Stir Fry With Seitan

January 30, 2015 by admin

We recently added this dish to our rotation.  It is simple and delicious- two qualities that are right on target for how we like to cook.

We were inspired to create this dish upon reading about a beef-based version in a British cooking magazine.  We thought to switch out the beef for vegan seitan and go from there.  Seitan is a wheat-based meat substitute.  It’s easy to make at home, or you can buy it at most supermarkets (we like Upton’s).  A few other changes to the original British recipe and we ended up with a family favorite- no leftovers from this one, we’re pleased to say.15-Uptons-Naturals-Traditional


  • 1 T Oil
  • One 12 oz. Package of Seitan
  • 2-3 T Black Bean Sauce
  • 1 T Soy Sauce
  • 1 T Corn Starch
  • 1 Green Pepper, cut into thin strips
  • Scallions for Garnish


  1. Slice the seitan into thin strips. (Some brands/batches of seitan slice better than others.  Don’t panic if your’s crumbles more than it slices.)
  2. Heat the seitan in the oil in a large skillet or wok.
  3. Add the Green Peppers, and sauté 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add the Black Bean sauce and simmer 2-3 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the soy sauce and corn starch together.
  6. Pour the starch into the pan and mix.  Cook through until sauce thickens.
  7. Serve over brown rice and garnish with scallions.

Tip: This whole dish goes together in about ten minutes, so make sure you cook the rice first!
