I picked up a pack of portobello mushroom caps at Costco the other week. I love all types of mushrooms and portobello are one of my favorite varieties. They are meaty and easily to use a bunch of different ways. I decided to marinated this package and grill them up.
They were perfect in a salad with roasted red peppers, artichoke, kalamata olives and grilled chicken. I also sliced one, place it a roll and melted a slice of cooper sharp cheese. It was so good!
4 portobello mushroom caps, grills and stems removed
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and fresh ground pepper
1/4 tsp dried thyme
In a large ziplock bag, combine the oil, vinegar, garlic and spices. Mix together. Place the mushroom caps into the bag and squeeze out any excess air. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or longer. I marinated my mushrooms for 4 hours and they were full of flavor.
Preheat your grill to medium heat. Place the mushrooms cap side down and grill for 5-7 minutes. Flip over and cook for another 5 minutes for until the mushrooms are fork tender. Remove from the grill. Enjoy immediately.
