Oyster mushroom steak for the grill

Oyster mushroom steak for the Grill my dears, just wonderful, isn’t it? I’m really obsessed right now with finding new Barbecue Recipes to find. It can not be that many still believe that you can not reasonably grill without meat. It’s time to prove them wrong, and on the basis of mushrooms. Why actually Mushrooms and nothing else? The question is quickly answered, because the plants remain cooked and Barbecue dimensionally stable and retain a great bite. In addition, they are ideal for marinating and the shape also reminds a little of a steak. In terms of ingredients, the Mushrooms also quite in front, but more on this further down in the text. So my dear ones, fire up your Grill and look forward to this delicious steak. I’m sure one or two envious glances will come.

The first step for a successful execution of this Recipe is the selection of the right mushroom. Oyster mushrooms are best for the steak, as they have a cluster-like structure and are large enough in area to form a “steak”. Surely you are asking yourself the question, where is the best place to get large oyster mushroom clusters? I always buy them at Alnatura in the vegetable section, I always get fresh large mushroom clusters there. Otherwise, you can also order them through a local Ökokiste or through a Online shipping . Here I have discovered one, from which I have also immediately ordered once on a test basis. Sounds at least already good, is certified organic and is shipped free of shipping costs from two kilos or 35€. I will certainly report again soon about the quality.

TIP: The bigger mushroom clusters you get, the better. They then form into a great steak. However, smaller mushrooms also work, no problem!

Vegan barbecue, get out the mushrooms

The equipment is the most important thing to get the steak in shape. why? It needs weight from above. If you are the proud owner of cast iron pans, at this point congratulations. The dead weight of the pans ensures that the Mushrooms are pressed down really nicely. I use regular pans and put an extra pot in there (see video), that works great too.

Other than that, all you need are some BBQ tongs, some BBQ seasoning, salt, pepper and a wonderful marinade made from BBQ Sauce and dark beer. Those who do not like alcohol, like to use non-alcoholic beer. If you don’t like grilling the steaks, then you can just put it marinated on a baking sheet and finish it in the oven.

How healthy are actually oyster mushrooms?

If I am completely honest, that I must simply say it at this point: I am so much of enthusiastically from Mushrooms that I just let out a true rutting cry when ordering my mushroom box online(sorry to all the wild animals around here that I may have scared away with it). Oyster mushrooms are seasonless and so incredibly valuable for health, just great.

Here are the facts:

  • Very low in calories with 35 kcal per 100g
  • Highest vitamin B3 content (niacin) of all cultivated mushrooms (supports muscle and nerves)
  • Rich in B vitamins, including folic acid
  • Contains pleuran, a valuable antioxidant (protects our body cells from free radicals).
  • Contains lovatstatin, a substance that can have a positive effect on cholesterol levels
  • High caium content (beneficial for blood pressure)
  • Low in calories, fat-free and rich in healthy fiber

CONCLUSION: Oyster mushrooms are very valuable for our health and offer especially vegan living people a number of benefits. They are free of fat and carbohydrates, but still rich in valuable fiber and protein. Just 200g of the mushrooms cover a third of the recommended requirement of dietary fiber.
