Which is why it was important to me to find a way to veganize it. My first attempt was using seitan, but I didn't like it as much. Enter Gardein Homestyle Beefless Tips and I've got a winner!
My Mom's Irish Stew - Veganized!
One package Gardein Homestyle Beefless Tips
Potatoes (the amount is your choice) cut into bite sized cubes
One can tomato sauce
Place everything into a pressure cooker and stir well to coat, attach the lid and turn the temp to high. When the little top knob begins to rock, turn the temp down until the knob is rocking gently. Let cook about 20 minutes. Remove from heat and do a quick release of pressure. Make sure the steam is aimed AWAY from you!
I like to eat mine with a good loaf of bread and butter.
Ah, childhood memories!
