Hi guys,<br><br>
I just started cooking with seitan this past week. There's this home video on youtube, of a guy making a quick seitan patty for one sandwich. Once he added the wet ingredients to the seitan, knead it a little, flattened it like an oval pancake and fried it with a thin layer of oil a <span style="text-decoration:underline;">few minutes on each side</span>, and it was ready. My question is, <span style="text-decoration:underline;">would that seitan be cooked and ok to eat</span>? Is that not still "raw"? All other recipes of making seitan requires boiling or steaming for about an hour.<br><br>

I'd be surprised it cooked all the way through. Never seen seitan panfried before without first being steamed or baked (steaming 15-20 minutes would probably be long enough). I don't think I'd try boiling a patty, but I could see it working out. Seitan burger-type recipes I've seen involve chopping cooked seitan into little bits and then forming a patty held together with something acting as a binder (oats or mashed potato, that sort of thing).

i forgot to mention, the recipe only had about 3-4 tablespoons of vital wheat gluten, so the patty actually came out really thin and crispy. If it was like that, would a few minutes on each side be ok, eatable, and digestible?

If it only had a small amount, it might be fine. I made some meatballs with 1/2 cup vital wheat gluten and they were ready in about 10 minutes.
