We got this recipe from Post Punk Kitchen (Isa Chandra Moskowitz love!) and it isn't called a stir-fry there but I'm going to call it that, I hope that's alright. Anytime there's veggies sauteed in a pan and a sauce added to said pan then it's a stir-fry in my eyes. Is that bad?
This was sooo good! I love broccoli! Do most people really hate broccoli? I feel like that's a really big myth. But in case it is true, serve this to your broccoli-hating family member or friend and I'm sure they'll be singing broccoli's praises. Or at least they won't turn their nose up in disgust.
This sauce is really flavourful. It's not too sweet but it's not overly savory either. It's a great mix. Much better than store-bought sauce, any day!
Oh I almost forgot to mention the seitan we used. Store-bought. Sorry can't do it all in one day. It's really good! It's by WestSoy and it pretty much tastes like homemade seitan, which can be quite a process. So when you can't find the time this is a good alternative. We found it at Wegmans.
Mix all of the sauce ingredients together in a large measuring cup.
Preheat large pan over medium high heat. Add oil when heated then saute onion with salt until browned. Add pepper and cook until softened. Then add seitan and cook until it’s browned or for approx. 10 mins. Our seitan didn’t brown too much that I could see. Add garlic and black pepper and saute until fragrant.
Dump in the broccoli, give it a stir and cover the pan to cook. Take a look every once in a while to make sure nothing is getting stuck. Once the broccoli is softened, add the sauce, toss to coat, and cook until everything is heated through, about 5 mins.
We served our stir-fry with basmati rice.
