Print this Recipe    Portabella Mushroom "Burgers"

Serves 2

1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup red wine vinegar
2 T Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 tsp. liquid smoke
3 minced garlic cloves
1/4 tsp. black pepper
hot sauce to taste
2 large portabella mushroom caps
2 large hamburger buns
2 slices cheese

green chilis

Combine all marinade ingredients together. Place each mushroom in
a shallow bowl, gill side up. Pour 1/2 of the marinade over each
mushroom, pouring a little in the bottom of the bowl first, to wet
the upside down cap, and the remainder into the upturned cap.
Marinate for 5-10 minutes. Do not marinate longer as the mushrooms
will absorb too much marinade.

Grill mushrooms on a wood or charcoal fire, or in a hot skillet on
the stovetop, or under a broiler. 2-3 minutes per side will usually
do, or until the mushrooms are browned and tender. If desired melt
a slice of cheese on top during the last minute or so of cooking.
Serve on burger buns with toppings of your choice.

i tasted this portebello mushroom as a burger at a local restaurant. but mine was better. i did substitude red wine for the vinegar and did not add the soy sauce for health reasons. my husband was totally impressed. the best benefit was that it is a healthy meal!

YUM!, November 24, 2004 - 09:53 PM
Reviewer: Dee from Bloomington, IN USA
By far the BEST grilled portabellas I've ever had - in or out of a restaurant. This recipe produces a very "meaty" flavor even though I used my oven's broiler and not a grill. Personally, I like it off the bun and without the cheese. This with a side of fennel leek mashed potatoes (Moosewood New Classics)wowed everyone.
