Vegan MOFO - Day 8: Tempeh BBQ ribs/steak
You will need:
BBQ sauce, enough to cover tempeh (I used premade, but you can make your own)
a container which fits the tempeh in it snugly. (Too big and you're wasting BBQ sauce)
Slice tempeh into slabs which are no more than 1cm fat. The thinner they are, the more marinated they will become. You can cut them into whatever shape you like after this, but I stuck with uniform pieces.
Place a small layer of BBQ sauce in the container, and then layer in your tempeh (BBQ sauce, tempeh, BBQ sauce, tempeh etc) until you are out of both.
Place in fridge to marinate overnight (the longer the better)
When ready to cook take out of container, and cook on hot grill until the bbq sauce starts to caramelize.
