Ingredients

  • 2 large portobello mushrooms
  • Olive oil
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • ¾ cup of red wine (preferably one with dark fruit notes)
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ sherry vinegar
  • Chives, finely diced, for garnish

Directions

Drizzle the mushrooms with olive oil and season generously on both sides with salt and pepper. Place them in a shallow dish and cover with red wine, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and sherry vinegar. Use a spoon to mix the marinade and make sure all the liquid ingredients are fully integrated. Then, baste the mushrooms with the marinade and let them soak for about 15-20 minutes on each side.

When ready, grill the mushrooms over high heat for about 2 minutes on each side, maybe a little less depending on your grill. To serve, garnish with diced chives.

Wine Shopping Tip

Choose a wine that you would drink. If you wouldn't drink it on its own, you shouldn't cook with it.

Wine Cooking Tip

After cooking steak, you can use red wine to de-glaze the pan.
