*poof* And just like that, all of the grilled (I used my trust Weber grill) marinated mushrooms I had just made disappeared. No, it’s not because I’ve changed my name to Houdini. It’s these fantastic mushrooms that did it. Each bite is a wonderful combination of meaty mushroom, salty soy sauce, a few spices and a nice balsamic vinegar kick. To cool all that down I served the mushrooms with a homemade blue cheese dressing for dipping. I didn’t do a whole lot of dipping, but I sure did a whole lot of eating.
This is just one of many, many great recipe ideas I found in Brother Jimmy’s BBQ: More Than 100 Recipes. Heck, the book was worth it just for these grilled marinated mushrooms. They are a common sight (for the minutes that they last) around here.
I always use a grill basket when I make these mushrooms or just about any other dish like it. It sure makes for easy cooking. I don’t have to worry about anything falling through the grates. A basket also makes for super-easy cleanup!
Also try my spicy grilled mushrooms.
