To make this plant-based roast beef all you need are some time and the following ingredients:
- vital wheat gluten
- garlic powder
- onion powder
- smoked paprika
- maple syrup (or agave syrup)
- tahini (or peanut butter/olive oil)
- white wine
- vegetable broth
- onion (optional)
- carrot (optional)
- garlic cloves (optional)
- vegetable oil for frying
Vital wheat gluten
One of the main ingredients to make this roast is vital wheat gluten.
As I already explained in this recipe, vital wheat gluten is a powder made of gluten and very little starch.
To make it, wheat flour is mixed with water in order to create a dough. The hydration of flour activates the gluten protein. The dough is then washed to remove everything but gluten which is then dried and ground back into a powder. This powder is what we call vital wheat gluten.
Vital wheat gluten is used in the plant based cuisine to make seitan, a meat substitute. That's because gluten has an elastic consistency similar to the one of meat.
Can I substitute vital wheat gluten?
There is no other ingredient that has the same properties and characteristics that vital wheat gluten has. Therefore it's not possible to substitute it in this recipe.
Is vital wheat gluten healthy?
As I explained in this recipe vital wheat gluten is nutritious and healthy (unless you are gluten intolerant).
Kitchen tools needed
The recipe is super simple!
To make it, however, you will need a food processor because the ingredients with which this roast beef is formed must be chopped very finely.
In this way we will be able to form a compact and delicious roast!
Step 1: Form the roast
To make this vegan roast beef, we first form a dough that will be the base for our roast.
To make the dough, we add vital wheat gluten, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt and pepper in a food processor and mix.
In a blender we puree the beet, 1 tablespoon of mustard and tahini until we get a lump-free mixture. Add a splash of water if needed.
We add the wet mixture to the dry mixture in the food processor and pulse for a few seconds until a dough that sticks together is formed.
Step 2: Knead the dough
We take the dough from the food processor and knead it for 3-4 minutes.
After that we shape it into a roast.
Remember: The more we knead the dough, the firmer to the bite our roast beef will be once cooked.
Step 3: Cook the roast beef
We heat abundant oil in a large pan, we brush the roast with mustard and when the oil is hot, we roast it for a few minutes on all sides.
Next, we add in white wine, broth and the vegetables and simmer the roast beef for 90 minutes on low heat with the lid of the pan half closed, turning it 2-3 times. Add a little broth from time to time if needed.
Once cooked, we roast it again on all sides to get a slightly crispy crust on the outside. Et voilà! Our roast beef is ready to serve!
How to serve
We can serve this dish with baked potatoes, sautéed vegetables, mashed potatoes or even a risotto Milanese.
Also, I highly recommend blending the vegetables and cooking juices to create an absolutely delicious sauce, perfect to serve with our vegan seitan roast beef.
How to store the vegan roast beef
You can store it in the fridge or freezer:
- Fridge: Place in an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 3-4 days. Reheat in the oven for 20 minutes at 180 °C (340 °F) before serving.
- Freezer: Place in an airtight container or into a freezer bag and store for up to 1 month. Allow to thaw overnight in the fridge before reheating. Reheat in the oven for 20 minutes at 180 °C (340 °F) before serving.

Oh my…this is absolutely excellent. I can’t even believe I made this masterpiece. Thank you, thank you, thank you for the fantastic recipe.
Barney Jones says
Loved this recipe! I made it (without mustard, I can't stand the taste in anything) on Saturday, then left it to rest in the fridge overnight, to have for a Sunday roast dinner. I reheated it at 160 degrees in the air-fryer for about 15 minutes. It didn't dry out too much at all, and tasted amazing. I must admit that over Saturday and Sunday, I was slicing off thin pieces to eat! Will definitely may again. Oh and after blending the braising liquid and veg, then heating it up with cornflour slurry, it made a delicious, rich and flavoursome gravy. For the liquid, I used the Oxo meat-free beef flavour stock cubes and omitted the wine, just added more stock, then topped up with water as needed.
Can I cook/steam this recipe in my instant pot?
Hi there, I never tried so I can't really tell. X Carlo
Loved it, my 6 year old asks for it every time with his roast dinner now.
Forgot to rate this brilliant recipe! Absolutely 5* rating. Please make sure you read all the tips, they’re very useful.
My belly is now bulging after making a dinner with this recipe for New Years Eve. I must admit mine didn’t look as good as yours, but it was definitely tasty. Lovely texture - which I know is a controversial thing to say but I do miss a meaty texture….now I’ve said it, I’m grossed out lol! Your recipes are a delight and this one was not as complicated as I’d expect it to be. Thank you.
Hi there! I should have done what you said! That is, read the complete blog before I started. I had difficulty finding the vital wheat gluten in my area (MA-USA) and store personnel were not very helpful. I ended up with prepared seitan and not VWG. Starting with a very wet spongy product only started my debacle. I'll spare you any more details but needless to say- I ended up with something very different. I am rather new to vegan cooking so suffice to say, it was all on me! I hope to try this again with the proper ingredients.
If you didn't use the proper ingredients, you shouldn't give the recipe a poor rating. It really affects the overall rating if there are not many ratings, and hurts the content creator.
JEAN NELSON says
I posted a comment a couple of weeks ago but it didn't go through. Thank you for adding the grams and ounces for the beetroot. I overcooked mine because I made half a recipe and cooked the full time which ended up pretty tough. One
thing I asked in my original review was for what the temperature should be when the roast is done. That would have helped me avoid the over cooking.
Your roast looks so luscious and amazing and I hope to try it again with better
results. Thank you.
Hi Jean, I suggest you follow the cooking time given in the recipe for best results. I'll check the temperature next time I make it. X, Carlo
Can you make without the beetroot?
Hi Kevin, You can but the color will be different. I'd also add a dash of water if you skip the beetroot. X Carlo
Janne P Swearengen says
Carlo, what kind of mustard should be used? Dry, Yellow, Dijon??
Hi Janne, I used yellow mustard. Best, Carlo
Janne P Swearengen says
I made this two days ago and I must say it is a righteous roast. A couple of things to note. I always use both grams and oz to make sure the best portion of the ingredient is used. I had a fairly significant difference in the grams and ounces of the VWG (I use Anthony's) and the beet root, again with a fairly significant difference in both the VWG and the beet root in grams/ounces. I opted for the ounces on both...next time, I will opt for the grams and see what, if any difference, it makes. I also use a tahini that's been around for a while and wasn't as malleable as 'fresh'. The fact that I could actually taste the beet in the finished product leads me to think it was too intense, so the grams will be used the next time. When I make it again, I will use the grams of beets rather than ounces.
I used dijon mustard, but will opt for the yellow mustard nest time as well.
If I wish to use my IP, what settings and time should be used. I let the cooked roast rest overnight in the fridge and the consistency was excellent. Very meaty. For me, it is imperative to read the directions a couple of times ahead AND get your 'mise en place' prior to going forward.
On another note, can VWG be substituted for the washed flour in some of your other recipes?
Hi Janne, I'm so happy you like the roast! Regarding the measurements: grams is way more accurate than oz, so I'd definitely stick to grams if you can. Also, I don't recommend using the flour washing method for this one because it's totally gonna change the texture of the roast. Hugs, Carlo
Hi, I would love to make this for our Christmas dinner, but I cannot stand the taste of beets. Is there a way to replace the beet?
Hi Mona, the roast won't taste at all like beet so I'd suggest you use it. Otherwise leave it out and add more water. Best, Carlo
Great, easy recipe. I used a scoop of beetroot powder, and it did impart a pretty color. I also used red wine because I did not have any white, it's good, I think the white might have been better. I nibbled on it and now it is resting in the fridge, Tomorrow, i endeavor to chunk it and put it in a classic stew for fun. Wish me luck!
Spencer Gooch says
Top notch recipe! I made this for a Friendsgiving because I wanted to bring something that would really impress! Mission accomplished! This recipe is easy to make, and it looks awesome when it’s done.
1. No special expertise or equipment needed beyond a food processor.
2. Ready to serve when you make it. But. At the end of the recipe it says you can refrigerator overnight to get a meatier texture. I ended up refrigerating it for 2 nights and then heating up in the air-fryer the next day. The texture was meaty, but not dense which is a real accomplishment.
3. Like I said, looks awesome.
For Next Time:
1. I am going to double the mustard in the recipe to really add a bit more impact.
2. As the roast is frying, I am going to put seasoning on each side so that it gets fried into the crust.
This recipe rules.
I have this cooking in the oven right now and it smells amazing. I did have an issue where the dough was so sticky and wet that I really couldn't knead it. Is this normal? How dry should the dough be? I added more vital wheat gluten to compensate, but am afraid that it may have altered the texture. I doubled checked my measurements and everything was spot on, so not sure what caused this issue.
Any help is appreciated and thanks so much for the recipe! Looking forward to tasting tomorrow for Thanksgiving. 🙂
Dear Sarah, you definitely did the right thing. the dough should not be sticky once you start kneading. To fix a wet dough you can simply add more vital wheat gluten. Let me know how it turned out! Best, Carlo
As beet roots vary so much in size, it would be quite helpful to add the weight for that ingredient. Thanks for sharing your fabulous recipes!
I too would like to know what a small beetroot means. In an earlier post you answered: carlocao says
August 07, 2021 at 9:43 pm
Hi Meike, Mine was an estimation 🙂 I'd say a beet with the weight between 250-350 grams should do the job. The beet is added for the color, so the exact amount is not really too important. I hope this helps 🙂
That is between 2 and 2-1/2 cups of beetroot which is way more than a small beetroot. In another post you suggested that one person who was having trouble might have been caused by too much beetroot.
Please give us the actual amount of beetroot you used.
This looks fantastic, thanks for the recipe!
Do you think I could steam it in the instant pot instead of simmering?
Hi Robbie, I've personally never tried but I don't see why it wouldn't work. It's definitely worth a try. Please let me know how it turns out so that I can update the recipe with this option 🙂
Hi Carlocao, I’m so sorry to reply to another persons comment, however I did not see a way to add a comment. Is there a replacement for the white wine for people who do not consume alcohol? My apologies for the awkward way of asking again!
Hi Yash, you can skip it and add more broth. X Carlo
Tina McMayo says
My husband found the recipe and asked me to make it. I made it today. It was Amazing! Definitely a keeper. Thank you so much.
hello!,I like your writing very much! share we keep up a correspondence more approximately your post on AOL? I require an expert in this space to unravel my problem. Maybe that is you! Taking a look ahead to look you.
Hi. I’m trying this in a couple of days, my vegan nephew also has but allergies so using oil instead of peanut butter. I also have elder Mother who can’t eat Garlic, can you please suggest an alternative? I was thinking mushroom paste???? But not sure?!?!
Hi Suzi, oil instaed of butter will work perfectly, I do it as well when I run out of it. You can simply skip the garlic if you don't want it. X Carlo
I've tried making seitan-based meats with wheat gluten before but have never gotten the texture right until now! This recipe was easy to follow and it came out perfectly! I did make a small mistake and added all the mustard to the dough instead of reserving some for the coating. I added a bit more wheat gluten to compensate for the extra moisture. With all that mustard in it, it tasted more like corned beef and was still delicious. I used red wine instead of white as I preferred that with "beefy" flavours. It makes quite a bit (I'm the only vegetarian in my household) so I appreciated the tips for freezing. Thank you for such a great recipe!
Thank you so much for this recipe, wonderful texture and flavour, hands down best seitan I have ever had. I made gravy with the left over broth and vegetables like you suggested, which saved a lot of time and was very tasty. I think I will now be making this recipe every holiday 😉
This looks so good! I plan to try it very soon, but I have a question about the beet root. If I have beetroot powder, can I use that instead will it affect the recipe? If I can substitute, would I use the same amount in the recipe or do I need to change the amount? Thanks so much for your advice and for the recipe!
Beetroot powder is a totally different ingredient so yes it will change the recipe. I recommend to use a raw beetroot 🙂 X Carlo
Excellent post. I was checking constantly this blog and I am impressed! Very useful info particularly the closing section 🙂 I maintain such info much. I used to be seeking this certain info for a long time. Thanks and good luck.
this recipe turned out great!! it was much simpler than expected, even with the long cook time because i could just go do something else. tasty, moist, perfect texture!!
What kind of prepared mustard did you use? They vary so much.
English mustard is super crazy hot and powerful like Chinese mustard.
Dijon mustard is medium hot.
Yellow mustard is milder.
Grainy mustard is milder.
If not using wine for the braising liquid would you add a bit of vinegar and more broth?
Hi Julie, I used a medium strong one 🙂 Best, Carlo
Deliciously juicy and great texture. Thank you very much for the recipe, Carlo.
We had trouble forming the dough into the nice shape of a loaf -- turned out pretty ugly, tasty though it was. Any tips on making it cooperate?
Fun fact: if you use canned pickled beets because you are too impatient to wait for your husband to get home from the store the sweetness makes it smell and taste like the most Midwestern meatloaf you ever made 😂 going to try again with fresh beets, but still absolutely not disappointed. Great recipe!
Dear Alisha, I feel you haha! The beetroot should really be raw for the roast to get the perfect "bloody" look. Let me know how it turns out next time 🙂 best, Carlo
Made twice over the Christmas period, never made seitan before so wasn’t sure how I’d fare but this recipe is both simple and extremely tasty, you just need some time. First round I made the day before and reheated, second time I made day of and ate immediately, both really good and my meat eating friends/family all approved too (including my Dad whose default position is to disapprove of anything vegan so it really is that good!!) Absolutely recommend anyone who is considering this recipe to give it a whirl.
Thank you very much Carlo for posting.
Hi Michaela, thank you so much for your feedback, I'm so happy you liked it! Hugs, Carlo
I am so glad I found this recipe. I have tried loads of recipes for seitan.
The difference with this one was the texture. It’s so like meat but not chewy. This is going to be the only recipe I use now. I didn’t have any beetroot but thought I would try. yummy. I’m still going to try with the beetroot too. Thank you
Dear Mary, I'm so happy you liked my recipe! Thank you for your lovely feedback! Hugs, Carlo
This is bubbling away now: can't wait to taste it tomorrow! When resting it in the fridge overnight, do you recommend cutting into slices before it goes into the fridge or after it's reheated the next day? Thanks for the great recipe! (I just tasted the broth and it's so so good- I used some vegan beef stock as well as veggie stock and it's fabulous).
Dear Kitt, I hope you liked the roast! I would not slice it before reheating it or it might not be as juicy. I hope this helps, Carlo
Making this right now for tomorrow's Christmas dinner. I am having some problems. When roasting the dough on all sides, it brakes when I flip it. Any tips? And I just added the broth, oh boy. It almost completely disolved in the broth. What did I do wrong?
Hi Michelle, it sounds like you haven‘t kneaded the dough properly. You have to kneat it until the dough gets firm. The more you knead it the stronger the gluten network of your roast will get. It should definitely not dissolve in the broth. I hope this helps. best, Carlo
I made this tonight and although the beetroot made it red prior to cooking it still came out yellow/orange. It also tasted like boiled bread. I added extra broth, and vegetables. I kneaded for 4 mins. Cooked in a Dutch oven on the stove top. Any recommendations for what I did wrong?
Hi Danyel, from what you describe I'd say that you cooked your roast either in too much broth, at a too high temperature or too long and that's why the roast is spongy (or as you described it "tasted like boiled bread"). That's also probably why the color of the beetroot has completely disappeared (the longer you cook the roast the less the roast will be red). Another thing that comes to my mind is that you might have used a too large beetroot which ended up adding too much misture to your roast. The dough has to be compact and at the end of the cooking process the texture should become firm. I hope this helps, best Carlo
Is it possible to make this with seitan instead of the wheat gluten?
Hi, to make seitan you need to use vital wheat gluten. Otherwise it‘s not seitan 🙂 best, Carlo
I’m going to make this for Christmas!! It looks incredible! Do you think this would make for a good beef Wellington? I’ve tried many vegan beef Wellington recipes and they all have a “burger” like texture which I’m not loving so this looks like it may be what I’ve looking for! Thank you for sharing this masterpiece!
Hi CJ, I actually had in mind to make a Wellington out of this recipe (it's going to be one of the first recipes I'm gonna post next year). Unfortunately I haven't had enough time for this. That said, I'd definitely bake the roast for about 25 minutes before making the wellington so that when the pastry is ready the inner part of the roast is fully baked as well. I hope this helps, let me know how it turns out. Best, Carlo
How long and at what temperature do you recommend reheating it after a night in the fridge? 🙂
Hi Sarah, it really depends on how much roast is left but I usually reheat it at 180 °C (360 °F) for about 20 minutes. I hope this helps, Carlo
Hello, thank you for posting this recipe. I am going to use it as a basis for my Christmas roast. I've done various nut loaves etc over the years but they are expensive and complicated. I've never tried doing a roast on a seitan basis, although I have made seitan Hamburgers etc. I will add sage because sage is the taste of Christmas for me.
Hi, what would you recommend substituting the what gluten for ti make if gluten-free?
Hi Pamela, unfortunately you cannot skip the vital wheat gluten powder as the roast's texture depends on it. Best, Carlo
Frances De Lancey says
Can I make this in the oven? Or mix it with beyond beef?
Hi dear, you could totally cook it in the oven. I'd use a cast iron pan with the lid on. Preheat the oven to 180 °C (360 °F) and bake it for approximately 90 minutes. Regarding beyond beef: I've never tried so I cannot really help you with this 🙁
hi there! I'm just wondering where the maple syrup goes?
Hi Leah, I just updated the recipe to make it clear. Maple syrup goes into the dough. I hope this helps. XX, Carlo
I wanted to make myself a substitute for prime rib for a dinner party. This was a great substitute! I was afraid it would be bouncy but it wasn't. The others eating beef were intrigued. I was happy eating my faux meat. One thing with the recipe's instructions that could be clarified is where the maple syrup goes. Thanks for this tasty sub!
Must the beet be boiled (cooked) before adding to food processor?
Hi Jessica, no it doesn't 🙂
Meike Hoffmanns says
Hi Carlo, I‘m making your Roastbeef. In the comments you wrote it‘s 400g are beet. That is is a beet like a little melon. I thought a little melon is as big as a fist or smaller? I‘m not quite sure how to go on? Thank you and I love your Rezepte.
Hi Meike, Mine was an estimation 🙂 I'd say a beet with the weight between 250-350 grams should do the job. The beet is added for the color, so the exact amount is not really too important. I hope this helps 🙂
Chevy Abecassis says
Loved it! I didn’t have a non stick pan so I didn’t “brown it”, it tasted like a slow cooked roast beef. Very tender and really reminds me of the real thing. 9/10 🙂
Chevy, thank you so much for your review! I'm so glad you loved it!
Maxine S says
I would make it again. It is meaty and tasty. Even better when bbqued.
Hi Maxime, thank you so much for your feedback! I'm so happy you liked it!
Can't wait to try this! What kind of mustard do you recommend using?
Hi Eric, I like to use a spicy/strong one but ny mustard will do the work. I hope this helps!
Thanks for the quick reply! I’m making this for dinner tonight 😁
Please let me know how it turns out 🙂 I hope you'll love it!
I am looking forward to trying this recipe. Is there a reason for white wine? Can red be used as well? What is the approximate diameter of the beet? Thank you.
Hi Barb, Whine gives a nice taste to the sauce. You can use 400 g (14 oz) of raw beet. I don't know the exact diameter of the beet, but I hope this helps you.
It came out pretty good. Blending the braising vegetables to make a sauce was brilliant.
Hi Barb, I'm so glad you liked it! Thank you for your feedback!
Can I use red wine instead of white? Asking because that is what we have right now.
Can you suggest a ddiameter for the beet? I plan to try this, this week. Thanks.
Hi dear, so you can definitely swap white whine with red wine, it will just change the color and flavor of the sauce. Regarding the beetroot, I can't tell you the diameter but you'll be fine with 2 cups of raw beetroot. I hope this helps!
Excellent and easy.
One tip: draw line to separate dry, wet and marinade ingredients.
I mistakenly started adding marinade wine to beets. No big deal. Was able to take most out.it did give a more wine flavor to the meat!
Sounds delicious! Is the beet raw or cooked? Also, as far as the simmering step, it seems there is not enough liquid to do a true simmer with the roast covered in liquid. Wondering if this is more like a braise, with the roast only partially covered with liquid. Can you please clarify? Thx
Hi Myrna! The beetroot should be raw in order to get a nice color of the roast beef. Regarding the broth, the roast should only be partially covered with broth. I hope this helps! Let me know how it turns out!
Can I use beer root powder?
Hi Christine, you can definitely try but I'm unsure about the color your vegan roast will have at the end. Fresh beetroot is the best option (colorwise). I hope this helps.
heyy this roast looks delicious but is there any alternative to wheat gluten? (I don't know where to find this in France hahah) thank you
Bonjour Mathieu, vous pouvez facilement trouver du gluten de blé en magasin bio, marque Celnat ou Moulin des Moines par exemple ! 🙂
Dear Mathieu, the wheat gluten is essential for this recipe as it's what gives a "meaty" texture to the roast. I'm sure you can find it online even in France. I hope this helps you. Hugs, Carlo
David Morehead says
This recipe looks great. I can't wait to try it when I am back home on vacation. (I work on a cruise ship so no cooking until I get home)
Thank you for your website and for answering all the questions here on your website. You are very patient and helpful.
A what stage do you let it rest in the fridge ?
Carlo Cao says
After you’ve cooked it. You can let it rest overnight and reheat it the day after.
