Matzo crusted seitan

DSC00905

My favorite setian recipe is Joanna’s from yellow rose recipes.  I just made the old chicken style cutlets, but when I went to link to the recipe I’ve discovered she’s got a new recipe and site as well.

I kind of multi-tasked here and boiled the potatoes and steamed the Brussels sprouts in the same big pot with the seitan.  Then pulled out a cutlet, breaded it in some matzo meal with a little seasoned salt, then sautéed  it in a little olive oil.  Then I took out about a 1/2 cup of broth from the seitan pot and added a cornstarch slurry to make a quick gravy.

Today’s cooking soundtrack is the Twilight movie soundtrack.  I think it’s cute that Robert Pattinson (Edward Cullen) sings on it.  There are bonus tracks from iTunes which include some nice classical music.  

There’s also Stephanie Meyer's personal Twilight soundtrack.  I’d say it’s the book soundtrack.  I mean you can’t go wrong with OMD.  Pretty in Pink was the soundtrack of my teen angst.
