Mom shared this recipe a while ago in an email.  I tried it the other day and loved it!  Mariah (my 3-year-old) also loved them; Elaine (2) and Mike wouldn't even try them. Not mushroom fans.

2-3 large portabello mushrooms (or 1 lb. baby portabellos)
1 T. water
1 T. balsamic vinegar
1/2 t. dried oregano
1 1/2 T. apple juice concentrate
2 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
2 T. soy sauce
  • Trim mushroom stems flush with base of the mushroom.  Discard stems (or cook them with the mushrooms).
  • Combine sauce ingredients in a skillet or sauce pan with a lid.
  • Warm over medium heat until bubbly.
  • Place mushrooms, top side down, in the pan.
  • Cover, and cook for 3-5 minutes.
  • Turn mushrooms over.
  • Cook, covered, for another 5 minutes.

Here's a how-to video:

Loved this! It was a bit too sweet so I think I'll seriously cut down on the apple juice concentrate, or leave it out, but I think most people would prefer it the way you have it posted. Again it was great! Makes me want to run out and buy more baby bella mushrooms.

O.k., I watched the video. I think grape juice (non-concentrated) subbed for the red wine/apple juice concentrate will do the trick.
