Beef Stroganoff You Thought You'd Never Have Again...

What you need: 

olive oil, as needed
1 large onion, diced
6 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups white mushrooms, sliced
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
black pepper, to taste
2 cups vegan cream of mushroom soup (I use Imagine Brand)
2 tablespoons vegan soup cream (I use Tofutti Better Than Sour Cream)
1 pound seitan, prepared and cut into strips ((I use Beef Minit Meat)
pasta of choice, cooked, to serve 4

What you do: 

1. In a large frying pan, heat olive oil on medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Saute mixture until onions are browned. Add mushrooms, and saute them until soft on low heat. Add sea salt, garlic salt, and some black pepper.
2. When mushrooms are soft, add cream of mushroom soup, and sour cream to the pan and mix well until creamy.
3. Add prepared seitan strips. Cook on low 15-20 minutes, so that the seitan can soak up all the delicious gravy.
4. Serve over pasta, or add your pasta to the pan and mix.
This will be the best vegan stroganoff you have ever had! I usually pair this meal with a yummy garden salad. This stroganoff tastes exactly like the dish my dad used to make when I was a kid. Since becoming vegan, I never thought I would have it again. Delicious!!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Very good, I kinda screwed up on the sauce but will not make that error next time! 

We loved it regardless and look forward to making it again.
Thanks for sharing.

I make a "Stroganoff" using fake beef strips and mushrooms also, and the one posted sounds pretty good. The main difference with mine is that I add Sherry.  A "Stroganoff" (to be called Stroganoff) must include sour cream and Sherry. There are lots of substitutions for sour cream, and beef, but no substitution for Sherry, and why should there be? Is there something I don't know? Is Sherry non-vegan, or non-vegetarian?

if it has isinglass in it (which most wines do) it is not vegan

You can buy Vital Wheat Gluten (most regular grocery stores have it) and make your own. Its so easy! Its basically adding seasoning, water, then either boiling or baking it. There's tons of recipes on here telling you how to do it. Much cheaper than the pre-made as well!

Thanks so much for getting back to me! 
For the Vital wheat Gluten, does a certain brand carry it...like: boca, Morningstar farm, lightlife, Yves...and is it normally refrigerated or frozen?

Thanks again!  ;)b

I have a hard time finding even Bob's Red Mill in my local grocery stores sometimes. If you have a Whole Foods they should have some in bulk and it's much cheaper!

It comes in packages like flour.  One brand is  Bob's Red Mill.  Hope this helps.

Yes that really helps me, Thanks! I totally know what it is now. I remember seeing it before. Thanks again!  ;)b

This looks great!! Does anyone know where I can get the seitan from? I live in New York and NO stores have it! I've been to whole foods, trader joes and all of my local health food stores, that carry veg. stuff. I just don't get it? It's a real bummer too because I LOVE seitan! It's my favorite meat substitue, but never can find it  :(
Where does everyone else buy theirs from? Anyone from New York? If so, please tell me where you get it! Thanks!!!
  :help!:
