Ingredients

  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps
  • 2 tbsp Avocado oil (Use more if needed)
  • 2 tsp Burger or steak seasoning (Use more if needed)

Instructions

  • Start by wiping off the outside of the mushroom with a damp rag or paper towel.
  • This will get rid of the dirt. DO NOT rinse the mushroom under water. Doing this will make it mushy and gross. If you’re new to the flavor of mushrooms, I suggest cutting off the stem and using a spoon to carve out the brown gill like stuff on the underside of the mushroom. The video below shows you how. This brown stuff on the underside of the mushroom tastes very earthy and strong and can be off putting if you’re new to eating mushrooms.
  • After cleaning off the mushrooms, you need to season and marinate them. Marinating mushrooms over night will yield the best results, but if you don’t have time, just marinate them for 20 minutes.
  • Use the same marinades you would for meat and steak. Most of them are vegan.
  • For this recipe I used avocado oil (you can use whatever oil you have on hand) and then a burger seasoning. Steak seasoning also tastes amazing on mushrooms. BBQ sauce is also great to marinate mushrooms in.
  • After seasoning and marinating, let your grill or pan heat up on medium low heat.
  • Place the mushroom cap right side up on the grill, so that the part that had the stem on it is facing down.
  • Grill for 10 minutes and the flip it upside down Let it cook on this side for another 5-10 minutes.
  • IT’S IMPORTANT TO FINISH THE MUSHROOM OFF, UPSIDE DOWN SO THAT ALL OF THE MUSHROOM JUICE COLLECTS IN THE UNDERSIDE OF THE CAP (as shown in the video below)
