Ingredients

2 large
portabella mushroom caps

MARINADE:

1/4 c
soy sauce
1/4 c
olive oil
1/2 c
red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp
worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp
liquid smoke flavoring
3 clove
garlic minced
1/4 tsp
black pepper
hot sauce (to taste)
2 large
hamburger buns
2 slice
cheese - (swiss or muenster are excellent)

OPTIONAL TOPPINGS:

tomato
lettuce leaves
onion
bacon
avocado
green chilies

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Prepare mushrooms by removing stems and wiping caps clean with a damp (not wet) paper towel.

Combine soy sauce, olive oil, vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, garlic, pepper and hot sauce.
2
Place each mushroom in a shallow bowl, gill side up. Pour 1/2 of the marinade over each mushroom, pouring a little in the bottom of the bowl first, to wet the upside down cap, and the remainder into the upturned cap. Marinate for 5 to 10 minutes.

Do not marinate longer as the mushrooms will absorb too much marinade.
3
Grill mushrooms on a wood or charcoal fire, or in a hot skillet on the stovetop, or under a broiler. Approximately 2 to 4 minutes per side will usually do, or until the mushrooms are browned and tender. If desired melt a slice of cheese on top during the last minute or so of cooking.

Serve on burger buns with toppings of your choice.
