Chef Leong: Oven Roasted Portobello Mushroom with Meatball and Tomato (30 August 2009)

Simply combine and bake

I'm always looking for simple dinner recipes — because I seem to have less and less time these days — so when hungry.digital.elf posted a simple recipe using portobello mushrooms, tomatoes and mince I thought it sounded great and easy to follow so I'd give it a go. I wasn't sure what to call it so I just came up with a descriptive dish name. I wasn't sure how long I'd need to cook it for so I checked at 30 minutes at 200 degrees and then cooked another 15 minutes just to be sure and until it looked nice and brown. I think hungry.digital.elf must have put the tomato salsa on top after it was all baked while I just topped it all together and baked. I like how the mushroom goes soft and juicy. The baking dish got quite full of juices while baking which I assume mostly came from the mince. Next time I'll add heaps more spices and salt to flavour the mince. I just love the look of photographed ingredients — check out that macro shot of the spices.

Wooo looks awesome! Yeah, I've put the tomato salsa after the mushrooms were all cooked. I love this dish, simple to cook but meaty enough to satisfy my hungry tummy :)
