Italian London Broil


This is a great Italian London Broil recipe to make on the grill. This steak is rubbed with herbs and spices, grilled, sliced and topped with fresh Roma tomatoes, onions and baby portabella mushrooms.

London broil is actually a cooking method that has evolved into a name of a cut of beef. It was once simply a flank steak quickly pan fried to medium rare and thinly sliced. If cooked too long the meat will become tough and inedible. The method has changed to include marinating, grilling and broiling but should still only be cooked for about two to three minutes on each side to retain it’s tenderness.

When I make this Italian London Broil recipe I usually prepare the tomato mixture on the side and top the steak just before serving. Also remember that London broil usually refers to flank steak but can end up being top round or sirloin tip so ask your butcher ahead of time which cut of meat he’s using. I’ve always preferred the flank steak.
