Steak From Plants

Recommended Posts




  • 1 tbsp oil (optional)
  • 1 cup finely chopped crimini mushrooms (about 4-5 mushrooms)
  • 1 cup finely diced onion
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp marsala cooking wine

Wet Ingredients

  • ¾ cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1 tbsp white miso
  • 1 tbsp oil


  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp rosemary
  • ¼ tsp sage
  • ¼ tsp smoked paprika

Dry Ingredients

  • 1½ vital wheat gluten
  • ⅓ cup chickpea flour


  1. Heat a pan on medium heat, drizzle oil if using. Add in the chopped mushrooms and onions.
  2. Cook for 5-7 minutes, stirring every once in a while. Monitor the heat so the onions don’t burn.
  3. Add in the minced garlic, and cook 30-60 seconds.
  4. Deglaze the pan with the marsala cooking wine.
  5. Cook off the wine, then turn off the heat and add the cooked mushroom and onion mixture to a blender.
  6. Add the wet ingredients and the seasonings to the blender.
  7. Blend on high for 1 minute or until smooth.
  8. Combine the vital wheat gluten (VWG) and the chickpea flour in a large bowl.
  9. Add the blended wet ingredients to the dry VWG mixture.
  10. Mix with a wooden spoon or with your hands.
  11. Transfer the dough ball to a clean surface and knead a little bit. Add a tiny amount of VWG flour if the dough feels too wet.
  12. Form a dough ball, slice in half and form 2 steaks.
  13. Steam each steak for 30-40 minutes
  14. Than let the steaks rest 10 minutes.
  15. In the meantime, combine the glaze ingredients in a small bowl.
  16. Mix and set aside next to the steaks.
  17. Heat a skillet on medium heat. (I used a striated cooking pan) Add oil if using.
  18. Brush the steak(s) with the glaze, when the pan is sizzling hot add the steak(s). Keep brushing the glaze onto the steak(s) and make more as needed.
  19. Cook both steaks on each side until golden brown.
  20. Serve with your favourite BBQs sauce. I usually mix hp sauce and ketchup! Or you can make more of the glaze, or even use store bought BBQ sauce or whatever you have on hand!
  21. Store in the refrigerator covered for up to one week. Freezer friendly.
