Vegetarian Smoked Seitan BBQ Ribs
My Fiancee is vegetarian so I am always experimenting with new ideas. I love BBQ and thought I would try to re-create some smoked barbecued ribs vegan / vegetarian style. These turned out way better than I expected. Awesome smoke flavor and the texture was spot on. No Smoker? No Problem. Here’s how… For those without a smoker, add 1 teaspoon of liquid smoke to you wet mixture (step #3). Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 25 minutes. While baking, fire up your grill to the hottest temp. Remove from oven and baste each side with BBQ sauce. Grill for about 5 minutes per side. You are looking for a nice sear and a little caramelization.
  1. Preheat smoker to 270 degrees
  2. Combine the first 5 ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Add the water to a measuring cup and add the almond butter, soy sauce, worcestershire sauce & apple cider vinegar. Mix well.
  4. Poor the liquid mixture into the dry mixture and stir to combine.
  5. Kneed the dough mixture for 2 minutes and form into a ball, let rest for 5 minutes.
  6. Roll the dough out into a rectangular shape.
  7. With a sharp knife cut down the center and then across to create 10 equal pieces.
  8. Place the popsicle sticks on top of each piece and fold in, then pinch to seal.
  9. Add your favorite wood to the smoker.
  10. Smoke the seitan ribs for 30 minutes and then turn. Smoke another 30 minutes.
  11. During the last 10 minutes, baste the seitan ribs with barbecue sauce. Flip after 6 minutes to baste the other side.
  12. Remove from smoker and serve with your favorite barbecue sauce.
