BBQ Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms Recipe from


Remember that Spicy Pulled Pork Stuffed Sweet Potato I raved about a while back? Well, I made her a favorite cousin with this BBQ Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms recipe I whipped up.


I’ve been really trying to cut back on my bread as much as possible – well, except for cake and cookies, but we won’t go there at the moment – so this recipe for stuffing the BBQ into or really onto a large portobello mushrooms is really perfection. The heartiness of the portobello is really, really filling and is amazing with the flavors of the spicy pulled pork. I really didn’t miss the bread a single bit.

These only take a few minutes to make. The slow cooker does all of the work making the spicy pulled pork and then it just takes a few minutes to soften the portobello on the stove. Then, I like to pile the portobello high with BBQ and toss on some Monterrey Jack cheese for good measure. Quick, easy, filling, and oh so satisfying. It’s a keeper for sure.

And you know what I did after all of the dishes were washed and cleared away? I dove into a piece of this.

Yep, I’m so glad I’m cutting back on my bread.

Here’s the recipe for my BBQ Stuffed Portobellos Mushrooms. I think you’ll love it.

Using a pair of tongs or a large spoon, place spicy pulled pork on top of the gill side of the portobello mushroom. Sprinkle with cheese.
  2. Cover the skillet with a lid for about a minute to lightly melt the cheese. Remove the lid and sprinkle portobellos with salt and pepper. Serve warm.
