Buzz on London Broil

It's a valued added steak—costing less, but delivering all the steak jazz on your dinner table. Don't be confused, it’s not a cut of beef, but rather a method of cooking which became popular from restaurant menus. Originally, the cut of meat was flank steak, but it’s common to find London Broil applied to almost any cut of beef that is very lean and less tender, often found in the market as labeled Top Round. The top secret to making a tasty London Broil is a great marinade or rub, grilled on high heat, allow it to rest a few minutes before slicing thin pieces of meat across the grain.
