Ingredients

For the marinade

  • 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • Juice from 1 large lemon
  • 2 Teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 4 large portobello mushroom caps, cleaned and gills removed

For the mushroom fillings

  • 2 large plum or vine-ripened heirloom tomatoes, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick slices
  • 2 sprigs fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/2 Pound fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced

Directions

For the marinade

Combine the marinade ingredients and pour over the mushrooms. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 8 hours.

For the mushroom fillings

Remove the mushrooms from marinade and reserve the marinade for later use.   

Season the tomato slices with salt and pepper.

Heat a grill to medium-high heat and grill the mushrooms until cooked through and tender, about 10-15 minutes. When mushrooms are tender and still warm, layer with mozzarella, tomato slices, and chopped basil. In a small saucepan, heat the marinade until warm. Serve the stack on a plate or in a bowl and drizzle with the warm marinade. 

 

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
