Instructions

  1. 1

    Moisten a paper towel and use it to gently clean any dirt off of the portabello mushrooms.

  2. 2

    Place the portabello mushrooms in a colander.

  3. 3

    Run cold water over the portabello mushrooms for several seconds. Portabello mushrooms will not absorb much water if their contact with water is brief.

  4. 4

    Pat the portabello mushrooms dry with a paper towel.

  5. 5

    Cut the stems away using a small, sharp knife. In many stuffed mushroom recipes, they can be minced and added to the stuffing.

  6. 6

    Scoop out the gills of the mushroom with a small spoon.

  7. 7

    Stuff your portabello mushrooms.

Tips and warnings

  • Leaving the gills in will reduce the amount of stuffing that you can place in your portabello mushroom, but it will give the cooked mushroom an intense brown colour.
  • The longer you cook a portabello, the meatier the texture will be.
