This Summer, prepare a budget-friendly London Broil that is super tender and flavorful – the perfect meal for a crowd! Marinate a Top Round Steak or Flank Steak for 8+ hours or overnight to soften these tough cuts of meat. In addition, scoring the meat will ensure excellent flavor by allowing more of the marinade to penetrate.
Marinated & Grilled London Broil
Adapted from Simply Recipes and Spicy Southern Kitchen
3 pounds of Top Round Steak or Flank Steak (also known as London Broil)
1/3 cup Olive Oil
2 tablespoons Balsamic Vinegar
juice of one lime
1/4 cup Soy Sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
2 cloves Minced Garlic
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning Blend
1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
Directions: Start by scoring meat with a sharp knife – go about 1/4 inch deep in a diagonal cross pattern and be sure to score both sides of meat. Whisk together ingredients for marinade. Pour over meat in a shallow dish, or place meat and marinade in a freezer bag. Chill in marinade for 8 hours or overnight. Before grilling, let meat come to room temperature. Heat grill to medium high heat. Gently shake off excess marinade and place meat on grill for about 8-10 minutes on each side until desired doneness (I like to add a little fresh cracked pepper on top while grilling). Pull meat off grill and let rest for 10 minutes and then slice. Serves about 9 people.
This was the first time that my attempt at cooking London Broil was a huge success and it was a big hit at a family gathering. I also made these easy Foil Packet Potatoes. I diced up the leftover meat and sautéed with onion and bell peppers which made for great tasting tacos the next day.
