Also known as Portabello, is the larger relative of white Agaricus and Crimini, they're excellent stuffed, grilled, in sauces and sautés. Their deep flavor and firm texture make Portabellas a great meat substitute or vegetarian entrée.
Look for mushrooms with a fresh, smooth appearance. Portabellas are best if cooked. Grilled or broiled whole they are perfect as a vegetarian burger, or sliced and sauted for salads, pizzas or pastas. Chop up and use in soups and sauces for a rich, meaty taste.
Storage and Handling
Ostrom's portabella mushrooms don't have to be used immediately. They'll stay fresh for 7-10 days if you keep them refrigerated. Store bulk mushroom in a paper bag. If you purchase Ostrom's portabella mushrooms in our shrink-wrapped package, it's a good idea to open up the top, remove the plastic wrap from packaged portabellas and cover loosely with a paper towel.
Don't forget! You do not have to wash, soak or peel portabella mushrooms. Simply wipe clean with a damp paper towel immediately before using and trim off the root.
