Portabellas Stuffed with Blue Cheese

Ben Fink

Yield: Yields 4 mushrooms

These are delicious with steak. For a great main-course salad, toss some spinach with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar, top with the mushrooms, and pour the hot pan juices over the leaves to wilt them.

Ingredients

  • 4 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh thyme
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup port
  • 2-1/2 oz. fresh spinach leaves, washed and coarsely chopped (4 cups loosely packed)
  • 4 medium-size fresh portabellas (stems removed), wiped clean
  • 2 oz. blue cheese

Preparation

  • Heat 2 Tbs. of the oil in a large skillet until moderately hot. Add the onion and cook until soft and lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper and cook for another 5 to 7 min. Add the port and cook until the liquid is reduced by about two-thirds, about another 10 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until it’s wilted. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Wipe the skillet clean.
  • Gently rub a spoon on the underside of the mushroom caps to scrape off the gills. Heat the remaining 2 Tbs. of olive oil in the skillet until hot. Add the mushrooms, gill side up, and cook over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2 minutes. Flip the mushrooms again so the gill side is up. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Top each mushroom with the onion mixture, pouring the juices over the mushrooms. Add 1 Tbs. water to the pan and simmer, covered, until the mushrooms are barely tender, about 5 minutes. Crumble the cheese on top, cover, and cook until the cheese has melted, about 2 minutes.
