Instructions

  1. Add all steak ingredients to a mixing bowl and mix well. Knead it together until a dough ball is formed, approximately 5 minutes. The ball can then be divided up and rolled out with a rolling pin into burger patty shapes, cookie cutters can help for a perfect shape or go rustic! It may not want to roll out at first but keep working away to get the shape you want.
  2. Add several inches of water to a large pot with a steamer basket and bring to a boil. Put the steaks in the steamer basket and cover with a lid. Steam for 25 minutes, flipping the steaks halfway through so they steam evenly, they will double in size.
  3. In a large air-tight container/bag, mix together all of the marinade ingredients. Remove the steaks from the steamer and coat in the marinade. Let marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes before cooking, or for as long as several days when kept in the fridge.
  4. Add the slices of seitan to a saucepan with the vegetable stock in it, simmer away for 45 minutes and allow to cool. Then BBQ the seitan, brushing with the marinade regularly, until you see char marks. Bruch the patty one last time before service, this helps keep it moist.
  5. Serve in a toasted bun, with vegan mayo, lettuce and tomatoes.
