Pan-Fried Gluten Cuttlets

2 cups gluten flour
¼ cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup whole wheat flour
¼ cup tapioca starch
2 tbs yellow yeast flakes
1 ½ tbs chicken soup base
1 ½ tbs garlic powder
2 tbs soy sauce
1 ½ cups plus 2 tbs cold water
Whisk together first 7 ingredients. Mix soy sauce and water and add to gluten mixture. Bring together with a fork, then turn out onto a work surface. Knead several minutes to form a medium-firm dough. Form into a baguette-shaped roll, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze until firm enough to slice.
In a large pot, bring to a boil:
10 cups water
½ cup soy sauce
3 tbs chicken soup base
4 tbs yellow yeast flakes
1 onion, coarsely chopped
2 stalks celery, coarsely chopped
2 carrots, coarsely chopped
6 whole garlic cloves
1 tsp whole peppercorns
Slice gluten roll into 1 cm thick slices. Place in boiling liquid, reduce heat to medium-low and let simmer for 1 ½ hours, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking. Pace a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add enough canola oil for pan frying. Dredge each gluten slice in flour, beaten egg then seasoned bread crumbs. Pan fry until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
