Vegan Portobello Jerky


Portobello jerky is a great alternative to beef jerky for that vegan in your life. I plan to experiment with different flavor combinations, but for now, I leave you with my spicy Asian blend.

Total Time:
10 hrs 5 mins


  • 6 ounces portobello mushrooms, stems removed, caps cut into 1/4-inch slices

  • ¼ cup soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon hot chile paste (such as sambal oelek)

  • 1 teaspoon rice vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon sesame oil


  1. Place mushroom slices in a resealable plastic bag. Whisk soy sauce, chili paste, rice vinegar, and sesame oil together in a bowl until completely blended. Pour over mushrooms, seal the bag, and refrigerate for 8 hours.

  2. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees F (120 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  3. Arrange mushroom slices on the baking sheet in such a way that they are not touching each other.

  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Flip mushroom slices using tongs and cook for 1 more hour.

  5. Remove the baking sheet from the oven and let cool completely before storing. For any larger slices that are not dry after 2 hours, crack open the oven door and let cook for 5 additional minutes or until dry.

Cook's Note:

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
