Finger licking good Barbecue Ribs! Oh, and these are Vegan Ribs! Who would’ve thought, right?! I have been curious about Seitan and wondered what it tastes like really. I didn’t think I would be able to find any in my town here in Mexico but I gave it a shot and yes! Vital Wheat Gluten (Seitan) is available at a little health food store not too far away. So first things first, we have to barbecue this stuff up. I mean you can throw anything on a charcoal grill and it will taste good.
Cooking these up require some baking time and then a little grilling time. The anticipation was killing me. As soon as they were off the grill I took a piece of the corner rib and popped it in my mouth. Haw…Hawhaa…HOT! I basically burned my mouth insides pretty bad! Don’t do that ladies and gentlemen, wait for the food to cool.
Delicious Rating: So how do they taste? Like rib meat! Believe it not, I am serious. Rib meat without the bone. The second time I made these for a BBQ with some friends. One thought that they were actually ribs and I had taken the bones out! I think grilling them over charcoal really infuses that deep BBQ taste. Plus, the sauce was super delicious so nobody was thinking that it wasn’t real meat. So I like seitan ribs! I am excited to cook more with this vital wheat gluten and share my delicious (hopefully) easy recipes with you!

If you let the liquids and wheat gluten sit together for too long it will become an unstretchable dough, so work fast once combined.
When I cut the seitan into strips, It could see that the consistency was so similar to meat. Pretty amazing.
They smell so good cooking over charcoal. Plus the grill marks give that flavor of bbq’d meat that you can’t get off of any gas grill.
