Grilled Portobello Mushrooms are the steaks of the mushroom family. They are often so big and beefy. They are so versatile and tasty. These grilled big guys can be used to replace the meat on a burger, to top a salad or in a variety of dishes.
4 large portobello mushrooms, stemmed
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
2 clove garlic, minced
salt and pepper
grill (gas or charcoal)
2 small bowls
Preheat your gas grill to high. Make sure the grill has recently been cleaned with a grill brush. The grate of the grill should be well oiled so that the mushrooms will not stick to it. This can be done by dabbing the oil on a paper towel and rubbing the oil onto the grate using tongs. Caution should be used because the oil is flammable.
Rinse mushrooms gently under water and dab them with a paper towel. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, garlic, basil, salt and pepper. Using a basting brush, brush the mushroom tops lightly with the oil mixture.
After the grill is hot, put the mushroom caps, top side down, over the high heat. Then, brush the bottoms with the oil mixture. Grill until the mushrooms are tender, 5 minutes. Turn the mushrooms and cook just 2 minutes on the bottom.
Enjoy Grilled Portobello Mushrooms!
