*Note: Many consider Guinness to be non-vegetarian/non-vegan due to the company’s reported use of isinglass, a fish product, to remove extra yeast. Guinness maintains that its products are animal-product-free, but admits a possibility that minute quantities of isinglass might be carried into the beer. If this is a concern, try Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout or another vegan beer.
Just in time for St. Patty’s day feasting. Serve up with a bit of rye bread and you’re all set!
1 batch of seitan (to make from scratch, see here)
3 each, carrots and stalks of celery, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
2 potatoes, chopped
1-2 bottles of Guinness, depending on taste
1.5 cups broth
2 tbsp. steak sauce or soy sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp. thyme or mixed seasoning
Saute seitan in olive oil until browned. Add in steak sauce or soy sauce and turn to coat. Remove from heat and set aside. Meanwhile, saute celery, carrot, potato, onion, garlic for about 5 minutes. Combine the rest of the ingredients (sans seitan) and stir. Add in seitan and simmer until thickened, about 45 minutes.
