COFFEE ON THE TABLE

Who said that people on a vegetarian diet can’t eat steaks?

 

Today I want to share with you a simple recipe of Seitan Steaks! Of course, anyone who follows a vegetarian diet will not eat steaks from any animal, but nowadays there are plenty alternatives that allow us to replicate any meat dish without lacking anything in terms of flavor or texture

 

When I became vegan (8 years ago), I remember trying some tricky seitan and hating the experience. The texture was terrible and I didn’t have the expertise to turn that food into something worth eating. The years went by and today not only are more and better seitan alternatives, as I learned to dominate the “beast” and make it whatever I want!

 

Seitan is an excellent alternative to meat as it is high in protein, has very few carbohydrates and almost no fat. Oh! And it has ZERO cholesterol!

 

I know that many of you have already had dark experiences with seitan, but I promise that after making this recipe that I bring to you, your opinion will change and you will start looking at seitan as another valid and super tasty protein source!

THIS RECIPE IS:

EASY | QUICK | HIGH IN PROTEIN | SUPER TASTY | JUICY | ELEGANT

 

 

I’ve been wanting to make some seitan steaks with coffee sauce for a while. A classic that everyone knows well and that most people love. I wanted to bring all the flavor and creaminess of the traditional coffee sauce combined with tender and delicious seitan steaks.

 

Nothing in this recipe is complicated or strange and it gets ready quickly!

 

We start by cutting the seitan into slices, always trying to cut in the opposite direction to the fibre, this will make the steak more tender and less spongy. The slices should be thin but not too thin so they don’t break during cooking. Then we cover the seitan with smoked paparica and 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and let it marinate for about 15 minutes.

 

Meanwhile, chop the garlic cloves and place them in a skillet, add a generous amount of olive oil, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce and let it heat up. When it is hot, place the seitan steaks one by one in the pan without overlapping each other. We let it brown on one side and turn it over to brown on the other. The seitan needs to be very golden and with almost caramelized edges.

 

Once ready, we place them in a bowl while we make the sauce.

 

Without washing the skillet or letting it cool, we will deglaze it with 1/2 cup of whiskey, this process serves to remove from the bottom of the pan the bits of seitan, olive oil, garlic and soy sauce that remain stuck there (if the garlic is very burnt, remove first and discard with a spoon). Let it reduce for about 3 minutes. Then, we add the cream and coffee and stir to mix all the ingredients well. We let it reduce for about 5 minutes or until the cream starts to get a little thicker. At this point we adjust  the flavors using salt and black pepper to taste. When the sauce has reduced and has a creamy texture, remove it from the heat and add a tablespoon of butter. This butter will bring more flavor and shine to our sauce.

 

Your sauce should not be served cold, so when it is ready it is ideal to plate and serve.

 

I chose to serve it with sautéed greens and some fries, but you can choose whatever you like the most.

 

To drink, I suggest Dow’s Quinta do Bomfim 2019, a vintage port that pairs perfectly with this dish. With notes of blackberry, black pepper and a subtle presence of a floral aroma, this port wine embraces all the flavors present in this dish, enhancing them.

 

Now tell me, are you mouth watering?
