Portobello Mushrooms Steak with Smothered Onions (courtesy of "Gluten-Free Vegan Comfort Food" by Susan O'Brien)

Serves 4

This recipe was so delicious, I had to share it with everyone.

4 portobello mushrooms, cleaned and stems removed
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup red wine
3 cloves garlic minced
2 teaspoons tamarind sauce ( I used 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar and a splash of fresh orange juice)
1 teaspoon molasses
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
1/2 teaspoon Celtic salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Mix ingredients in a casserole dish. Coat mushrooms with marinade, and spoon marinade on top of gills. Let stand for 15 minutes on counter, flipping the mushrooms half way through. Heat grill pan, or grill, and grill for 3-5 minutes on each side. (Keep extra marinade for later)
Slice up one onion. Saute onions in olive oil ( 1/2 tablespoon) and cook until tender. Add a sprinkle of salt. Remove onions and set aside for later. In hot sauce pan add remaining marinade and keep over heat until hot. Remove mushrooms from grill pan , top with sauteed onions, and drizzle remaining warmed up marinade on top.

I have a meat lover at home, so I cooked up some chicken sausage from Trader Joe's (removed from casing) and added to sauteed onions. I then topped mushrooms with the sausage-onion mixture. It was delicious with the extra meat, but tasty just by itself for the non- meat lovers.
