Portabello mushrooms make the perfect substitute for a regular burger and are a great way to include vegans or vegetarians in your next backyard barbecue without having to buy exotic ingredients. The total cost of the recipe is $3.52 or about $0.88 for each mushroom "burger" without the bun or toppings.

  1. Remove stems from portabello mushrooms. (I don't remove the gills.)
  2. Mix together red wine vinegar, soy sauce, olive oil, granulated garlic, granulated onion, dried oregano, and black pepper. in a shallow dish that will hold all 4 mushroom caps.

  5. Place mushrooms, smooth side up, on the grill and grill for approximately 5 - 7minutes per side or until they are tender, brushing frequently with the leftover marinade in your dish.
