I got some portobello mushrooms in my last veg box, and decided to try this recipe which had come highly recommended by my friends Jenny and Meg.

Then they are coated in pepper and seared, before being sliced and cooked in the marinade until the whole thing is a sticky, delicious mess:

The box, by Aladdin (and purchased from Amazon), can be microwaved in the morning before work and then keeps your food warm until lunchtime. It seems to work. Since I’m doing a lot of out-of-office work at the moment it’s coming in very handy.
