This is the best steak texture I've ever achieved and it came out of several tests with varying ingredients and cooking methods. Though there are a couple unique ingredients, the good news is you should be able to source them online, and you'll get a lot of use out of them if you like to make a lot of beefy-style seitan!
This one recipe yields both a middle-eastern beef shish-kabob seitan AND a pastrami seitan (see instructions on how to finalize). It is completely up to you if you want to make it just be kabobs, just the pastrami, or both. The taste is there to serve both needs and depending on how you slice or finalize it, it will become two different and unique mock meats. In the notes, I also included the recipe for the traditional crispy Serbian cornbread, because this goes with it like you won't believe.

The addition of black garlic and Guinness, along with porcini mushrooms give this burger an earthy *meat* flavour. The addition of TVP gives the burgers a meaty texture. Black garlic is easy to make from fresh garlic bulbs. The easiest and less odorous way I've found is to pop them into roasting bags and put them into your slow cooker on a yogurt heating. It takes over a week, but it's much cheaper than buying them already made.
