With the time Ashley, Kaleigh and I spent in the woods last month, we realized that we were often eating vegan jerky. It is an easy high protein and fat treat to take on a hiking trail. However, vegan jerky is often expensive and not always very good. The solution? Make it myself.
I made it with a variant of my basic seitan recipe. I then made a sauce and marinated it in the oven for several hours on a low tempurature. This gave it a really dry texture, much like traditional jerky.
This is a recipe I will share as I perfect it. Currently, it is really good. I even shared it with a number of folks at work, nearly all of which said that they would not have know it was not meat. It came out wonderfully dense in flavor.
