Spicy Seitan Stir-Fryjrubino

Seitan is a meat substitute made from wheat gluten. If you can't find Asian-marinated seitan, make your own by marinating plain seitan in teriyaki sauce overnight. Look for black bean-garlic sauce in the Asian food aisle; it's wonderful added to any stir-fry or soup. For less spice, use fewer serrano chiles.
- Combine black bean-garlic sauce and vinegar in a small bowl. Set aside.
- Heat a wide skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil, then chiles, garlic, and ginger. Stir and cook 30 seconds. Add seitan and green beans. Stir-fry 1 minute.
- Add 3 tablespoons water to pan, then cover and steam 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beans are barely tender. Add additional tablespoons of water as necessary to prevent food from scorching.
- Add red pepper and another tablespoon water, if needed. Cover and cook until beans are crisp-tender, 1-2 minutes. Stir in reserved black bean-sauce mixture. Cook and stir until all excess moisture has evaporated, about 1 minute. Serve immediately.
