Balsamic Portobello Steaks


1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
1/2 c. olive oil
1/4 c. fresh lemon juice
1/4 c. chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 large, fresh portobello mushroom caps, each
about 1/4 lb., brushed clean

In a large, shallow, nonreactive bowl, stir together the vinegar, olive oil, lemon juice, parsley and garlic. Add the mushrooms and turn to coat. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour, turning once. Drain before grilling.

Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Oil the grill rack.

Place the mushrooms, gill side down, over the hottest part of a charcoal fire or directly over the heat elements of a gas grill. Cook, turning once, until moist on the underside and just firm to the touch on the top, 4 to 6 minutes per side.

Arrange the mushrooms on individual plates and serve hot. Serves 6.
