As a vegan, I've eaten some pretty good gyros over the years, but, trust me, nothing comes even close to this one! I promise, if you make it, you will become a gyro snob, just like I am now.
This is the best steak texture I've ever achieved and it came out of several tests with varying ingredients and cooking methods.

Make it once, and it will become your quintessential sandwich meat. This Washed Flour Seitan is meaty, smoky, flavorful beyond belief, and a perfect vegan dish to impress and shut up all the vegan naysayers in your life.
Seitan on steroids? Vegans and omnivores alike can't believe this is seitan... but IT IS. And, like most homemade seitans, it is inexpensive and good for you (well, unless you are gluten intolerant 😣). Most of the ingredients you probably already have, and those you do not, I highly urge you to get, as they will up your seitan game, and you will use them onward and often, for sure! The visual of this Vegan Pork Brisket is everything and is for sure to be a show stopper on any mezze plate. It is unbelievable in various appetizers, puff pastries, in sandwiches, pasta dishes, etc.
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.

This is a new version of my original vegan prime rib(less) roast made from washing flour. I subbed out fresh beetroot for powder to yield a firmer texture, as well as added more beefy flavoring to the mix. Still fancy enough for your holiday table, but easy enough to be enjoyed more often.
This is a slight variation to my first washed flour turkey recipe. I left out the mushrooms, started with a little more flour for a larger yield, and slightly adjusted the amount of seasonings and tofu. I really twisted the dough when knotting this one and wrapped in a cheesecloth to keep it from expanding in my slow cooker. I think this improved the texture, giving it a better "meat grain," but it's still just as flavorful and juicy as the original.
This vegan, cajun, deli-style turkey gets simmered in a slow cooker in a delicious broth, then roasted to develop the crust. The chicken-style bouillon and extra swirls of cajun seasoning throughout really pack in the flavor!

This vegan chicken souvlaki is juicy, savory, and perfect to bring to any barbecue or potluck. I used washed flour seitan chicken as my base, but any chicken-style seitan should work well. If you do wash flour, you can save the starch to make flatbreads!
This vegan seitan prosciutto is just like I remember the real thing. It's salty, savory, and even a little bit funky. It's simple, yet elegant enough for your next charcuterie, or wrapped around your favorite fruits or veggies.
What could be easier than throwing everything into your slow cooker? I love to simmer like this for the best shreds, and it works awesome for cutlets or a roast, too. You can always add more seasoning to the dough, (especially if roasting) but this amount leaves the seitan "open" to be used as you would chicken in lots of dishes. Hang on to that broth cause it makes an amazing soup base or gravy!
