Great Ways to Use Seitan

Make a Vegan Cheesesteak

Certain ingredients are best for particular types of mock meats. Jackfruit makes great vegan pulled pork, artichokes make good faux crab cakes, and seitan makes the best vegan Philly cheesesteaks. 

Make a Seitan Roast

Even if it's not a holiday, there's no reason you can't enjoy a seitan roast with the vegan stuffing of your choice. This works best with homemade seitan, but that's super easy.

Make Vegan Fried Chicken

Here's a recipe you don't necessarily need to make seitan from scratch for (though you totally can if you want to). For a healthier version, bake the "chicken" pieces instead of frying them.
