This is from Mayo-clinic. I loved that it was easy, healthy and tasty! I broiled baby portabellos on a cookie sheet.
- 4 large portabella mushrooms or 8 baby portabella mushrooms
- 1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup pineapple juice
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh ginger, peeled
- black pepper (optional)
- 1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
- Clean mushrooms with a damp cloth and remove their stems. Place in a glass dish, stemless (gill) side up.
- To prepare the marinade, in a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, pineapple juice and ginger. Drizzle the marinade over the mushrooms. Cover and let marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour, turning mushrooms once.
- Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the grill rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches form the heat source.
- Grill or broil the mushrooms on medium heat, turning often, until tender, about 5 minutes on each side. Baste with marinade to keep from drying out. Using tongs, transfer the mushrooms to a serving platter. Garnish with basil and serve immediately.
Will try again. Thirty minutes of marination did not do the trick. I used a stove-top grill pan due to lack of grill. These were tasty, but I expected more. Thank you for posting. Made for I Recommend Tag.
Yook mikekey's advice and added a splash of liquid smoke. We loved the pineapple flavor! Thanks, my barbecue was a hit because of Zaar recipies like this one!
These were good, but just a tad sweet. I will try them again during summer, on the grill. I think some smoke flavor would cut the sweet. Thanks for posting this!
