Mongolian BBQ Seitan

I found this recipe over at and knew I wanted to put my spin on it. I doubled the sauce and the seitan and used about half the amount of mushrooms the original recipe called for. I like lots of sauce on my dishes and this was so flavorful. I hope you'll enjoy it.

  • 1/2 cup hoisin sauce
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 tablespoons Bragg's
  • 2 tablespoons agave
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chili-garlic sauce
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 3.5 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced
  • 1 box (1.2 pound) seitan, cut into thin strips
  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 4 ounces snow peas, strings removed
  • 2 scallions, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 cups cooked rice, for serving

In a small bowl, make the sauce by whisking together hoisin sauce, water, Braggs, agave, lemon juice, and chili-garlic sauce. Set aside.

In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat and stir-fry mushrooms and seitan until lightly browned and mushrooms have released their juices. Add ginger, cinnamon, and cloves. Let cook for a few more minutes.

 Add the sauce and snow peas to skillet. Reduce heat to medium, and let cook until sauce has thickened. This may happen quickly. Turn off heat and mix in the scallions and cilantro.

Serve over rice.


  1. Oh, you had me at BBQ! I get so happy when I find any bbq foods at restaurants or recipes that are also vegetarian friendly.<3
