We made a couple protein sides a loooong time ago. Z had some hanger steak and A had some seitan. All we needed was something to spice them up. We tried out the recipe below, enjoyed it thoroughly, wrote up this post, and then forgot to hit “post” although we have made it several times since.
If all goes well this time around, this will post while we are away on our honeymoon — as a way of keeping the blog active, even while we are away.
Asian-Fusion-y Steak/Seitan Marinade
For 1/2 lb of meat or seitan (we like our sauce — you could go with less, but why would you?).
2 tbsp tamari
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1/2 tsp cayenne (this makes it pretty spicy, so you can regulate the heat with less — or more — of this if you want)
1/2 tsp sweet hungarian paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp plum sauce
1 clove of garlic, crushed
Seems almost silly to write out these instructions — but just to be clear… combine all the ingredients. Toss in with meat and let sit for as long as you can stand, and then fry up your steak/seitan. Enjoy! We did!
