London Broil

Terry and I had planned to have tri-tip on a recent Sunday. It was on sale at Sprouts for $3.99 a pound. But when I got there the packages were labeled “untrimmed” and there was a lot of fat on the meat. I picked up a London Broil instead. Terry was quite happy with that.

London BroilI found a recipe on myrecipes.com for London Broil that had an interesting marinade that included lemon juice, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and soy sauce. I followed that formula and added a splash of orange juice. To that I added a creole spice blend that I found on a recipe blog for an entirely unrelated dish: paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, cayenne, oregano, thyme, and salt, which I omitted.

I marinated the steak for a good four hours and broiled it until the internal temperature reached 148, about fifteen minutes. It came out a bit rare for my taste, but it was right in Terry’s wheel house. And she absolutely loved the flavor.

I love it when I can make a meal that my wife really loves.
