I'm looking at these picture right now and am seriously craving this sandwich. Ohmigawd it was soo good!
I always figured making your own seitan would be an extremely labour intensive process but it wasn't difficult at all. We did have a brief moment of panic when we accidentally picked up tempura dipping sauce instead of soy sauce and only realized this once we had added it (this is what happens when you're preoccupied with finding the soy sauce with the lowest sodium). I guess it wasn't brief but rather an extended period of worry that only subsided when everything appeared to be coming together correctly.
Did this sandwich taste sweeter just because of that? No, I definitely don't think that was it.
The sauce was soooo flavourful. It was sweet, it was salty, it had garlic....everything you want and need in a sloppy joe.
