London Broil

I really like London Broil… I had never had it until my husband made it when I was first married.... it’s been a family favorite ever since. What many people don’t realize that London Broil is not a cut of meat.. it’s a cooking method.

It is traditionally marinated for anywhere from 6 hours to 24 hours… a number of marinades are popular…

As for the cuts of meat that lend themselves well to this… I use a beef round (top round steak)… most butchers label it “for London Broil”…. I like it about 2 inches thick.

I have some tips …


Turn the meat at least once …preferably a few times while it’s marinating.

Marinate at least 6 hours… overnight is best.

You can make this on the grill or under the broiler… figure about 5-7 minutes a side for rare meat… use a meat thermometer to best test if it is cooked to the desired doneness.

Slice it across the grain in to thin strips.

Leftovers make great sandwiches…

Marinade suggestions:

Balsamic Vinegar Marinade for London Broil

Spicy Brown Mustard Marinade for London Broil

Marsala Wine Marinade for London Broil

Serve with rice or potatoes and a vegetable or salad… a truly easy to make meal!

We used to eat a lot of London Broil, as we were big beef eaters at one time. Haven't had it in ages since I cut back on beef. It was so good, and I miss it.
