Bering’s Big Green Egg Portabella Mushrooms Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 4 Portabella mushroom caps
  • Olive oil
  • Balsamic vinegar
  • 2 Garlic cloves, minced
  • Salt and pepper

Food Prep:

  1. Use a damp paper towel to clean the top of the mushrooms.
  2. Take out mushroom stems. (A small spoon works best or simply nudge with your fingers to remove)
  3. Drizzle olive oil on the mushroom gills.
  4. Drizzle balsamic on the mushroom gills.
  5. Using your fingers, apply garlic to each cap by rubbing into the gills.
  6. Apply salt and pepper to your caps using a grinder or by sprinkling.
  7. Place caps on baking sheet for 30 minutes to an hour or Ziploc bag. (You can leave them overnight for deeper flavor)

BGE Setup:

  1. Fill Big Green Egg with charcoal to the first ring.
  2. Light the fire with vents wide open on bottom and top, and after about 5-10 minutes use your ash tool to stir the charcoal up. This will help the fire spread quicker.
  3. Close lid and leave vents open until temperature reaches 450 degrees.

  5. Cook for 7 minutes, then flip over and cook another 5-7 minutes. (Gills will start to sweat at this point.)
  6. Half way through cooking you can check to see how the caps are cooking, they should start to wilt, plus develop grill marks.
  7. Pull off the grill and serve immediately.

Tip: Feel free to slice the mushrooms any way you like. They are great for burgers, pizzas and other dishes.

Variations:

  • You can use basil pesto instead of balsamic ingredients.
  • Freshly minced Parmesan Reggiano or parsley adds flavor.
  • Goat cheese & green olives can be added to your sliced mushrooms as a salad.
