Mushroom Sandwich


Enjoy this meat-free pulled-pork sandwich twist with grilled mushrooms of your choice, shredded and mixed in BBQ sauce, served on brioche buns with crunchy vinegar slaw.

Barbecue Pulled Mushroom Sandwich

After a holiday visit to Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York, we've been craving their warm buns stuffed with roasted Maitake mushrooms. After a quick search for a similar recipe online, I found this yummy recipe from Martha Stewart. Although we missed the freshly steamed bao buns, this recipe brings similar flavors that really hit the spot.

  • Vegetable or canola oil for the grill
  • 2 cups cabbage (green and/or red), finely shredded
  • 1 large carrot, julienned
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tbsp mayo or Vegenaise
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • Kosher salt and ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 lbs maitake mushrooms (or shiitake)
  • 1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
  • Favorite barbecue sauce, warmed up
  • 4 brioche buns, spit in half


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high, scrub the grates, and brush them lightly with vegetable oil. In a medium bowl, combine cabbage, carrot, cilantro, mayonnaise, and vinegar, then season with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large bowl, toss the mushrooms with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Grill the mushrooms, turning occasionally, until browned and charred in spots, about 8 minutes. Transfer to a large heatproof bowl and shred into bite-sized pieces with two forks.
  3. Mix the shredded mushrooms with barbecue sauce. Toast the cut sides of the buns on the grill for about 1 minute. Spoon the mushroom mixture and slaw onto the bun bottoms, add the tops, and serve immediately.
Quick Tip: When selecting mushrooms, choose ones that are tender, pliable, and damp but not slimy. Avoid mushrooms that are dry, tough, or brittle.
