Want to make the perfect Grilled London Broil? Then you need to do two things: marinate it for several hours and grill it! Whether you grill it on an outdoor grill or an indoor grill pan or insert that fits on your stovetop doesn’t really matter. So why not enjoy perfect London broil any time of year?
I know it’s a little late for barbecue season, but the weather is so nice in our part of the country (it’s 102 as I write this in my part of San Diego). So, in spite of the fact that it isn’t summer any longer, I thought we should re-christen our outdoor grill! What better way than an easy Grilled London Broil?
Marinated in my Easy Red Wine Marinade for Beef, this main dish is simple and delicious and ready in a flash for 2 hungry people (me and Charlie), with leftovers for later! Or, it would easily serve four to six!
Start with the marinade. My Easy Red Wine Marinade for Beef is infused with smashed garlic, fresh rosemary, black peppercorns, plus more flavorful ingredients, and, of course, red wine! Pour it all over your London broil and refrigerate it for 4 to 6 hours. Then, remove it from the refrigerator for 30 minutes before placing on a pre-heated outdoor barbecue grill.
So, how long do you cook London Broil on the grill? Grill it over high heat for 5 to 6 minutes and then flip it over. Cook it for another 5 to 6 minutes for medium rare – perfectly grilled flank steak!
Remove it from the grill, cover it with aluminum foil and allow it to rest for 5 minutes. Do you know how to slice London Broil? Slice it against the grain into moderate slices (about a quarter-inch thick). This technique makes every bite tender and delicious!
We served it with grilled zucchini and crusty French bread. Yum! Plus, we have plenty of leftovers for other meals.
While this Grilled London Broil recipe is easy, it is not something you can make at the last minute. Because London Broil, aka flank steak, is a tougher cut of meat, the key to this flavorful, delicious, juicy and tender main course is marinating it for a minimum of 4 hours.
Whether it’s spring, summer, fall or winter, you can enjoy London broil any time of year!
