Marinated Grilled Portabellas
This recipe is a favorite of those who like marinated mushrooms. Remember, however, that portabellas act like sponges, so marinate the mushrooms for only a short period of time, or the resulting dish will be very vinegary and unpleasant. If you don't have a grill, bake the portabellas in a 350ºF oven for 5-7 minutes.
* 4 large Phillips Portabella caps, 4-6 inches in diameter
* 1 cup good-quality olive oil
* 1 cup red or white wine vinegar
* 2 tablespoons soy sauce
* 1 tablespoon sugar
* 1 tablespoon dried herbs, 1⁄2 cup finely chopped fresh herbs
Cut the stems from the caps of the mushrooms. Slice each stem lengthwise.
Combine the rest of the ingredients and blend well with a whisk for a minute or two. Let the marinade sit for 1 hour until the herbs soften.
Prepare the grill.
Place the mushrooms in a shallow dish or pan and pour the marinade over the mushrooms. Let the mushrooms marinate for 10 minutes, turning occasionally to ensure uniform coating. Remove the mushrooms from the marinade and place on the hot grill. Grill on each side for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the grill, slice, and serve immediately.
