Grilled Button Mushrooms
Portobellos are great onthe grill. But what about the little guys?
Why This Recipe Works
Few foods benefit as much from the high, dry heat of live-fire cooking as mushrooms do, but the recipes we tried for grilling button mushrooms delivered less-than-adequate results. The biggest hurdle was the stems, which resulted in uneven cooking. We discovered that trimming the stems flush with the caps and tossing the mushrooms with a mixture of extra-virgin olive oil, salt, and pepper gave us the best results—moist and evenly cooked. To finish the mushrooms, we gathered them in a disposable pan and tossed them with melted butter, parsley, soy sauce, lemon juice, thyme, and garlic. We then set the pan back on the grill and stirred the mushrooms for a few minutes while they absorbed the flavors.
