On Sunday night I decided to recreate a couple of our favourite meals from a recent trip to the United States.

Image

BBQ seitan ribs, coleslaw and corn on the cob- just like we had at Karyn's Cooked in Chicago.

Image

And the famous Babycakes chocolate cupcakes!

More details on my blog.

Looks yummy! I've heard mixed things about the Babycakes icing, it looks good though!

Oh, very Americana. Ribs were one of the few things I knew I'd miss as a vegan. I can live without them just fine now, though.

Both look magical. Although I tend to be disturbed by fake meat that looks authentic, the ribs are calling to me.

That's a plate full of win, good job OP. Do you have a recipe for that? (N/M, I see it's on your blog, thanx!)

They're baked rather than boiled, which I way prefer- probably just because I haven't had great success with boiled seitan in the past. So I find it denser than other seitan I've made. The author of the original recipe said that she found it a bit spongier than other kinds, but that wasn't really the case for me. I guess it's meaty, but not so meaty that it's disconcerting.

It's seriously a foolproof recipe, though.

I just looked at these again, and I still cannot get over how "real" those ribs look!

Just plain old BBQ sauce, from the bottle. This was a weeknight meal, so I really couldn't be bothered making my own from scratch.

As an American I can tell you that these are totally droolworthy and look super authentic. I applaude your awesomeness.
