This might be one of my most proud recipe moments to date. This VEGAN Steak with Garlic Butter is such a delicious, rich and indulgent recipe that is made from very common ingredients I can get at my local stores! It is the perfect recipe for a special occasion (like New Year’s Eve) or an at home date night for you and someone special.
Ps: if you haven’t heard the news, Greg and I are engaged!!! I shared some photos on Instagram a few days ago. He proposed Christmas morning and we are just so excited! Even though I somewhat knew it was coming, I was still so surprised and cried like a baby. Lol. I’ll insert a photo at the end of this post for those who are interested.
The details & story of this vegan steak:
But let’s talk about this recipe for a second. Two years ago, my mom and I attempted a vegan steak recipe from a popular YouTuber. It took AGES, used so many random ingredients, and was just a whole production. And guys? It turned out AWFUL. I am pretty experienced with seitan and even I am not sure what went wrong. I mean, it was like a fluffy loaf of bread with a black crust…. not meaty or tasty at ALL. It was sad. And I decided I wanted to just push the idea of a vegan steak out of my mind for a while.
But then, our local vegan “butcher” shop came out with vegan steak and I got the craving back and just had to try making my own. I have to give a huge shout out to Sam from It Doesn’t Taste Like Chicken for her recipe because I tried it out one afternoon and it turned out SO similar to the one I get from Real Fake Meats! I feel like I have joined an elite club of people who know how to make an actually tasty vegan meat, without breaking the bank or needing a million ingredients.
Through trial and error I have changed it up quite a bit to make it less time intensive, a bit more flavourful and even easier to make! So today, I am sharing my version of vegan seitan steak and we are jazzing it up even more with garlic butter! This meal is rich, perfect for winter, great with a glass of wine and roasted potatoes, and just feels so *special*.
More to come…
And you’ll want to try out this recipe ASAP because I have a few recipes coming your way this month that use this steak! So you can make a double batch, and then use the leftovers for the upcoming recipes! I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!Print
