If you haven't made seitan because of the time it takes, you need to try it in the instant pot.

Takes 10 min max to mix and roll out
3 minute cook time, 35 natural release.


Basic recipe from Momma Cheapskate on youtube. It's a 3 yr old video and I am floored how easy this is.

2 cups vital wheat gluten
1/2 cup nutritional yeast
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sage
1/2 tsp thyme
dash chili powder
1 1/2 cups broth
1 tbsp liquid smoke
2 tbsp soy sauce

I've made small batches, testing and tweaking the spices and using broth sometimes instead of water (which it doesn't need if the dough is seasoned correctly) but really, her recipe is fantastic and easy.

I've tried it like that, loose in broth, and wasn't fond of the texture, even when pan seared the next day.
I've since been wrapping in foil under pressure the same time as for steaming. On a rack over water.
