How Long to Marinade Portobello Mushrooms:
You do not need to marinate the Portobello Mushrooms for very long. We recommend marinating for about 10 minutes but you can leave it in for about 30 minutes.
How Long do you Grill Mushrooms:
Grill mushrooms on a preheated grill for about 3 to 4 minutes on each side. You will know the mushrooms are done when they are golden brown.
- Allow Mushrooms to Rest – You can let the mushrooms sit after cooking them. The longer they sit, the more intense the flavor becomes.
- Balsamic Vinegar – We recommend using balsamic vinegar as it adds so much flavor.
- Olive Oil – We love the flavor that olive gives these mushrooms. But you can also use avocado oil or another higher smoke point oil.
- Lemon Juice – If you prefer you can add in some lemon juice with the other marinade ingredients.
- Picking Mushrooms – When picking your fresh portobello mushrooms, we recommend choosing ones that are about the same size.
- Grilling Mushrooms – After the portobello mushrooms have been on the grill for about 1 to 2 minutes, press them down on the grill with a spatula. This allows for the grill evenly and the best grill marks.
- Garlic – We used garlic powder in this recipe, but you can use minced garlic as well.
- Soy Sauce – Add soy sauce to the marinade for amazing savory flavor.
- Excess Marinade – Before placing the mushrooms on the grill, shake off any excessive liquid. You many even need to dry with a paper towel.
