portabella question?
 
I have some sliced portabellas that I want to grill up tonight with my thick arse pork chops. My question is after the search bar check I see recipes for stuffed portabellas only? Hence my question brethren...how do y'all grill up portabella slices? A little help or suggestions appreciated?

You could use a veggie basket or just a sheet of foil or a foil baking sheet.

Or, if they are big enough, put them on a skewer or two to make them easier to handle.

I would use skewers.

as far as prep, I like to marinate in a rosemary/garlic balsamic vinagrette for ~30 mins prior to grilling--that's for whole caps, so I might cut that to 15-20 mins.

We usually do the whole baby bellas but should work for sliced bigguns in a grill wok. Marinate in a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar, then grill directly, watching them like a hawk.

Both of these sound good to me.

I usually brush with some olive oil and then hit them with Montreal Steak Seasoning.

I treat them like a steak. You can just hit with some seasoning or can marinade them and then throw them on the grill.

I personally like my portobellas marinated in a little bit of soy, rice wine vinegar, ginger, pepper, bay leaf for 15mins then throw over a nice hot fire till they are done. It will be like an umami bomb went off in your mouth.

I like the responses!!! Direct or indirect? I'm assuming it won't take them long either way?

aawa 08-27-2013 12:00 PM

I do mine direct cooking

Ron_L 08-27-2013 12:04 PM

Direct.

deguerre 08-27-2013 12:31 PM

And deguerre makes three.
Direct.

Use to grill whole portabellas after marinated in balsamic and vinegar. Would grill for a while, add a tomato slice and then some cheese- usually a good provolone- Great meal

NOHENS 08-27-2013 02:25 PM

Sounds good fellas! Can you eat them raw? Not that I want to just wondered? Can they be undercooked. I've never grilled them?

deguerre 08-27-2013 02:30 PM

Yep. We have bellas in our salads, always. We just slice and marinate in balsamic for about 30 minutes then use the marinade vinegar to make a vinegrette. Raw mushrooms have a very meaty texture.

Big George's BBQ 08-27-2013 02:39 PM

Love mushrooms- grilled, sauteed, raw and fried

fantomlord 08-27-2013 03:30 PM

another vote for direct...of course, I've also done them reverse sear style when I'm too busy doing other things to watch them closely.
