Balsamic marinated mushrooms

Grilled Portobello Balsamic marinated mushrooms

One of the things I love about this balsamic marinated mushrooms recipe is that it’s delicious and healthy. While it may be somewhat surprising, there actually aren’t too many healthy grilled Portobello mushroom recipe options available online.

Mushrooms themselves are quite healthy, but most of the recipes I have found online add in all sorts of unhealthy ingredients that just ruins the nutrition completely. If you want to serve your family a taste but healthy meal, this one is certainly worth taking a close look at. I made sure to include only healthy ingredients that add unique flavor.

The key to a good balsamic marinated mushrooms recipe is simplicity. Many of the Portobello mushroom marinade recipes for these dishes on the internet are overly complicated and difficult to follow all the way through, but not this one.


I was determined to write a grilled Portobello mushroom recipe that is both simple and rewarding. The fact is that you really don’t need to be a master chef or spend a lot of time in the kitchen to make Portobello mushrooms. As long as you have a solid recipe like this Portobello mushroom marinade, you will do just fine, even without much cooking experience.

For this balsamic marinated mushrooms, I can for 4 large mushrooms. This may seem like kind of a lot, but really I think it’s just the right amount. I believe that a good grilled Portobello mushroom recipe should use a decent amount of actual mushroom. I also implement olive oil and cloves of garlic for flavor, which I think is a great idea.

Too many people make their Portobello mushrooms plain, which to me is just boring and tasteless. The balsamic vinegar is one incredibly important ingredient in this recipe that you also don’t want to forget because of how it makes the overall taste really pop.

  • 4 pieces Portobello mushrooms large
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4 tbsp salt or to taste


  1. 1. Take a zip lock bag to mix together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, black pepper and salt.

  2. 2. Use a spoon to start preparing the mushrooms. I typically take out the “gills” from the mushrooms, though it ultimately comes down to a personal preference. Scoop out the gills and toss them away by using a large spoon. Make sure that you rinse the mushroom thoroughly and place it in the marinade you have created in the ziplock container.

  3. 3. Let the mushrooms sit in the marinade for about 30 minutes or even overnight. (longer it marinates better the taste)

  4. 4. I usually prepare my meals the night before so that I don’t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen on weeknights.

  5. 5. Preheat the grill pan to just past the medium-high heat. Take the mushrooms out of the marinade and put them on the grill. Grill the mushrooms until they become soft and tender (about 5 minutes for both the sides of the mushroom.)

Recipe Notes

There are a couple of tips that you will want to keep in mind, including that you may want to leave your mushrooms on the grill for a little bit longer, especially if you like them charred on the sides like I do.

When you remove the mushrooms from the grill, you will be able to slice and serve them as a side or the main dish. These mushrooms look like a delicious and tender steak, and they taste just as good. My whole family loves this balsamic marinated mushrooms recipe, and I am sure yours will too!

You will find that this balsamic marinated mushrooms recipe takes about 45 minutes to make in total, which really isn’t that bad. Although some people seem to think that a grilled Portobello mushroom recipe has to take a very long time to make, this isn’t true if you keep it simple.
