Bourbon Steak Portobellos

I love this grilled steak and mushroom dish because it's easy and oh so pretty on the plate. If you like a little spice, add fresh jalapeno pepper to the peppers. —Kathy Vanderburg, Niceville, Florida
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. + marinating Grill: 25 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup bourbon
  • 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
  • 1 beef top sirloin steak (3/4 inch thick and 1 pound)
  • 4 large portobello mushrooms
  • 1/2 large sweet red pepper, cut into strips
  • 1/2 large sweet yellow pepper, cut into strips
  • 1/2 large sweet onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 3/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese


  • In a small bowl, combine the soy sauce, bourbon and brown sugar; stir until sugar is dissolved. Pour 1/3 cup into a shallow dish; add steak. Turn; cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Remove and discard stems and gills from mushrooms. Place mushrooms in a shallow dish; brush both sides with remaining marinade; cover and let stand at room temperature for 1 hour.
  • In a small bowl, combine the peppers, onion, oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper; toss to coat. Spread in a single layer on a grilling grid; place on a grill rack. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 5-8 minutes or until crisp-tender. Cover and keep warm.
  • Sprinkle steak with remaining salt and pepper. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat for 8-10 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 135° for medium-rare, 140° for medium and medium-well, 145°.
  • Meanwhile, grill mushrooms, covered, over medium heat for 6-8 minutes or until tender, turning once. Spoon pepper mixture into mushrooms. Cut steak into slices; arrange over pepper mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Grill, covered, for 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted.
