Balsamic Portobello Steaks
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 6 large, fresh portobello mushroom caps, each
about 1/4 lb., brushed clean
Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Oil the grill rack.
Place the mushrooms, gill side down, over the hottest part of a charcoal fire or directly over the heat elements of a gas grill. Cook, turning once, until moist on the underside and just firm to the touch on the top, 4 to 6 minutes per side.
Arrange the mushrooms on individual plates and serve hot. Serves 6.
