Don’t let the high price of beef get you down. There’s more ways to skin a cow than most will let on. The secret to buying and cooking a lesser grade of beef and having it taste amazing is all in the marinade. This summer, I’ve become addicted to London Broil. At only $4.99 a pound (shop the sales and stock up!) a simple marinade and a BBQ grill can make this cut of meat scrumptious! Don’t have a grill? Your oven broiler will work just as well.
I purchased this 2.75 pound London Broil a few weeks ago, tucked it into my freezer for safe keeping and when we were ready to indulge, I marinaded the cut overnight (once I de-frosted it!). The marinade is very simple and I don’t have the exact measurements. You just toss the beef into a new, clean storage baggie and add in these ingredients any which way you’d like: minced fresh garlic, dijon mustard, a touch of honey, soy sauce, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, worcestershire sauce, dried Italian seasoning, pinch of salt & pepper. Make sure all the ingredients blend and touch every sacred inch of your steak. Steak should marinate for at least a few hours, preferably overnight in the fridge. When ready to cook, either grill it over some hot coals or under your oven’s broiler. Since we’re having a rainy week, husband decided to grill our steak under the broiler. Don’t forget to add a touch of honey to your marinade as it helps in caramelizing the meat to a delicious color and texture.
And it slices so beautifully: (Note: makes a great leftover sandwich or top off a salad next day)
I made a side dish of steamed broccoli topped off with a dressing of olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, salt & pepper) and I literally threw two cut up red potatoes into our air fryer (sprayed on olive oil PAM) cooked at 375F for 20 minutes. And voila’, dinner is served. I even baked up a batch of chocolate cookies for dessert!
