London Broil

Another recipe that shows the battle scars of my kitchen.
This was the first steak recipe I learned to make and in the 12 years I have been making it (please don't do the math as to how old that makes me) I have never had someone not absolutely love it!  With Spring having just arrived, it was time to start up the grill.  This is one of those recipes that you typically have most of the ingredients on hand already and appears to be a gourmet meal on a meat-n-three budget.  For all you red meat eaters out there....ENJOY!!!

London Broil
1 flank steak
3/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

Combine marinade ingredients.
I usually make another batch of the marinade to pour over the meat after it has been carved.
Marinade the steak for at least an hour, but you can do it overnight if you have the time.  I have found if I am pushed for time, it is best to poke holes in the steak to help the marinade seep into the meat more.

Grill steaks for 7 minutes per side over medium high heat for a medium rare steak.  Times may vary depending on the thickness of the steak.

Remove meat from grill and let rest for at least 10 minutes.
Carve at an angle against the grain of the meat.


Serve with the additional marinade on the side or poured over the sliced steak.

We served this with proscuttio wrapped asparagus..

Trim the tough ends off the asparagus and wrap in proscuttio.
Grill for about 10 minutes or until the asparagus is to the desired doneness.

Pin It!
