    Grilling Portabella Mushrooms

    Grilling Portabella Mushrooms



    By marinating a portobello mushroom, and then grilling it, you can create an flavorful alternative to go along side a steak, as a burger topper, or as delicious grilled portobello sandwich. This easy portobello recipe will please your vegatarian guests and meat eaters alike.

    Ingredients:
    4 large portobella mushrooms
    1 clove garlic (I used powdered, and tripled it)
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
    1/8 teaspoon onion powder
    1/8 teaspoon sugar
    1/8 teaspoon salt (I skipped)
    1/8 teaspoon pepper

    Prep the marinade
    First mix the vinegar, onion powder, sugar, salt and pepper. Mince the garlic clove, or use a garlic press and add the garlic to the marinade. Mix the marinade well.

    Ready the portobello
    Wash the portobello mushrooms in cold water. Gently rinse the gills on the underside of the mushroom. Cut off the end of the stem to remove any dried or hardened section. Let the mushrooms drain, gill side down for 1 minute. (LET THEM DRAIN!)

    Enter the Marinade
    Place the portobello mushrooms gill side up in a dish (a baking dish will do fine). Poor the marinade into the gills of the portobello until full and slightly overflowing. Add remainder of marinade to the baking dish. Refridgerate for 1 to 2 hours.

    (I used the oven at 425F)

    Prepare the grill
    Clean and oil the grill. Heat the grill to medium.

    Grill away
    Pour the marinade from the mushrooms into the baking dish. (Sprayed with Pam.)Rub or brush the olive oil onto the tops of the mushrooms (the round caps, not the gills). Refill the mushrooms with the marinade, in to the gill side. Add the portobellos to the grill over a direct heat. Cook for 4 minutes. Using tongs, carefully lift the mushrooms from the grill and pour out the marinade that remains in the mushroom into a clean dish. Return the mushrooms to the grill, gill side down. Baste the tops of the mushrooms with the marinade. (Using tongs, roll them in the bowl!) Cook for 4 minutes.



    Sandwich it
    If you are going to use the mushrooms for a portobello sandwich, turn the mushroom back to gill side up, and add cheese. A strong cheese such as a nice blue veined gorgonzola, or a strong swiss makes a good blend of flavors between the cheese and the balsamic. Reduce the heat and close the lid until the cheese is melted. Add to a grilled bun, with tomato, lettuce and a grilled onion. A touch of mayo or ranch dressing and you have a sandwich that has more flavor than some of the best burgers.

    Suggestion: Fill with feta and/or hummus... Mmmmm!Grilling Portabella Mushrooms-imageuploadedbytapatalk1370389542-440184-jpg

    My cousin who is a Chef had this to say:

    Take large portabella caps and season them as you like, I use kosher salt, fresh ground peppercorn medley, and garlic. Then spray a little olive oil on them and grill them until they are half cooked. Remove from grill and stuff them with grilled tomato slices and roasted yellow bell peppers, then top that with goat cheese (if you are opposed to goat cheese, whatever you like, parmesan is good also), and sprinkle a little garlic, basil, salt and pepper on top of that. Bake that off at 350 or 400 degrees for about ten minutes, more or less. When the cheese is all melty and caramelized round the edges, your good to go.

    Mmmmmmm I LOVE portobellos! Have made stuffed Italian sausage mushrooms with cheese. Used them as the crust of pizza on the grill and my fav is my mushroom burger. Too bad they r so dang expensive! They have them here at the 99 cent store often, I just forget Togo there and look.

    Thanks for the marinade recipe! Just got some portobello's from Trader Joe's the other day and am looking for ideas to cook them. Jenn had another good recipe for those "burgers" too.
