What You’ll Require?

For The Tofu Steak

  • Tofu: Condensed soy is used to make tofu. It is a well-known, high-protein vegan ingredient. Typically, tofu does not have a particularly prominent flavor. The other tastes or marinade are thus nicely absorbed. You can purchase readymade tofu at any grocery shop. It has a variety of textures, including firm, crumbly, and soft. We need particularly firm tofu that can keep its shape because we’re baking this tofu. We won’t want water in it, either. Therefore, be sure to press, drain, and then cut the tofu into cubes.
  • Avocado oil: I used avocado oil. Why? Because it is healthy. However, you can use your favorite or available one.
  • Bragg’s liquid amino: Made from soya beans, this sauce will fulfill the need for protein. It is a crucial ingredient in vegan recipes, and I simply love it. It is also gluten-free, so no worries there. You can also substitute it with coconut aminos, or Tamari sauce.
  • Italian seasoning: Italian seasoning is a dried herb blend that gives the tofu a taste as well as an aroma.
  • Garlic powder: Garlic powder intensifies the flavor of the tofu. It has a strong, savory flavor that is detectable.

For The Sauce

  • Avocado oil: You’ll also require some more oil for making sauce. Again, I’m using avocado oil here, however, you can use any.
  • Onion: Feel free to substitute white, yellow, and red onions for the sauce, though I love yellow onions.
  • Bell peppers: Bell pepper make the dish vibrant. It adds beautiful colors so, if you want your dish to be visually appealing, use red, yellow, and green peppers.
  • Garlic and ginger: Fresh are preferable because, in my opinion, it has a very different flavor from the dried powdered thing. But it’s okay if all you have are the dried spices.
  • Carrot: Carrot is a tasty addition to this steak. It is not only delicious but nutritious as well.
  • Vegetable Broth: Use an organic vegetable broth that’s also gluten-free. I love Swanson Organic Vegetable Broth. You can make your own with vegetable peelings. If you are not vegan, you can use beef or chicken broth for a richer and deeper flavor.
  • Cornstarch: Depending on the desired consistency of the sauce, you can increase or decrease the amount of cornstarch.
  • Bragg’s Liquid aminos: It adds an umami flavor to the sauce.
  • Green onion: You get a grassy yet savory flavor by adding the green onion. If you don’t have green onions, you can use scallions as well.
  • Scotch Bonnet Pepper: The Scotch bonnet is a significant component in some of the greatest tropical hot sauces in the world due to its high amount of sweetness.

How To Make Vegan Peppered Steak?

  1. Cut tofu into cubes, place into a bowl and toss with Bragg’s liquid aminos, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder.
  2. To cook the tofu, bake on parchment lined baking sheet in a preheated oven at 400 degrees F. for 20-25 minutes or cook in an air fryer, line the basket with parchment paper, spread seasoned tofu in a single layer on the basket, and bake for 12-15 minutes at 375 degrees F. turning halfway. Set aside.
  3. Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high. Add onion and cook until soft, about 3 minutes.
  4. Stir in bell pepper, garlic, ginger, carrot, and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  5. Mix vegetable broth with cornstarch and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos. Add to the vegetables stirring until the sauce is thick.
  6. Stir in the prepared tofu and stir to coat with the vegetables and sauce.
  7. Sprinkle with green onions.

Serving Suggestions

Serve over rice or quinoa. It pairs perfectly with a nice side of mashed potatoes or some salad.

Variations

  • If you like you can use soy curls instead of tofu for making vegan peppered steak. For this soak the soy curls in warm water for 10 minutes, then drain the water and add the seasonings of steak. Next, bake soy curls until brown. Then proceed with the recipe as directed.
  • Use whichever vegetables you like in this simple recipe, and you may change the sauce as well.

Recipe Notes

  • To save time start preparing the rice when tofu cubes are baking if you’re going to serve it with rice.
  • If you have any leftover vegan peppered steak, store it separately from the rice/quinoa in the refrigerator for up to 3–4 days or freeze it for up to 3 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is Peppered Steak Good For You?

Yes! This dish is prepared with healthy ingredients like tofu and veggies (such as pepper, onion, and carrots…).

Tofu is a rare vegan option that is a good source of protein that contains all essential amino acids, fats, carbohydrates, and numerous vitamins and minerals.

Isoflavones, which are found in all soy products, including tofu, are thought to be the primary contributor to the health benefits of tofu. Isoflavones can act as both estrogen agonists and estrogen antagonists. These may aid in the prevention of certain cancers, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis. 

Most veggies include important minerals, vitamins, and other nutrients like fiber and antioxidants. They are low in calories and fat.  People who consume at least five daily servings of vegetables had the lowest risk of various diseases, including heart disease and cancer.
