Easy "Beefy" Seitan

This is the easiest "beefy" substitute I have come across and it comes to you from The Vegetarian Carnivore, who sadly, has decided to bid her blog adieu. Homemade seitan (pronounced say-tan) is infinitely better tasting than anything  you can purchase ready made and is in fact, quite delicious. You can use this in any recipe that calls for pieces of beef. Thank you Vegetarian Carnivore and I hope you'll reconsider and keep blogging!

Easy Beefy Seitan Yumminess
2 c water
1/4 c nutritional yeast
2 T meatless beef broth powder*
1/2 c water
3/4 c vital wheat gluten
2 T meatless beef broth powder
2-3 T steak sauce
couple shakes liquid smoke

Combine the first three ingredients in a large sauce pan and bring to the barest simmer. Combine the rest of the ingredients and kneed for a couple minutes. Cut the dough into four pieces and add to liquid. Cover and cook on low heat, turning the seitan occasionally, until the liquid has been absorbed (about an hour).
* I did not have meatless beef broth powder so I crushed up a couple of "Better  Than Beef" boullion cubes.
