Grilled Balsamic Portabella Mushroom Burger

Grilled Balsamic Portabella Mushroom Burger created by danakscully64

This healthy recipe is from the Mayo Clinic. The balsamic vinegar is really a nice complement to the mushrooms.

Ready In:
1hr 15mins



  • Clean mushrooms with a damp cloth and remove their stems. Place in a glass dish, stem (gill) side up.
  • To prepare the marinade, in a small bowl whisk together the vinegar, water, sugar, garlic, cayenne pepper and olive oil. Drizzle the marinade over the mushrooms. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour, turning mushrooms once.
  • Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a 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 from 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 plate and serve immediately.

    Great recipe for our meatless dinner. I removed the gills from the mushrooms and made the recipe as is. Served on toasted wheat buns and topped with cheese.

    This satisfied my portabella burger craving. I left out the cayenne since I made it for my 3yo too and served it with jack cheese and lettuce on a whol wheat bun. My husband thought it was delicious and ate it in just 4 bites it seems. I wasn't so lucky because I was helping my son eat his so mine got really soggy because of all the marinade the mushroom absorbed. Taste was there but very messy if you aren't able to eat it immediately.

    Portabello mushrooms disappoint once again. Edible, but not amazing.

    I liked this. I was in a rush, so I didn't marinade it for long, but it was still very tasty. I used my oven broiler (no BBQ) and my burger was perfectly cooked. I served it on a large hamburger bun with Veganaise, Cheddar, and lettuce. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
