A London Broil is a cut of steak sometimes labeled as "top round steak." There are three important steps to successfully preparing a London broil. The first is the meat needs to marinate for several hours (preferably overnight). This recipe uses a lot of lemon and garlic to achieve maximum flavor. Next, cook the meat over high heat. This will give the meat a crisp and charred crust while sealing in the juices. Once off the heat, let the meat rest. Lastly, cut the steak across the grain which means in the opposite direction of the meat fibers. Each slice will be tender and moist. Follow these steps and you will have an amazing lemon-garlic London broil dinner.
2 1/2 pounds London Broil
cup lemon juice
cup olive oil
3 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
Place the meat in a container or a resealable bag (I like a Zip-loc)
In a food processor, puree the remaining ingredients
Rice is a nice alternative to potatoes. Sometimes nothing is yummier than a side of Uncle Ben’s Long Grain & Wild Rice.
We eat a lot of broccoli, but cooked carrots are also a family favorite (and why wouldn’t they be? I cook them in butter!)
Pre-heat your oven to 350°
Cook until nice and soft, for approximately 1 hour
