Ground Pork-Stuffed Mushrooms with Black Garlic Aioli

BBQ Glaze & Sweet Potato Mash

Cooking time

25 minutes




970 /serving

Happy Halloween! In honour of the spooky season, let’s nod to all things dark and mysterious with black garlic. When heated slow and low, the usual cloves we know and love are transformed in shade, taste and texture (Maillard reaction, yo!). The gentle caramel, savoury, umami flavour is highlighted in the aioli that accompanies this creative dish. For the main course, you’ll stuff portobello mushroom caps with aromatic ground pork plumped up with panko, then brush them with BBQ sauce before they roast. Line each plate with sweet potato mash to stay on theme with the black and orange colour scheme.

Mise en place
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Remove the portobello stalks from the caps; roughly chop the stalks. In a large bowl, gently mix the pork, portobello stalks and panko; season with ⅔ of the spices and S&P.

Stuff & roast the mushrooms
On a lined sheet pan, arrange the portobello caps, hollow-sides up, in a single layer. Divide the pork mixture between the caps and spread to flatten. Brush the tops with ⅔ of the BBQ sauce. Transfer to the bottom rack of the oven and roast, 15 to 17 min., until the pork mixture* is cooked through. Switch the oven to broil, 2 to 3 min., until browned.

Make the mash
Peel and medium-dice the sweet potatoes. Add to the pot of boiling water and boil, 14 to 16 min., until tender. Reserving ½ cup cooking water (double for 4 portions), drain and return to the pot. Off the heat, add 2 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions) and a drizzle of oil. Mash the mixture, gradually adding the reserved cooking water until you achieve your desired consistency; season with S&P. Set aside in a warm spot.

Make the salad & serve
In a large bowl, combine the remaining BBQ sauce, mayo and lemon juice with 1 tbsp water (double for 4 portions); season with the remaining spices and S&P. Add the baby greens and toss well. Divide the mash and salad between your plates. Top the mash with the mushrooms. Serve the aioli on the side. Bon appétit!
