Instructions In a large mixing bowl, start by adding in all the seitan ingredients EXCEPT for the vegetable stock, mix well.
Add in the vegetable broth and knead for 3-4 minutes. If dough is sticky add a touch more flour, if dough is to dry add a touch of vegetable stock.
Once the dough has been kneaded, divide it into 4 equal pieces.
Take each piece of seitan dough and roll it out, until it resembles a thin (approx. 1/4") steak. Steam the steaks for 45 minutes.
Mix together the breading ingredients in a shallow bowl or plate.
Also mix together binder ingredients in a bowl. This will serve as the egg mixture.
Dip the seitan steaks into the flour mixture to cover, then dip in the wet binder mix and back into the flour to coat well.
Add just enough oil into a frying pan to cover the seitan steaks half way.
Pre heat oil and once ready add in the seitan steaks and fry for 2-3 minutes per side or until golden.
Remove from oil and place onto a paper towel lined plate.
To make the gravy add vegan butter into a pan on medium high heat.
Once the butter has melted, add in the flour and mix until the flour is completely coated in butter.
Slowly whisk in the vegetable broth a little at a time. Until fully incorporated. Whisk in slowly to prevent clumping.
Once gravy has thicken up enough the coat the back of a spoon, remove from heat.
