Grilled Portobello Burger with Balsamic flavor Recipe Video

Portabella mushrooms are surprisingly hearty and satisfying. You might not think that a mushroom would have enough sticking power to cut it as a meal, but I must say, the Portabella mushrooms certainly do. These burgers are a nice change from your everyday meaty burgers, and I find that they do a great job at satisfying both my vegetarian and meat-eating friends!
