London Broil Picture

I am a meat and potatoes kinda girl, and my hips certainly show it. As long as I can remember, I have loved red meat.

Back in the 70's, my Mom seemed to cook red meat all the time and one of her favorites to cook was London Broil. I can remember her marinating it in Wish Bone Italian Dressing for at least 2 days.

The flavor always sticks in my mind and London Broil remains one of my go-to meats. London Broil is generally affordable and is usually cut in a nice family size hunk-a-meat.

It is a tougher piece of meat, so it diffidently needs a nice long bath in a marinade. If you skip the marinading, you might just get lock jaw from chewing. Not good.

Take the time out of your day, 5 minutes tops to whip up my marinade... your meat will thank you for it.
