Tonight my hubby was telling how much he misses my beef stroganoff. This is the recipe I used to use. I think I tried to make it once before and you could taste the wheaty taste in the store bought seitan beef substitute. This is the recipe I have used:

If you can suggest reliable tasty substitutes for non vegan ingredients I'd appreciate it. FYI marinated tofu is not going to work for him the beef sub nor would tempeh. He will eat them but it's clear he wants something like he remembers eating in the past. Thanks!

I think the more you try and find something that replicates the taste and texture of beef, the more you are going to be disappointed, because nothing vegan is going to taste as much like beef as beef, especially not to someone still eating beef.

I'd say get delicious portabellos, make your stroganoff (use the Vegan with a Vengeance recipe), and don't try and sell your husband on its beefy flavor. Just enjoy it for what it is.

I love gardein beefless tips in Isa's mushroom stroganoff. Not sure if they are a perfect substitute, but they are mighty tasty.

yes! i love regular seitan, but the beefless tips make the best stroganoff i've had, vegan or pregan.

The strips from Trader Joe's are pretty beefy!
