Steak Fajita

As promised, I have been using some Seitan Steaks for other fun, unintended purposes. My first thing was what turned out to be an amazing fajita! I struggle coming up with good one player foods but this one is quick, easy and hits the mark.

Steak Fajita

1 large Seitan Steak (not yet fried)
1 tortilla
1/2 of a red pepper
1/2 med onion
1 tablespoon of oil
1 tablespoon of vegan sour cream
1 tablespoon of Seitan Steak marinade
1/2 teaspoon of hot sauce

In a frying pan, bring the oil to med heat and add the onion and red pepper (copped into slices) Once the onion beings to become aromatic, add the Seitan Steak (also sliced) and hot sauce. Fry until seitan is beginning to get crispy (about 5-8 minutes). Heat a tortilla and smear the vegan sour cream on 1/3 of tortilla. Then place the seitan, onion, and pepper on the sour cream. Pour the tablespoon of marinade over the top of the fajita. Fold the bottom of the tortilla up and roll the rest. This will give you a good bottom that should not break apart while eating.

Oh no! I just ate the last of my homemade tortillas. What a shame, this would habe been a perfect filling. Now I have to make a new batch ;)
