Grilled Portobello Mushrooms
Grilled portobello mushrooms are a delicious treat any time of the year. These are a substantial, dense food that can take the high heat of a grill. I often cook these whole, they can even by eaten like a burger. If cooking whole, pour olive oil onto the underside of the mushroom. The gills soak up a lot of oil and the oil leaks out and fires up on the grill so don't pour it in 'til they are full. Put a good tablespoon of minced garlic onto each underside and poke into the gills with a fork, let sit for an hour.
In the following recipe, I am using a grill pan to reduce flare up and save room as I am grilling some steaks too.
Grill over moderate to high heat, stir often. Sample every couple minutes to see when the are tender, it may take 10-20 minutes.
