This sandwich turned out okay, but one of Toby’s comments was that the texture of tempeh doesn’t really work in this sandwich. Hmm. It’s a very easy recipe to make, but yeah, I’ve had better BBQ sandwiches.
BBQ Tempeh Sandwiches
makes 4 sandwiches
time needed: 1 hour, 5 min.
8 oz. tempeh, cut into thin strips
3/4 c. barbecue sauce
1 tbsp. olive oil
1 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
pinch of sugar
salt + pepper to taste
1 c. shredded cabbage or coleslaw mix
olive oil mister or cooking spray
4 hamburger rolls
Spread 1/4 cup of barbecue sauce on the bottom of a small baking dish. Add tempeh and top with remaining barbecue sauce. Gently toss to coat. Let marinate for an hour, stirring after 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, whisk together olive oil, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a small bowl. Stir in cabbage and set aside.
Spray a medium skillet with oil or cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add tempeh and sauce; cook until heated, about 5 minutes. Serve on rolls with slaw and additional barbecue sauce (if desired).
