Skillet or Crock-pot Seitan au Vin

What follows is my very own recipe. This was originally a recipe I got from a regional cookbook called Southern Sideboards, which is put out by a Junior League group in Mississippi, I think. It was a decidedly non-vegan, non-healthful recipe, which I first made low fat and have now evolved again.
