– ½ medium yellow onion chopped – 1 clove garlic minced – 1 package tempeh 8oz, sliced – ¼ cup BBQ Sauce or more depending on preference – 2 tbsp olive oil – Salt & pepper to taste

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Once oil is heated, add in the onions and garlic and let them cook until they become tender and translucent, about 1 minute.

While the onions and garlic are cooking, slice the tempeh in thin strips about, ¼-inch thick.

Place the tempeh in the oil and cook on both sides until it is a crispy brown.

Pour in your favorite BBQ sauce, salt, and pepper and mix with a spatula, coding all the tempeh. Turn the heat down to medium-low and let cook for about 10 minutes. Be sure to stir.
