For the Marinade:

1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and black pepper to taste
Fresh herbs (such as parsley or chives) for garnish (optional)
Balsamic reduction (optional, for drizzling)
1. Prepare the Marinade:
In a small bowl, whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil, minced garlic, dried thyme, salt, and black pepper.
2. Marinate the Portobello Mushrooms:
Place the cleaned and stemmed portobello mushroom caps in a shallow dish or a resealable plastic bag.
Pour the marinade over the mushrooms, ensuring they are well coated. Allow them to marinate for at least 30 minutes or refrigerate for up to 4 hours, flipping the mushrooms occasionally to distribute the marinade evenly.
3. Preheat the Grill:
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.
4. Grill the Portobello Mushroom Steaks:
Remove the marinated mushroom caps from the dish or bag and place them directly on the preheated grill grates.
Grill for about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until the mushrooms are tender and have grill marks.
Transfer the grilled portobello mushroom steaks to a serving platter.
Garnish with fresh herbs (if desired) and drizzle with balsamic reduction for extra flavor.
Serve the marinated and grilled portobello mushroom steaks as a vegetarian main course alongside your favorite side dishes.
