Today is National Prime Rib Day, so I thought it would be
nice to share a nice vegan steak recipe… so we can enjoy a “classic American”
meal with the cows.  I think the
cows will enjoy this recipe just as much as we do.  I modified
this
fabulous recipe
just a bit… Thanks Vegan

Vegan Steak!

Dry ingredients:

1 cup vital wheat gluten


¼ cup nutritional yeast


2 TBSP. corn meal


1 TSP. onion powder


½ tsp Krazy Salt, or other seasoning

 

Wet ingredients:

¼ cup rehydrated mushrooms (I used a mix, and placed in 2
cups hot water), reserve mushroom soaking liquid

¾ cup water


2 TBSP vegan Worcestershire sauce

1 TBSP tahini


½ tsp Dijon mustard


½ tsp truffle oil

¼ tsp smoked salt, or regular sea salt

 

These are the mushrooms… they look strange, but are uber delicious!

Basting Sauce:

½ cup reserved mushroom liquid

2 cloves garlic

3 TBSP vegan Worcestershire sauce

fresh ground black pepper

Blend all ingredients together.

(I placed in blender without cleaning the previous “wet
ingredients” so there was still a bit of that in there)

 

Steak Makin': 

Preheat oven to 350.

Mix together the dry ingredients.

Blend all liquid ingredients in a blender.  It is going to resemble a creamy mushroom soup.

Mix the liquid ingredients into the dry. Knead for 30
seconds to a minute.

Slice or pull off pieces and flatten into steak-shaped rounds.

Place steaks on a non-stick or lightly greased baking dish.

Bake for 10 minutes, then flip and baste with some of the
basting sauce.

Return to the oven for another 20-25 minutes or so, until
most of the basting liquid is gone.

Once ready to serve, quickly sear in a pan with a touch of
vegan butter and vegan Worcestershire sauce to finish it off.

I served with mashed potatoes, broccoli and Miso Gravy from Happy Herbivore with added onions and mushrooms…. and I used the reserved mushroom liquid for the gravy… delicious!
