So I’m all in favor of Meatless Mondays. I do like meat and there’s NO way I could ever be a complete vegetarian, but every so often I like to slip a meatless meal into the rotation. It’s funny because the other day I made this with the full intention of tricking the kids into thinking they were eating real meat, but they caught me. And ate the tacos anyways. Full disclosure, I realize that some people hate mushrooms, but I feel like cooking them with enough butter and some balsamic vinegar and you really don’t realize you are eating mushrooms with this recipe. And I served the tacos with a little coleslaw and we were all members of the clean plate club!
Start by sauteing onions in 2 Tablespoons butter over medium heat for about 5 minutes.
Add 2 Tablespoons more butter, minced garlic and diced portabella mushrooms. Continue to saute over medium heat for about 5-7 minutes.
As the mushrooms cook down, they will become juicy. Add 2 Tablespoons balsamic vinegar (more or less depending on your preference).
Lower the heat to low and continue to cook until the mushrooms absorb all the liquid (about 10-15 minutes).
Serve in tortillas with shredded cheese and coleslaw. Enjoy!
