No grill prep
Use a cast iron skillet and cook the mushrooms on the stove top on medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes per side.
You can also grill the portobello mushrooms in the oven on 400°F (200°C) for 15-20 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
Matt and Megha's tips
If you want the mushrooms to be more cooked through, you can grill them with the lid down a little longer. If you do that, cook on a lower heat to avoid them getting too soggy.
