Creamy coconut milk with diced tomatoes and a special spice blend along with portabella mushrooms create this magical one-pan vegetarian dish called Brazilian Portabellas that will have you coming back for more.

This Brazilian Portabellas recipe takes about half an hour to make.  All you need are some simple, wholesome ingredients and one skillet.  You start by taking clean mushrooms and seasoning them with a blend of cumin, cayenne, turmeric, coriander, ground chipotle, and a little salt.  This special spice blend has a little bit of kick to it.

After slightly cooking the seasoned mushrooms, it’s time to move on to the aromatics.  Saute diced onion, garlic, and ginger for a couple of minutes.  I don’t worry about the little brown bits in the pan because I use my Hammer Stahl 4 Quart Deep Sauté Pan which cleans up very nicely.

After a few minutes, add a can of fire roasted petite diced tomatoes and cook for a few more minutes, then add a can of coconut milk.  Return the portabellas for a couple of minutes and spoon some of that creamy, tomato-y goodness on top.

Serve this on top of some cooked rice, mashed potatoes, or cauliflower (riced or mashed).  You could also serve it alongside broccoli or a side salad.

About Hammer Stahl

Hammer Stahl is an American company that can trace its roots back to 1874.  It’s a premier brand of New Era, Inc, one of the oldest manufacturers of cookware in North America.

Hammer Stahl pan

The cookware is 7-ply stainless steel that is:

  • Oven safe at a high temp – There are no plastics or other materials that will degrade at high heats.
  • Heat reactive – It heats and reacts to changes in temperatures quickly.
  • Heats evenly – Its aluminum core that conducts and spreads heat throughout the pan.
  • Does not affect taste – Aluminum, copper, and cast iron cookware can leach metals into your food, affecting taste and creating potential health concerns.)
  • Easily maintained – It does not stain easily and be cleaned to regain its brand-new luster and shine.  Plus, it’s dishwasher safe!
  • Induction ready – Hammer Stahl’s 7-ply construction includes a layer of ferritic steel that makes the cookware induction-ready.
  • Stay cool handles – The handle is a combination of multiple machined parts, creating a hollow handle that will stay much cooler than a solid metal handle.  (Be sure to use an oven mitt if you use your Hammer Stahl pan in the oven!)

Hammer Stahl - quality made stainless cookware made in the United States

My favorite feature is that it is made in the United States.  In the deep South, as in Clarksville, Tennessee.  Some of their employees have been working there for 30 – 40 years!  Think about what that says about the company.

Absolutely delightful. Way too much cayenne noted so I reduced to 1/8 tsp. Added just enough spice. This will be added to our rotation thank you. I served this with cauliflower mash and asparagus.

I tripled the spices, otherwise it was seriously lacking in flavor. Once I fixed the spice ratio, this was good.
