- Place portobellos and bell peppers on a sheet pan. Brush mushrooms and bell peppers with some oil and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Broil for 5 minutes on each side, until tender. Pop the bread in the oven (you can place it right on the rack) for 5 to 7 minutes to toast.
- Slice mushrooms.

This was great. My one-year-old couldn't get enough of the chimichurri sauce--and neither could the rest of us.0 Helpful
LOVE the chimichurri sauce! I made it with out capers but it was still amazing! I had to cut up a nd freeze some skirt steak as I could only find one that was quite large. I figure this is fine and will reheat well later on with a new batch of sauce!0 Helpful
Grilled the steak & veggies. Did both steak & portobello with mozerella whips for the cheese. Son & hubby both liked. The chimicurri was great with steak & requested by hubby to save sauce recipe.0 Helpful
Did a pescetarian version of the Paleo Salad with just portabellos, peppers and tomatoes. Served with seared frozen tuna patty. Delicious!0 Helpful
These were really good. everyone liked them.0 Helpful
broiler times may need to be longer if using an electric stove and really only half of the oil is needed for the chimichurri sauce. Family loved it even the picky eater little ones.0 Helpful
