I can tell you about seitan. Seitan the prince ofd darkness. Hehehe.<br><br><br><br>
As far as I know seitan is always cooked. It's usually simmered in broth or water. Sometimes people cook it in broth and then fry it. Maybe by raw they mean unfried seitan. If they referred to another recipe and in that recipe they simmered the seitan I would assume that it is supposed to be simmered first.<br><br><br><br>
Being completely raw would be just the gluten dough.

yeah, thats kinda what i thought . but, it just turned into thi rubbery mass , which they then said to roll out... rubbery masses don't roll well. maybe part of the problem i'm having is i don't really even know exactley what it's suppsed to be like. & after going through the 4 + hours & having it come out so... funky it is pretty much known as the evil one around here. thanks

Yep, I've made it with vital gluten and it was rubbery and difficult to roll out. I ended up just streching it with my hands.

Here is a great seitan, scroll down to Tender Seitan Pot Roast, can also make it into beef. I have made it and Mark and I really enjoyed it.<br><br><a href="http://www.vegsource.com/talk/recipes/messages/68558.html" target="_blank">http://www.vegsource.com/talk/recipe...ges/68558.html</a><br><br>

I find the dough difficult to work with as well. Usually I chop it up and simmer it in broth. From there I can do different things with it like put chunks in stew, buzz chunks in processor to bits and make chili - or add it to earthburger mix - or whatever.<br><br>
I use it sparsely (whispering: 'cause it gives me gas!) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
