Because I didn’t feel like going to the grocery store.
A1 Sauce is actually vegan in it’s ingredients and after I read that I was like OMFG I should go buy some. Since yesterday I went to Vegan Shop Up in Brooklyn, a once a month vegan faire of food and treats! There I picked up from Monk’s Meats some Seitan steaks and shalami. The downside of realizing at 7pm that I wanted A1 sauce was the idea of going out in 38 degree weather to get it….nah thx. So I decided to make my own and here it is.
For the SAUCE: This makes about a mason jars amount FYI
-1 cup water
-1 cup balsamic vinegar
-1/2 cup vegan Worchester sauce
-1/2 cup ketchup
-1/2 cup Dijon mustard
-1 tsp celery seed
-1 tsp sea salt
-1/2 tsp fresh black pepper
-4 cloves of garlic minced
-1 tsp onion powder
-1 tbsp. organic sugar
Add all of your ingredients to a pot on the stove and get to a boil.
Don’t go on social media while you wait for the boil or that happens. Anyway, once at boiling turn down to a simmer and stir it periodically for 10 mins.
Once thick enough to coat the back of a spoon you are good. Turn off the heat and let it cool a bit.
I took a tupper ware and put in the seitan steaks and marinated them for about 20 mins in the A1 Sauce.
For a more authentic grilled steak I pulled out my Hamilton Beach Indoor Grill which for $60 is nice especially in NYC where I will not have an actual grill anytime soon.
I only served with peas because Hubz had to go to work early and I forgot so I wanted to get his meal packed up but it’s pretty tasty!
Here’s a video if you to see some of the places I talked about! Happy relaxing Sunday everyone!
