This recipe is great for the outdoor or indoor grill OR oven.  I love it served in a sandwich with coleslaw on a whole wheat bun. 


8 oz. tempeh
1 large onion, I used red, thinly sliced
1 1/2 cup bottled barbecue sauce


Cut tempeh into 1 inch chunks.  Steam over boiling water for 15 minutes.
Place tempeh and sliced onion in a deep glass or ceramic dish and pour barbecue sauce over all.

Toss gently, cover and marinate in refrigerator for at least 1 hr.
Cook on outdoor or indoor grill until browned and heated through.

the tempeh will have a nice sear on it

Baste frequently with barbecue sauce.
Alternatively, bake in a covered casserole dish in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
sauce thickens, tempeh sears and onions caramelize

serve as a protein with sides OR a quick sandwich; great with coleslaw
