Portobello Steaks

Michelle Bates-Phipps


was looking for a new way to use Portobello caps. I searched for recipes and found one similar to this at The Happy Herbivore's website. Of course, I had to alter it to make it my own! It is delicious. My husband hasn't stopped talking about it since dinner...
