Marinated Portabellos - A good idea?

Gary Rolin | Dec 5, 2002 10:27 AM

In my attempts to lose weight while at the same time sacrifcing as little flavor possible, I have recently been inspired to explore the world of Portabello Mushrooms.

I ran across a recipe for "Grilling Portabellos like a steak" which basically involves taking marinated portabellos, brushing with olive oil and grilling them.

I have had them and they are very good. I was considering having a container in my refrigerator with portabellos marinating so that all I would have to do is throw them on the grill.

Two questions come to mind:

1. Is this a good idea? Would the marinade begin to do nasty things to the portabello? Would there be things I should avoid when concocting the marinade?

2. If it is a good idea, how long could I store it for? I am thinking that if a use something like a balsamic vinegar, it would keep for a good long time.

Extra points for suggestion on marinade recipes.
