Portabella mushroom caps (washed and cut into 1/4 inch thick slices)
Onions (peeled, washed and cut into 1/4 inch thick slices)
Ground black pepper
Your favorite barbecue sauce
Cooked rice (See Karla's Tip below)
Put some olive oil into a pan. Add pepper. Cook one minute on low heat. Add the onions. Toss to coat. Cook, covered and stirring occasionally, until soft. Add mushrooms and barbecue sauce. Cook, covered, until they are soft - about 3 minutes. Remove cover. Stir. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Boil until the juices have evaporated to a consistency you like.
Serve over rice as a main dish.
Great spooned over grilled chicken or steak, too.
Jasmine rice cooks in 10 minutes so it's just as fast as instant rice but tastes so much better.
Jasmine rice, by the way, is a rice-ier tasting rice that is divine. It's a Thai staple so if you've eaten in a Thai restaurant, you've had Jasmine rice.
Jasmine rice is great for hurry up meals. While many feel that brown rice is healthier, brown rice can take up to 40 minutes to cook.
