Make that Dough

     We are going to start by making a ball of dough. You’ll want a flour that says it has a high protein content. You could use an all purpose flour or a bread flower. In a bowl I add five cups of flour and two cups of slightly cold water. I knead and stretch it for about fifteen minutes, into a nice elastic dough ball. Once our ball is formed I add it to a bowl of cold water, cover it up, then let it rest for about an hour. When the hour is up, knead your ball under the water. After the water becomes very milky looking you can dump it or save it if you’d like. But we need to knead again in some fresh clean water. You will probably need to go through about two or three washes.

Steak Time

     Now your dough should start to look a little stringy and crazy. During my second wash, I take out a small portion of the dough, maybe twenty five percent of it, and put it off to the side for later. I add my smaller portion of dough to a blender along with a tablespoon of coconut oil, and a pinch of mushroom extract. Next I give it a good blend. Once that has blended then I add about a teaspoon of better than bouillon, two teaspoons coco powder, a tablespoon of a beet, two tablespoons of beetroot juice, a teaspoon of black strap molasses and the rest of our dough. Pulse that all together. 

Stretch it Out

     Time to take our steak mixture out of the blender. Now I stretch the mixture out by hand, and then fold it back up. I continue to do this process for about a minute or until you notice it is tightening up. I mold it into a sort of burrito shape, and in order to make it keep this shape, I put some parchment paper around it. Also I wrap it in tinfoil, we really want it to keep the nice shape. Next, put our little steak into a steamer for about forty five minutes.

Almost There

     Once your steak has steamed, take it out and unwrap it. It needs to sit for a while though, the longer it sits, the more meat-like it will become. Time to simmer it! In a large saute pan I add one teaspoon of bouillon, one cup of beet root juice, and about a tablespoon of olive oil. Now give that a good stir, and add in your steak. You want your steak to be about half submerged in liquid. Mine wasn’t quite half submerged so I added some water to get it there. I set it on a very low simmer for about an hour. When it is all done simmering in the broth we are going to allow it to sit for just a moment. Next it’s time to cut!

Final Touches

     I cut them into about inch thick slices, then allow them to rest for about an hour. When the hour is up I season them with some salt, and pepper. Now add some olive oil to a skillet, heat the steaks on high, and sear both sides. Once that is done you have yourself a steak! It looks and tastes incredibly steaky and meaty. So there you have it!
