potato chips makes the perfect pairing for a fast weeknight meal.

This was so tasty and so easy! I've never cooked with seitan before but I'm a convert. It takes on the flavor of whatever you saute it with and the sauce in this recipe was so good after it cooked with the seitan. A definite do again for a quick, easy and yummy dinner
