  • One large Portobello mushroom – washed and patted dry
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp liquid smoke
  • sea salt to taste

Instructions

  1. In a bowl that is large enough to marinate the mushroom slices combine the liquid smoke, maple syrup, salt, and pepper.
  2. Cut the mushroom into thin strips, no more than a 1/4 of an inch thick, and marinate both sides in the liquid mixture. At least 15 minutes per side.
  3. Heat the oil in a medium skillet and cook the mushrooms for 3 minutes, flip and cook for 3 more minutes. They should be browned and the edges should look crispy.
