How to cook mushrooms on the BBQ hotplate

Too many people fret unnecessarily when it comes to cooking mushrooms. This simple method makes light work of the weird and wonderful mushroom, and can be used for all kinds, button mushroom size and up.

Mushrooms

Step #1

It always causes a sly grin watching people take mushrooms straight from the pack and throw them into the cooking. 

Mushrooms

Mushrooms are grown almost entirely in compost people. If cow shit is available, then that’s in there too. 

Mushrooms

And unlike almost all other vegetables, mushrooms don’t really like being hit with water after they’ve stopped growing. So use some damp paper towel for best results. I usually just quickly hit them with some cold water, easy.

Although I’m sure it’s perfectly safe to do so, and plenty have eaten worse, but really, do you want this with your beer?

Cook the bottom side first

Depending on the desired end result, I like to cook the bottom side of the mushroom first as this allows the goodness juice to settle in the cup once you flip it.

At this stage, nothing else is needed – they are perfect just like this. But, a little salt, pepper – amazing.

If you need more flavor then butter works well while cooking, just put some in the little cup part and let it do its thing.

They are pretty hard to stuff up

If by some weird chance you end up with mushrooms that aren’t tasty enough then drop some balsamic vinegar on them and smile. These mushrooms pictured here though – nothing except salt and pepper. Mushrooms are self-saucers!

The Self Saucer Giant Mushroom
Mushrooms are awesome especially giant ones

Or my personal favorite (especially at breakfast time when hungover with a bloody mary) get amongst the worcestershire sauce.

These large mushrooms are great when cooked whole and sliced up later – a perfect beer snack.

No oil or butter was used during the cooking of the mushrooms pictured here.

A giant mushroom or two is a reasonable substitute for a steak. Haha no it’s not you crazy vegetarians.

Mushrooms

Mushrooms contain a serious amount of water so be sure to let them cool before you wrap your sensitive little lips around them.

These things really are a hit with the fans, so as well as cutting them up be a nice host and lay out some forks.
