You got to try this beg burger – Portobello Burgers with Grilled Vegetables.
There’s something about grilling that I love. I love the sound the grill makes when the food touches the hot grill. I love the grill marks it leaves behind as it caramelizes to bring it’s sugary goodness. I love the smoky taste of the food when it’s grilled.
I love grilling everything from fruit, vegetables, meat, and seafood. This portobello mushroom burger is grilled to perfection and it is meaty, smoky, and delicious. It has the components of a burger without the buns and you won’t even notice that it’s bunless. The portobello is the king of all mushrooms and it is the perfect size to keep the burger in place along with all the fixings.
Grilling vegetables on the grill is very easy. Start by chopping the vegetables thick enough so that that they don’t fall through the grill. Then drizzle the vegetables with EVOO and season with salt and pepper and herbs of your choice like oregano, basil, cilantro, parsley, etc. Heat the grill on medium high so that you can take advantage of the heat to caramelize the vegetables. This is what makes grilling so tasty so be sure to heat it at the right temperature. The most important lesson in grilling is patience so be sure to flip the vegetables when it is ready. You’ll know when it’s not ready when you’re having a hard time peeling it away from the grill.
I would not be the grill master that I am today without myTRU-Infrared Grill by Char-Broil. It is fool proof and you can’t ruin anything and I mean it. I haven’t had one bad incident yet. The infrared is the best I’ve had as it heats up fast and it distributes heat evenly so the food always comes out perfectly cooked and juicy. What I love the most about the infrared grill is that it does not flare up like other grills. I just hate when you place a fatty meat like the rib-eye and all of a sudden your meat is completely charred and raw in the middle. Nothing like ruining a nice cut of meat. I highly recommend this grill to anyone at all levels of experience because it will make you look and feel like a grill master.
Recap: Whole30 Day 1
It is day 1 of the Whole30 challenge and I made it. Yay! 29 more days to go. My energy level is low because I went to bed at 12:30 a.m. and finally got up at 6:30 a.m. I snoozed for as long as time permitted before finally getting out of bed to walk the fur baby. I know I should go to bed earlier so I can get 8 hours of sleep but old habits are hard to break. So far so good but I was tested in the morning by a few chocolate chip cookies and red velvet cookies sitting out in the coffee room. Whoever left those cookies is evil but I’m glad I didn’t cave.
