Recipe Steps:

This recipe takes a little bit of prep work but I promise it’s worth it and makes a difference. Letting the mushrooms marinade for 30 minutes to an hour allows them to absorb all of the delicious flavors. Trust me, you want that! So plan to get these burgers ready 40ish minutes before you’d actually want to eat them.

You’ll want to combine all of the marinade ingredients either into a small bowl or a ziplock bag. A ziplock bag allows the flavors to be all around the mushrooms better but a shallow bowl works fine too! I used a shallow bowl below.

If you’re using a shallow bowl, just make sure you brush the tops of the mushrooms well so they can absorb the flavors too.

Let the mushrooms sit in the marinade for 30 minutes to an hour. You can make whatever sides you want to pair with these portobello mushroom burgers while you wait!

After the mushrooms have soaked up the flavors, heat a skillet over medium heat. I used this grill skillet. Add a little olive oil. Then add the mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes on each side. Enjoy!

I recommend eating these burgers right away. I’ve found portobello mushrooms don’t reheat super well.
