This is a delicious mock on pulled pork sandwiches, perfect for vegetarians.

  • 5 Portobello mushrooms (thinly sliced)
  • 8 brown mushrooms (thinly sliced)
  • cilantro (handful, chopped)
  • parsely (handful, chopped)
  • 1/3 feta (crumbled)
  • 2 shallots (finely chopped)
  • olive oil (drizzle)
  • 2 tsp white wine vinegar
  • salt and pepper (to taste)

BBQ Sauce-your choice about 1 1/2c

  • 4 hoagie rolls
  1. Saute sliced mushroom in a little bit of olive oil until browned nicely.   Add BBQ sauce and mix well.  Let simmer until sauce is coating the mushrooms and not soggy for your sandwich.  

    In a small bowl mix the cilantro, parsley, feta, shallots, olive oil, vinegar and salt and pepper.   This is the topping for the sandwich.

    Warm the buns and fill with the mushroom mixture.

    Top with the cilantro mixture.

Recipe was adapted from Artful Desperado blog. The original recipe has a homemade barbecue sauce.

Use a big pan for the mushrooms so they do not get soggy.

I used Marshalls Haute Sauce-Smoked Habanero Barbecue which was delicious.
