Crock Pot Roast

This is a simple way to get to know vital wheat gluten. You’ll need a crock pot (if you don’t have one, just use an oven-proof pot & lid and bake at your oven’s lowest setting.

Don’t let the instructions intimidate you. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to whip this together in 15 minutes!

One onion, chopped
One clove garlic, crushed, chopped
1 tsp.-Tbsp. toasted sesame oil

Sauté onion & garlic in oil.

Add:
2 cups water
¼ cup soy sauce
2 tsp. kitchen bouquet (you can use 1-1/4 tsp. liquid smoke instead and get somewhat of a “ham” flavor — but be sure to add ¼ tsp. crushed clove and 1 tsp. to 1 Tbsp. maple syrup to the butter/garlic coating at the end of this recipe).

Mix together and add:
2 Tbsp. Nutritional yeast
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. sage
¼ tsp. poultry seasoning
(again, if you have herb mixtures you already enjoy, substitute and experiment with this)
Let this mixture come to a boil, then simmer for 5 minutes.

In a bowl, mix together:
2 cups vital wheat gluten (not gluten flour, use real vital wheat gluten)
2 Tbsp. Nutritional yeast
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. pepper
1 tsp. EACH onion powder and garlic powder

(Okay, this is starting to sound just like the dry mixture we put in the water, and yes, it is pretty much the same—that’s part of the secret of the fabulous taste of the roast. Let’s continue.)

After the liquid mixture has simmered, strain liquid into another container and add onion/garlic to gluten mixture.

Then, pour one cup of the liquid into the gluten mixture, adding ¼ to ½ to 1 cup more of the remaining liquid mixed with some water (1/4 to ½ cup). Continue mixing until you have a moist dough ball.

Grease crock pot (if you don’t use a crock pot, an ovenproof dish will work) with vegan shortening (spectrum makes this). Pour half remaining liquid into pot.

Mix:
One clove garlic, crushed & chopped
1 Tbsp. Vegan margarine

Rub roast top and bottom with butter/garlic mixture. Place in crock pot or oven pan.
Pour remaining liquid over roast. Cook in crock pot 6-8 hours or bake at 250 degrees for 5 hours.

Just as with “seitan,” this can be sliced for sandwiches, fried with onions, peppers & garlic, stripped and thrown into a veggie stir-fry.
