Re: London broil, how to cook it..
I love this recipe from the Food Network website because it involves ONLY ingredients I always have on hand!! I HATE it when a yummy-looking recipe calls for a couple of ingredients I have to go out and buy just for that. Oh, and leftovers of any grilled/broiled/pan seared london broil can always be sliced thin and made into a sandwich!
5 large garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup dry red wine
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey
A 1 1/2 pound top-round London broil (about 1 1/4 inches thick)
Accompaniment: Sliced vine-ripened tomatoes
Make marinade: Mince and mash garlic to a paste with salt and in a blender blend with remaining marinade ingredients.
In a heavy-duty sealable plastic bag combine London broil with marinade. Seal bag, pressing out excess air, and put in a shallow baking dish. Marinate steak, chilled, turning occasionally, at least 4 hours and up to 24.
Bring steak to room temperature (which should take about 1 hour) before grilling. Remove steak from marinade, letting excess drip off, and grill on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals 7 to 9 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes.
Holding a knife at 45 degrees angle, cut steak across grain into thin slices and serve with tomatoes.
