BBQ Seitan Sandwiches

BBQ Seitan Sandwich on a ONE BUN with a side of tri-color potato salad
Full disclosure this is my wife's recipe. She rocks these once every 2 weeks or so. They are always delicious. Of course this recipe is my twist on it. Since we try to avoid oil at all costs it takes some label reading top find a "clean" BBQ sauce. The one if used for this batch was from Organicville.

BBQ Seitan sandwiches with grilled onions, peppers, and mushrooms
These oil-free grilled sandwiches were inspired by the tasty subs we used to eat at a cheese steak place in San Francisco.
Preparation Time:  5-10 minutes
Cooking Time:  20 minutes
Servings: 3-4
2 packages of Sliced Seitan (smoked if available) Chopped/Sliced about a ¼ inch thick.
½ small onion sliced
½ bell pepper sliced
½ cup of sliced mushrooms
onion powder
garlic powder
black pepper
365 chili powder valle de sol
BBQ sauce
Heat a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat.
Add onions, peppers, and mushrooms. Saute for a few minutes. As they start to stick release them by adding some water or broth just a few tablespoons at a time. Season with the spices. As much or as little as you like. Set aside onece the onions are sufficiently browned and cooked through. Set aside.
Keep pan nice and hot. Add seitan and another tablespoon of broth or water. Sprinkle meat with spices. Brown stirring frequently until meat is nice and browned. Don’t be afraid to get some nice char on some of the meat. It is hard to get it too browned when you are using non-stick. Continue to add liquid as it evaporates. Just enough to keep the bottom of the pan moist and the meat “moving”.
Once the meat is browned add about ½ to ¾ of a cup of bbq sauce. Just enough to coat the meat. Heat for 30 seconds stirring the whole time and turn off the heat.
Assemble sandwiches by layering meat and pepper mix adding any additional hot sauce you may require. If you are like my friend Wade you always require more condiments. We call this "THE WORK". The work is important. Remember that. 

To your health,
