Grilled Portobello Mushroom "Steaks"

Yield: 8-10 servings | Prep time: 15 minutes | Cook time: 10 minutes | Total time: 25 minutes


I made these vegan mushroom steaks on a whim one night and they turned out too good not to share!! They’re tender, savory, juicy, and amazing. And best of all, they're cruelty free!


  • 8-10 portobello mushroom caps

  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce

  • 1 tsp liquid smoke

  • 1 tbsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp black pepper

  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

  • Vegan steak sauce for glazing (optional)


  • Place all of the mushroom caps in a large shallow dish (a baking dish or sheet usually works best).

  • Combine the rest of the ingredients in a bowl.

  • Pour the marinade over the mushroom caps.

  • Marinate the mushrooms for 5 minutes on each side.

  • Heat your grill to about 450° F (medium-high heat).

  • Place the mushrooms on your grill.

  • Grill the mushrooms for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until they become a little charred. ○ You can brush a little steak sauce on each side while grilling them if desired. These are delicious both with and without the steak sauce.

  • Serve immediately with any side you'd like (veggies, potatoes, pasta) or put them on little slider buns!


Tips and Tricks:

  • These mushrooms have a smokey, meaty flavor to them, but they will still taste like mushrooms and not actually steak. However, they're a great substitute for when you're craving something savory and hearty! They're also great for bbq's and parties.

  • You can make the marinade the day before to save time during your cooking process.

  • The mushrooms will shrink slightly while on the grill, but they will stay super juicy.
