Marinate London broil for a few hours in a baking dish with white vinegar and seasoning salt. Poke it with a fork after a while and then turn it over and poke it some more. This is a simple way to make a flavorful London broil.

  • 1/8 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • Advertisement

  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce


With a meat fork, poke holes in both sides of meat. Make a paste with garlic, seasoning blend, and red pepper; rub over both sides of meat. Place the steak in a resealable gallon-size plastic bag. Add Worcestershire sauce and close bag. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, turning once.

Remove meat; discard marinade. Broil or grill over hot coals until meat reaches the desired doneness, 4-5 minutes per side. To serve, slice thin across the grain. Yield: 4 servings.

When roasting beef (London Broil or any roast) add water to the pan and 1 tsp. instant coffee granules. Adds a good flavor to the roast and makes a delicious gravy.
