I love grilled or broiled portobellos, but this recipe was only mediocre and a lot of work. I used the food processor to speed things up, but note the one hour total cooking time. Definitely not a meal by itself.

Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes. Uncover and increase heat to medium-high; cook 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates. Stir in olives, rind, and pepper.
