Texas Dry Rub Seitan Steak with Chili BBQ Sauce

BBQ'ing vegetables and Seitan is great regardless time of the year (I see BBQ'ing as a year-round cooking method, not something seasonal). Seitan is very protein rich yet the absolute no-no for those of you who are allergic to Gluten.

I make my own Seitan, but pre-made is fine if you're in a rush.

1 tbsp mixed crushed peppercorns (Black, Red, Green and White)
1 tsp Chipotle Chili Pepper
1 tsp kosher salt
1 tsp brown sugar
1 tsp granulated garlic
1 tsp granulated onion

Cover the Seitan steaks in the dry rub and cover with a plastic wrap and keep in the fridge for an hour. Bring the steaks to room temperature before throwing them on the grill.

Here's how you make a fantastic Chili Barbecue Sauce to serve with the Seitan steaks.

1,5 dl Ketchup (If you don't make your own, chose Heinz as it contains no High Fructose Corn Syrup)
1 tbsp Vegan Worcestershire Sauce (recipe found here).
1 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
1 tsp Chili Powder
1 tsp granulated onion
1 tsp ground black pepper

Serve with grilled vegetables.


  1. Hej,

  2. Fantastisk blogg! Slänger upp länk på min egen! Keep it up.

  3. Hi Stacey,

    Thanks for checking out the blog.

    I make my own Seitan if I'm not in a rush, so washing it is. I don't eat a lot of Seitan as I generally try to avoid gluten, but sometimes it's hard not to as there's so much one can do with it.

    If you don't have a recipe I can post the one I use which is almost identical to the one found in the Candle Café Cookbook.

    I hope you like living in Nacka!


  4. Johan!

  5. Nacka is a great place , we live towards Kvarnholmen. I found a couple of recipes online.


  6. Hi Christofer,

    Just found my way here, very inspiring recipes!
    I wouldn't mind though if you'd like to share your recipe for making seitan, if it's not too much of a trouble.

    Best regards,
