Vegan Steak Strips Recipe

Vegan Steak Strips RecipeLooking to make Vegan Steak Strips or vegan beef strips at home? My recipe for making vegan “steak” strips takes 15 mins using seasonings and soy curls!

These vegan steak strips are great in tacos, salads, stir-frys and more! Soy curls soak up the seasoning and create a meaty texture.

Soy curls are one of my favourite vegan meat replacements. They have a perfect texture, they are shelf-stable and easy to prepare. Just soak the dried soy curls in warm broth, marinade in seasoning, strain and brown in a pan. It’s that easy to have vegan beef strips ready for a dish. 



Vegan beef strips that can be prepared in 15 minutes pair well with any dish for a perfect weeknight meal or to enjoy your favourite traditionally non-vegan meal in a plant-based way.

Recipe type: Main
Cuisine: Vegan
Serves: 4 servings
  1. In a large bowl, dissolve one bouillon cube into the hot water.
  2. Once it has dissolved, add the soy curls to the bowl. Ensure they are covered with the bouillon, and let them sit for 10 minutes. If you don't have enough liquid repeat step one.
  3. While your soy curls are soaking, make your marinade.
  4. To a second large bowl, add garlic powder, soy sauce, vegan Worcestershire, olive oil, maple syrup, liquid smoke, and cumin, stir or whisk to combine.
  5. Remove the soy curls from the bowl and place it into a colander, squeezing to ensure they are no longer soaked.
  6. Measure out ½ a cup of your leftover bouillon broth and place it into the other large bowl with the marinade ¼ cup at a time, and stir to combine. Taste for the strength of choice.
  7. Add your soy curls and allow them to soak for 5-10 mins.
  8. After 5-10 mins, remove the soy curls from the bowl and place it into a bowl, again squeezing to remove any excess marinade.
  9. In a hot large pan or grill pan cook the soy curls until they are heated through and browned.
  10. Meanwhile, in a small bowl with a fork combine corn starch with 1 tbsp of water until it's dissolved.
  11. Mix in a ¼ cup of the marinade/broth.
  12. When soy curls are browned, add the sauce we just made into the pan and stir until soy curls are totally coated, and the sauce has thickened.

  • Unreal! I used these in tacos as well as stir frys! They’re soooo good!

  • Do you have a recipe for soy curls?

    • EdgyVeg says:

      soy curls are store-bought, I find them at my local health food store or even online

  • Soy curls are definitely one of my fav meat alternatives. This flavouring on them is so good. I meal prepped these for this week.

    • Kristin says:

      Can I cook ahead to bring to a party? If so, how best to re heat?

      • EdgyVeg says:

        Absolutely! You can reheat for 5-10mins in the oven at 350’C.

        • Woah! Are you sure about 350 C? I use Fahrenheit and that would be 662 F. I don’t think my oven even goes that high! Looks like a fantastic recipe though! I am going to make it this weekend.

  • Alocasia says:

    Can this be made oil-free or made with an oil substitute maybe aquafaba?
