"Easy, delicious and very steak-like. I've given options for either fresh or dried herbs, but these 'shrooms really shine with the fresh stuff!"

    How to properly clean out a Portobello mushroom


  1. Derf2440
    Oh Boy, Portobellos!! What a feast, who needs steak, these are wonderfull, we did just 4 , under the broiler and had them with a summer veggie salad. The classic combination of garlic, olive oil and balsamic vinegar, can't be beat! and of course the rosemary and thyme just top it off perfectly! Can hardly wait to have'em again, thanks for sharing Mirj!!

    DH and I both love mushrooms, but had never experienced Portabellos or even heard of them for that matter. My first encounter of them was this recipe shortly after I came to 'Zaar and I wanted so badly to try them. Recently, the grocery store I shop at began carrying them. Then I had to ask Mirj how I could tell if they were 'good' produce. She very patiently described what they should look like and what to avoid. I watched until one day, I found 'Portabellos' that were 'obviously' very fresh and 'good'! I snagged onto them, came home and printed this recipe. Here it is, winter--much too cold to be outside grilling in Iowa--and I only have a George Foreman copycat grill to fall back on for inside during the winter. I posted more questions for Mirj, which she again did her best to answer. She thought I could probably do them in the 'copycat' grill, so I did. Fortunately for me, I had the grill open almost the entire time they were cooking as I was turning and basting them with the balsamic vinegar/olive oil/seasoning blend, as Mean Chef posted a message after we'd eaten them that the 'copycat' grill needed to be left open, otherwise the mushrooms would get soggy...whew...that was close... ;-) Well, after this experience DH and I certainly plan to have these again. We had them for a quick and light lunch, served on the side with hotdogs, of all things! The recipe says 6 servings, but I guess we're gluttons 'cause the two of us scarffed them all down! Thank you for answering all of my questions Mirj and for sharing another winning recipe!!!

    I love portabellos and this was heavenly . I grilled them with steak and baby potatoes and the results were mouth watering. This deserves 10 stars.

    Very easy to do and absolutely delish! I made these (reduced portion to 2 mushrooms), together with your Recipe #14681 and my recipe #83671 (but used blueberry jam and shredded Chedder instead) . Cheese, tomatoes and mushrooms with garlic, herbs and vinegar. I'm in heaven now. Check out the photo!

    Yum! I used Pinot Grigio instead of vinegar. This was the first dish I made on my new grill, and it was sooooo good. Thanks!

If you ask my husband (or my coworkers), I haven't logged out since! <br /><br /><a href=><br /><img src=;15;0/st/20011021/e/I Joined Zaar%21/dt/6/k/f656/event.png border=0 alt= /></a> <br /><br />So what's happened in the ten years since I became addicted to Zaar? Well, I've been happily married, happily divorced, and happily married once again. (Wanna see wedding pictures? Click <a href=>here</a>.) <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />Originally from the Bronx, I've been living in Israel since 1983. I'm married to a brilliant man with the most yummy British accent (this is the part where he rolls his eyes and says, Yeah, yeah, yeah). Let's call him Sushiman, even though he hates that name. <a href=>Chia</a> gave him that nickname when I was trying to create a dinner to show off my culinary talents. I posted here on Zaar with questions about the menu and since sushi was the main focus of the meal, he became Sushiman. That dinner was just the first of what I hope will become a lifetime of meals together. <br /><br />This is a picture of us taken in September 2005 in Kew Gardens in London. It my favorite picture of the two of us. <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting /></a> <br /><br />This comes in as a close second, taken March 2009: <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />I have 4 of the most gorgeous daughters in the known universe (tfu, tfu, tfu, that's me spitting three times to ward off the Evil Eye). Sushiman has 4 kids of his own, so together that makes us a family of ten, together with my dog and my step-dog (sadly, since I first wrote this my step-dog, Honey, crossed the Rainbow Bridge). We're the Brady Bunch on speed. Not all eight live with us, but everyone is in and out all of the time, so we're thinking about replacing our front door with one of those revolving thingies.</p> <p>If you need help figuring out the whole complicated mess, you can check out <a title=Miriyummy -- A Guide to the Perplexed href= target=_blank>Miriyummy, A Guide to the Perplexed</a>.</p> <p>Here are my four beauties -- from left to right: Adiya, Sara, Nomi and Tehila <br /><br /><a href= target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><br />On March 18, 2009, my oldest, Sara, got married to Ariel.
