1/3 cup apple juice
1/2 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon tamari
2 teaspoons molasses
1 tablespoon and 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon pickling spice
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon cane sugar
1 teaspoon garlic
4 to 6 Portobello mushrooms
Blend all ingredients (besides the mushrooms) in a Vitamix blender on high speed. Taste marinade and adjust to personal taste – sweetness, salt and pepper.
Pour mixture over mushrooms and marinate for at least eight hours, if possible.
After marinating, the mushrooms can be grilled or sautéed. Serve as a steak or use as a patty for a burger.
