Portobello Mushroom Steaks [Vegan, Gluten-Free]






  • 1 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup vegan vegetable or vegan beef broth
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, diced
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon mirin or sherry
  • 1/2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • A dash of ground black pepper
  • 2 large, whole Portobello mushrooms


  1. In a large frying pan, heat the butter over medium heat. Once melted, add half of the broth and bring to a simmer.
  2. Next, add the onion and garlic. Cook for about 8 minutes over medium-high heat.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk together the remaining ingredients in a small bowl, excluding the mushrooms and the remaining broth. Wipe the mushrooms with a damp cloth to clean them and pull off the stems.
  4. Add the whisked mixture to the pan and reduce to medium heat. Bring to a simmer, and then add in the Portobello caps and their stems.
  5. Cover and cook for about 8 minutes. Gently turn over the mushrooms, add in the remaining broth, cover, and cook an additional 8 minutes.
  6. Serve hot, topped with the juice and onions over top.

"Gluten-Free" : Sadly Most Soy sauces AREN\'T gluten free :/ You usually have to buy sauces specifically made to be gluten free. Not everyone would know this so thought to point I out! Great recipe regardless!

It does look yummy but your page is causing my browser to freeze - 2nd time in as many days. Have not had this problem with your site before but if it continues I won't be visiting any more.
