You will need bamboo or metal skewers for this recipe.
8 ounces seitan, prepared, sliced thin or cut into 1-inch chunks
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
Steps to Make It
First, be sure to soak your bamboo skewers in water to prevent burning.
Place seitan in a zip-lock sealable bag or in a shallow pan and coat well with barbecue sauce. Allow to marinate for at least one hour; longer is better.
Preheat grill to medium-high. Place seitan chunks on the soaked bamboo skewers and baste well with extra sauce. (Depending on your grill, seitan can also be placed directly on well-greased grates.) Grill for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly charred, basting occasionally with extra barbecue sauce.
Eat your barbecued seitan right off the stick, or, slice leftovers thinly and make sandwiches. Enjoy!
- For this recipe, the flavor comes mostly from the barbecue sauce, so it's highly recommended that you use a good quality sauce. Choose one without cheap added fillers (such as high-fructose corn syrup), or experiment with various gourmet and unique-flavored varieties.
