Grilled portobello mushrooms have a mega advantage over baked portobellos mushroom recipes: NO clean up at the end!
To make these delicious marinated grilled mushrooms, you’ll need one main ingredient(obviously mushrooms) and a few simple ingredients for the marinade.
Portobello Mushrooms: Something I love most about portobello mushrooms is their “substantial” factor. I portobello mushrooms are particularly fulfilling, particularly when barbecued(grilled).
To Clean Portobello Mushrooms: Start by removing and discarding the stems. With a paper towel, gently rub off any dirt from the caps. With a small spoon, lightly scrape around the underside of the caps to remove the gills. The gills are edible but, well, weird and when you are sauteing with them, they’ll turn your recipe a dark, unappetizing hue. If the gills don’t bother you, you can leave them on.
Grilled Portobello Mushrooms Ingredients:
Balsamic Vinegar:Tang. Profundity of flavor. What a good taste.
Soy Sauce: That umami’ somethin’ (and an ideal touch for my Sautéed Mushrooms).
Flavors. To start with, garlic powder. Since 1) minced garlic can consume and 2) once in a while I’m excessively lethargic to mince garlic. Second, dark pepper. Adequately not to make these barbecued portobello mushrooms hot. Barely enough to awaken their flavor and make you can’t help thinking about why you can’t quit eating them. Third, cayenne:optional but recommended.
Rosemary:A generous spice that can bear upping to the mushrooms without overwhelming them. New thyme would be delectable as well.
This recipe also works well for a grilled portobello mushroom burger. Stack each grilled mushroom on a bun with a slice of cheese , a juicy slice of fresh summer tomato, and a small handful of lettuce,some eggless mayo and your burger is ready. No Mushrooms in hand? try this egg burger.

Grilled Portobello Mushrooms Tips:
Can I use regular vinegar?
I don’t recommend that. Distilled white vinegar is very acidic and won’t taste good in this recipe for grilled portobello mushrooms. It also won’t promote browning and caramelizing the way balsamic vinegar does.
After the initial 1-2 minutes on the barbecue, as the mushrooms relax, you can delicately press on them to level(like burgers). This will advance in any event, barbecuing. Yet, be delicate, or the mushrooms could self-destruct.
Use a very simple marinade when making this recipe – balsamic vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic. It’s very tasty and truly enhances the deep earthy flavor of the mushrooms.Good options include smoked paprika, ground cumin, dried oregano, and dried thyme.
You can serve these dishes as a side to the grilled mushrooms:
Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
In a shallow baking dish, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, soy sauce, rosemary, garlic powder, black pepper, and cayenne. Taste and adjust seasonings if you like. Add the mushrooms and turn to coat. Let sit for 5 minutes on one side, then flip and let sit 5 additional minutes. While the mushrooms marinate, prep the grill and anything you’d like to serve with them. You can let them sit for up to 30 minutes, so feel free to take your time—the longer they sit, the more intense the flavor will be.
Heat a grill or a large skillet over medium heat (about 350 to 400 degrees F). Brush the grill with oil to prevent sticking. Remove the mushrooms from the bowl, shaking off any excess marinade and reserving the marinade for basting. Cook on each side for 3-4 minutes, or until caramelized and deep golden brown. Brush the remaining marinade over the mushrooms several times as they cook.
To serve, top the portobello mushrooms with the avocado sauce or any topping you like.
