How can I save my spongy seitan?

I made some seitan the other day and it turned out with a very spongy, slightly rubbery texture instead of the meaty texture that I am used to when I have it at restaurants. I think I know what I did during cooking that caused this to happen (but I'm not sure, so if you have any tips...), and so I can probably avoid it in the future.
That doesn't help me right now, though. Right now I have a lot of spongy seitan in the freezer waiting for future use. I don't want to throw it all out. What types of recipes can I use it in that will either benefit from the spongy texture or, better yet, "mask" the texture?
