Grilled Portobello Mushroom Recipe

Grilled portobello mushrooms are one of my all-time favorite dishes. The meaty texture and earthy flavor of portobello mushrooms make them a perfect candidate for grilling. Whether you’re a vegetarian looking for a satisfying main course or a meat lover searching for a flavorful side dish, grilled portobello mushrooms are sure to impress.


  • 4 large portobello mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Gently clean the portobello mushrooms using a damp paper towel. Remove the stems and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together balsamic vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, dried oregano, salt, and pepper.
  3. Place the mushrooms in a shallow dish and pour the marinade over them, turning to coat. Let them marinate for at least 30 minutes, turning occasionally.
  4. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  5. Place the mushrooms on the grill, gill side down, and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until tender.
  6. While grilling, baste the mushrooms with the remaining marinade to enhance the flavor.
  7. Once done, remove the mushrooms from the grill and let them rest for a few minutes before serving.

Grilled portobello mushrooms can be served in various ways. You can enjoy them as a standalone dish, slice them and add to salads, or even use them as a burger patty alternative. I love to serve them with a sprinkle of fresh parsley and a drizzle of balsamic glaze for an extra touch of flavor.

If you’re a fan of smoky flavors, you can try adding a bit of smoked paprika or liquid smoke to the marinade. The possibilities are endless when it comes to customizing this recipe to suit your preferences.


Grilled portobello mushrooms are a versatile and delicious option for anyone looking to add more plant-based dishes to their meals. I hope you enjoy trying out this recipe as much as I do!
