Cajun Spiced Portobello Mushrooms

I used to think mushrooms made baby Jesus cry, they were so heinous. Now of course I love them, just like the boring adult that I am.

These mushrooms won’t make anyone cry. They’ll just make you happy.

I believe they started off attempting to be a Tal Ronnen recipe who was featured on, but once I found out you were supposed to braise them gently like little mushroom babies for three hours, I quickly adapted it!

Portobello mushrooms, cleaned and cut into strips. (I used about five for two people with leftovers)
sea salt
onion powder
garlic powder
dried oregano
dried thyme

I laid all the strips out on their sides on a chopping board, and just sprinkled everything over. Then I turned the strips and did the same to the other side. I also managed to dye the chopping board red with all the paprika, so I don’t recommend you do the same… maybe use a plate!

I also made a total mess, but they look good anyway.

I grilled them over medium to low heat, with the cover down on the barbecue. Turned after about five minutes, and grilled for another seven to ten minutes.
They were pretty awesome.


  1. Those mushrooms look delicious! I used to hate mushrooms too, but now I love them.

  2. I can't believe what an idiot I was, haha!

  3. I have all of those things!  Except for the mushrooms. DAMMIT ALL TO HELL I WANT IT NOW!

  4. I'm starving. Want me to send you some?

  5. NOW.  Oh and I totally pinned that shizzle.

    You need one of those buttons. x

  6. Haha typically, I spend hours pasting my pin button code into every post. The ONE day I post from work and think I'll add the code when I get home, somebody wants to pin. Seriously, it's on every other recipe post! Just my luck :-)
    Ps thanks for pinning xx
