Portobello Mushrooms Sesame

Portobello mushrooms are large, mature brown mushrooms. The caps are fully opened, exposing dark gills on the underside. These gills should look dry, not wet or shiny. If your barbecue has no cover, tent mushrooms with foil to keep the portobellos moist.

Ingredients

4 large portobello mushrooms
2 tablespoons sweet rice wine
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dark sesame oil

Preparation

  1. Prepare grill for direct grilling.
