  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (I use low-sodium soy sauce)
  • 1 tablespoon dark soy sauce (See Note below)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 8 ounces of beef-flavored seitan
  • 1/4 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 small carrot, thinly sliced 
  • 2 to 3 green onion, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • Dash of black pepper
  • Sesame seeds (for garnish)
  • Rice, lettuce, kimchi, Korean soybean paste soup (for serving)


  1. In a small bowl, mix together soy sauce, dark soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil, and minced garlic until sugar dissolves. 
  2. On a pan, heat the oil and add the beef flavored seitan to the pan. Cook for a couple of minutes until they are heated through. 
  3. Add the onion and carrot slices to the seitan. Cook until onions are no longer raw, about 2 minutes. 
  4. Pour the prepared sauce on top and mix until everything is well coated with the sauce. 
  5. Add the green onion and cook for an additional minute or two. 
  6.  Spring with some sesame seeds and serve. 


  • If you don't have dark soy sauce, you can substitute it with regular soy sauce. However, the color of the seitan bulgogi will not be as dark as mine in the photos.
