How to make the perfect London Broil


Overnight marinade + grill = delicious London Broil

London Broil with green onions

Think making the perfect London Broil is just too hard to even try? Think again. Here’s how to do it from our friends at Cattlemen’s Beef Board & National Cattlemen’s Beef Association:

Total Recipe Time:  35 minutes
Marinade Time:  6 hours or overnight
Makes 6 to 8 servings

1 beef Top Round Steak, cut 1-1/2 inches thick (about 3 pounds)

1/2 cup fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons minced green onions
3 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger (optional)
3 large cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef steak and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

Remove steak; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 20 to 23 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, times remain the same) for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Do not overcook. Remove; let stand 10 minutes. Carve into thin slices.

To broil, place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 27 to 29 minutes for medium rare doneness, turning once.
