The secrets to a great London broil are a flavorful marinade and being sliced thinly against the grain. Leftover London broil makes great cold roast beef sandwiches. This is also great served with some homemade brown gravy.
Makes 6 Portions of London Broil
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 4 cloves crushed garlic
- 1 tsp dried rosemary
- 2 lb boneless top round "London Broil" steak, about 2-inches thick
- 1 tbsp freshly ground black pepper
- salt as needed
Turn broil on high. Remove the London broil from the marinade and pat dry. Salt generously, and rub in the freshly ground black pepper, on both sides. Place on a broiler pan, or other oven-safe pan. Broil about 8 inches under the flame for approximately 6-7 minutes per side for medium rare - internal temp of 130 degrees F.
Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil; let rest for 10 minutes. To serve, cut against the grain into very thin slices. Serve hot, topped with any juices from the plate on which it rested.
