This seitan satay is inspired by the satay that originates in Indonesia, and which is served in many Southeast Asian countries in regional variations. The grilled meat skewers are often dipped in peanut sauce.
In the colonial era, the dish became part of Dutch cuisine and is extremely popular in the Netherlands. That way I got to know satay as a child and have worked a lot on vegetarian and later vegan versions.
The seitan sticks can also be prepared in advance and taken to a barbecue to put on the grill, and I also like them cold from the lunchbox.
What equipment do I need to steam seitan?
I use a Multicooker* to steam the seitan, but before I had it, I used to put a vegetable steamer* in my rice cooker, that worked well too. It should also be possible to steam the seitan in a pot with the steamer, but I haven’t tried that. I would steam the seitan a little longer in that case. Steaming a little longer is no problem, but if you don’t steam it long enough, you might end up with chewing gum.
I also have a delicious soy satay on my blog, it is a bit quicker and easier than steaming the seitan.
What goes well with Seitan Satay?
They are best served with the easy spicy peanut sauce you can find here.
A nice quick and easy side to serve with these is Indonesian noodle dish bami goreng.
These dishes go very well with the easy bami goreng as well:
