Portobello mushrooms seasoned with chili sauce and oyster sauce. The perfect side dish for meat and poultry dishes.
I enjoy Portobello Mushrooms because it allows me to stay away from red meat when I need to. Because I like it a lot, I have found ways to be creative with my recipes.
Grilled Chili Portobello Mushrooms with Oyster Sauce was spontaneous. I was cooking several vegetable dishes and did not want to add salt, pepper, etc. So I thought, why not try it with Oyster Sauce. And to make the dish more exciting, why not use Chili Oil.
Is it worth buying Oyster Sauce
Oyster Sauce is loaded with sodium. There are several expensive ingredients/spices I buy because of their quality. I refuse to settle for cheap brands, which is one of them.
A good Oyster Sauce should not be watery, light, or brown and taste very salty. A good Oyster Sauce is a thick, flavorful sauce that is dark brown and has a low sodium count. Next time you want to buy Oyster Sauce, stay away from a cheap brand; you do more harm to your food.
What to know about Chili Oil
Chili Oil is olive oil flavored with chili peppers. I often say to myself that God knew what he was doing by not allowing me to have a huge kitchen, huge pantry, and being able to buy all sorts of spices and ingredients I want. I would be a culinary addict if there were such a thing.
How to make pan-roast portobello mushrooms
Chili Oil is excellent with many dishes. I often use it in side dishes like vegetables and salad dressings. To make the Grilled Chili Portobello Mushrooms with Oyster Sauce, I first seasoned the mushrooms slices with black pepper, garlic powder, chili oil, olive oil, and oyster sauce. Two different oils are added because chili oil has a strong peppery taste.
The mushroom slices are then cooked on a griddle pan, coated with cooking spray. By the way, buying pre-slice Portobello mushrooms is much easier. Just a good wipe with a damped cloth or paper towel is sufficient.
The mushroom slices are cooked for 3 – 4 minutes per side. No salt is added because the oyster sauce contains enough sodium for flavor. If you use salt in this recipe, be very careful, as the dish may be salty.
