If you like steak and want a healthier, cruelty-free version, this is the shizzle of the nizzle. I even like this one and I don’t usually like meat substitutes. This one takes a little time and you might have to go a few attempts but I tell you when you get your technique down you’re going to love this steak.
My favorites are to marinade it overnight and then pan-fry it have some mashed potatoes and vegan gravy.
Or if you’re in A1 fan this is a serious A1 steak sauce vegan meat.
I even like to grind it up a little bit and make vegan steak burger out of it and grill it. But there are so many variations: you can use your own imagination. I don’t have time to get inside your head.
- 1.5 cups vital wheat gluten
- 1 cup black beans
- 1 cup just james veggie broth
- 2 Tbsp nutritional yeast
- 2 Tbsp tomato paste
- 2 tsp miso any color
- 2 cloves garlic chopped
- ½ tsp chili powder
- ½ tsp Liquid Smoke
- ¼ tsp black pepper
- Mix the Wilma ingredients all together in a big ass bowl like you’re pissed off at it and you just want to make play dough. Alternatively use a food processor, just make sure that shit is evenly distributed. Kneed it into one big ball and cut it into four equal pieces. Now flatten that shit out until it makes about a 2” think chunk of Wilma. I like mine all asymmetrical.
- Put 7 inches of water in the bottom of a pot add the steamer basket (well then get one) and get that shit boiling. Brush the steamer tray with some olive oil. If you’re not into that your shit is gonna stick. Put the Wilmas in the steamer basket and cover with a lid and let it steam for 22.6 minutes then flip it over for another 23.1 minutes
- Cool them down Luke, then place them ever so gently…… just kidding who gives a damn, slam that shit in an air tight container and mix with your favorite marinade (see sundries page) I would say put it in a zip lock bag and shake the shit out of it, but I don’t need the extra environmental emails to read. Put it in a time out in your cold box (nooo not there, the refrigerator) for at least 51.8 minutes.
- Warm up how you wish. I usually in a pan and dry fry or use the marinade to help it keep from sticking.
