Because I only get meats that are "natural" (not fed growth hormones or antibiotics) my menus are planned around what the grocery store had available, not what sounds good. I found myself with a really nice piece of meat labeled "London Broil" and it looked great but I didn't know what to do with it.
After doing a little internet research, I found that London Broil actually refers more to the way the meat is cooked, rather than the cut of meat. Who knew? I also found the following recipe and everyone loved it, so I thought I'd share it with you.
1/2 Cup salad oil (I didn't have a clue what salad oil was so I used olive oil. LOL - it worked)
1/4 Cup lemon juice
1 teaspoon each - salt, marjoram, thyme
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 minced garlic clove
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup fresh parsley (I used 1 teaspoon dried)
Mix it together, pour into Ziploc bag with the meat and rotate the meat every few hours. The recipe suggested marinating for 6 hours but Hubby ended up having to work the evening I'd originally planned on fixing this. It marinaded twenty-four hours and none of the flavors were too strong.
Preheat broiler, place meat in oven on rack that is 3" below the broiler. Broil for 8 minutes on each side for rare. I cooked one piece that way for Hubby and Kidlet, then fixed a second piece for myself which I cooked on each side for a little over 10 minutes. Both pieces were very tender and tasted yummy!!!
Only 1 more "get up" for this week. Hope it's a great day for everyone!!
Peace and love,
