This is a recipe we've been making for our summer BBQs and that is constantly requested when we have guests over. Why? We feel that it is, without a doubt, the PERFECT side dish to a good steak. So without further ado, here's how to make this simple potato and mushroom side dish.
Step 1: What You'll Need
- one potato per person
- 1/4 onion per potato
- Two largish mushrooms per potato
- Pepper (we use a four pepper blend)
- Spices (1)
- Soft butter
- Aluminum foil
- A barbecue (duh!)
- Knife of slicer (2)
(1) We use a spice blend from a popular spice company who shall remain nameless (but whose initials are Victorian Epicure). You can make your own with chives, basil, sage, oregano and dehydrated garlic).
(2) We use a slicer from another well known kitchen products company (who shall also remain nameless but is an anagram of Prefaced Hemp).
Step 2: Cut
Step 3: Prep Your Foil
Step 4: Lay Out the Ingredients
Note that two layers should be your maximum. If you're making this dish for more than four people, make a second foil container. Also remember that the ingredients that wind up in contact with the foil will brown much more than the other ingredients. In our case, the potatoes and the mushrooms will brown. If you're adding extra layers, consider which ingredient you want browned when figuring out the layers.
Step 5: Spices
Add pepper and spices to taste. Don;t feel limited by the spices we selected. Experiment! Paprika may be good here, or dehydrated jalapeno if you're into that kind of thing.
Step 6: Roll-up the Foil
Twist up the ends of the foil.
Step 7: Cook It
The time variance is based on whether you cook at a lower or higher temp, and whether you cook on the bottom or top grill.
Step 8: Enjoy!!
