But we have been barbecuing. Some old recipes and new ones. Here's an old one...
Nearly 15 years ago, when I was bartending at Valhalla in Houston, we would have a few bartender parties ever year. We were all grad student volunteers, so the biggest benefit to bartending was the parties. Free beer and free food. Well one of the bartenders was a former chef and current martial arts teacher, and he was given a budget to feed us. Most of the grad students at these parties were interested in the free beer, but the food was pretty awesome. At one particular party, I hit up the chef and asked him, "These grilled mushrooms are amazing, what's the recipe?"
"I'm almost embarrassed to tell you. It's really simple."
"No, it's really embarrassingly simple..."
So here it is:
Portobello mushroomsGet the best portobellos you can.
Italian salad dressing
Peel the skin and the gills off.
Chop into large chunks. You want them not to fall into the grill slats. And toss the mushrooms with Italian dressing all over.
Heat a grill to screaming hot, however is your favorite method. (I use charcoal grill, started with a chimney starter
Grill, maybe two minutes a side, just until you have grill marks on the mushrooms.
Serve while screaming hot.
When you bite into them, and the molten hot juices spray into your mouth, well... it's dangerous but embarrassingly delicious. I don't often post "simple" recipes, but this is one. And it's pretty awesome.
