Pulled Shiitake Mushroom BBQ

pulled mushroom sandwich

Pulled "Pork" Straight from Glue & Glitter | Serves: 2 sandwiches | Time: ~40 min


1 cups store bought vegan #BBQ sauce (sometimes sauce has anchovies)

10 oz shiitake #mushrooms

10 oz baby Portobello mushrooms

1 tbsp EVO

1 small white or yellow onion, finely diced

S&P, to taste

2 hamburger buns


Thinly slice the mushrooms. They should look shredded. Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Depending on the size of the pan, you may need to cook the mushrooms and onions in two batches. When the oil is hot, add the mushrooms and onions and stir frequently until the mushrooms lose their water and the onions become translucent and soft, approximately 5 to 7 minutes.

Turn up the heat to medium-high and add salt and pepper to taste. Cook until the onions caramelize and the edges of the mushrooms begin to crisp up, approximately 5 minutes.

When the mushrooms and onions are done cooking, add the BBQ sauce to the pan and stir until the mushrooms are completely coated in the sauce. Bring the mixture to a boil on medium heat and then reduce the heat to a low simmer. Cook for 15 minutes, stirring frequently, until the sauce is thick and sticky.

Serve the mushrooms on the buns and add toppings of choice. I threw together a carrot slaw and ate a side of carrot salad. I had a lot of carrots on hand. I also put some kale on. Good to have greens, and I had a small bag of kale leaves.
