I almost did not want to share this recipe with the world, it is that good…I wanted to keep it a “secret” and serve it at dinner parties with a wink, stating it is a sealed family herloom. But the more I thought about it, I decided that I would rather share the mouthwatering deliciousness with all, proving that portobellos truly can be a star player at dinner.
Portabello mushrooms are a great steak alternative, being chock full of vitamins and minerals such as potasium and calcium, and with only 22 calories and 0.2 g fat for an 3 oz portion verus steaks 243 calories and 8.6 grams of fat, they are hands down the nutritious choice. And now they are the tastier choice (give it a try and let me know what you think!) Serve with Couscous and steamed broccoli (and make sure to make extra sauce, to pour over everything!)
