Anyone tried these cooking methods with seitan?

I sometimes find homemade seitan a little dry. Wonder if either methods would work with seitan??

i have had moderate success using cooked seitan - already baked or simmered - with oil and herbs and cooking sous vide at various temps... the best results were with lower temps 50° to 60° C. i imagine you could get similar results with a confit in a low temp oven.

i tried sous vide with raw dough once at 60° all day - it wasn't good. ended up baking it. i suspect a higher temp for longer time might work, but i haven't tried it.

one method i really like is to slowly roast slices of stone fruit in a pan with a little oil until they're fall-apart tender and then add them to a sauce going over sliced or shredded seitan. the fruit adds sweetness, moisture and has a texture that can be confused for fat.
