  2. Now add your vegetable broth, your worcestershire sauce, and your liquid smoke. Bring the mixture to a boil and then turn down to a simmer for 5 minutes

  4. Take your broth off the heat and place your seitan or meat in it. Put mustard on your bun and now place the seitan/meat in, topped with the peppers, and covered in cheese. Place into the oven to broil for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Put broth into bowl, prepare plate with your choice of side and delicious sandwich. Enjoy!
