Seitan Jerky

This is a quick easy snack that keeps well in an air tight container. It is highly modifiable so if you like spicy go for it, I am going with more of a savory flavor with a little kick. The only rule is don't over cook the strips because they get to crunchy and hard and no one likes hard jerky!
• 12 ounces seitan sliced thinly but evenly
• 1/2 cup tamari
• 1/3 cup water
• 2 tbsp ketchup
• 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
• 1 tsp mustard powder
• 1 tsp garlic powder
• 1 tsp onion powder
• 1/2 tsp pepper
• 1/2 tsp honey
Slice seitan thin and even so there is less of a chance of burning parts of it, and set aside.
Then mix the wet ingredients together and whisk, add the dry ingredients, as seen below,
Then add the seitan, and mix well, I use my hands to get full coverage, but have a towel handy because the mix is a little sticky. Let the seitan marinade for at least 20 minutes

Cook at 200 for 20 to 25 minutes, you want the strips to be stiff but not crunchy!
