Korean Seitan Bulgogi Sandwich with Kimchi and Sweet Slaw!!!

Oh my goodness!  This is just off the chain crazy good!  I don't know what inspired me to put all these flavors together today, but man oh man....was it a good idea!  You get the savory from the BBQ seitan bulgogi, the spicy from the kimchi and the tart sweetness from the slaw.  I mean, lets be honest, what else could you ask for?

Gluten Free?  No worries, replace the seitan with meaty portobella strips!  Either way this sandwich is going to be lip smacking good!  I made my own bbq sauce for this recipe that I took from

Never had kimchi or Korean food?  Don't be scared or shy!! Be adventurous!  It is 100% sooooo delicious!

Grilled Seitan Bulgogi Sandwich with Kimchi and Sweet Slaw!

 Tip to vegans and vegetarians:  kimchi usually contains fish sauce.  Though, you can find some that are 100% plant based.  I get mine at Trader Joe's.

And, if you are not familiar with kimchi, it is a korean fermented vegetable dish with a variety of spices.  It may not have the best odor, but is great, especially on this sandwich.

bbq sauce:
1 tbsp evoo or coconut oil
1 garlic clove chopped
1/2 c chopped yellow onion
2 c ketchup
2 rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp sriracha (or hot sauce)
3 tbsp raw agave nectar
2 tbsp brown sugar
s + p

cucumber sliced
red cabbage
rice wine vinegar
agave nector

Heat grill.  blend all ingredients for the bbq sauce together and marinate the seitan strips in it.   Place the seitan on foil and cook for 10 minutes.  In the meantime, make your sweet slaw by combining the cucumbers, red cabbage, agave nectar and white wine vinegar.  On a sliced bun, load in the seitan, kimchi and top with the slaw.

Now that's a burst of flavors in your mouth!
