4Pan fry in about 2" of canola or olive oil till brown, on both sides. Your gonna want a fairly hot oil because the tomatoes will get mushy pretty fast. It took me about 2 min. per side.

5One of my favorite ways to have portabello's and tomatoes is with onion, cilantro, melted cheese and Thai Garlic Sauce.
