Summer is quickly approaching and that means we've been outside grilling! I'm pretty sure that there was no spring this year. We went from cold, crappy weather to blazing hot in about a span of a week. So it's been pretty warm for the past month. I am excited about that though because I love grilling for dinner!
Grilling is great because there is little clean up. I often thaw a piece of meat in the refrigerator, marinate it over night, and then throw it on the grill the next day. This Grilled London Broil was a snap to make. The only thing I have to caution you about is to try and get a piece of meat that is of even thickness throughout. Whenever one side is thick and the other is thin it's really hard to grill it.
London Broil isn't the most tender cut of meat but it's one that does well in a marinade and then cooked on the grill. I made a simple marinade of olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic, and Adams The Great Steak of Texas Seasoning. I mixed the ingredients together in a baggie and then put the London Broil in it and let it marinate over night.
When it was time to grill the steak we preheated our gas grill to medium high heat and then cooked the meat. It's important to only turn steak once when it's on the grill. We let the London Broil cook on one side for 3-5 minutes then flipped it and let it continue cooking until the temperature in the middle of the steak read 125 degrees.
It's also important to let a steak rest for 5 minutes before cutting it so that the juices do not all run out of the meat. The meat will also continue to cook during this period of time so I pull the beef off at 125 and it usually comes to 130 or 135 degrees by the time I cut it. Make sure you slice the London Broil against the grain.
The London Broil was juicy and so flavorful. The marinade was bold and had a lot of flavor. I could taste the black pepper, salt, and garlic along with a few more exotic flavors. We served it with grilled baked potatoes for the perfect summer meal.
- 2 lb. London Broil
- ¼ c. olive oil
- 3 T. red wine vinegar
- 3 T. water
- 3 T. Adams The Great Steak of Texas seasoning

- Add the London Broil to the baggie, seal it, and marinate over night.
- When ready to cook heat a has grill to medium high heat. Remove the London Broil from the marinade and put it on the grill. Cook for 3-5 minutes then flip it over.
- Continue cooking for 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness. Check the temperature and remove the steak when the internal temperature has reached 125-130 degrees.
- Allow the beef to rest for 5 minutes then slice it against the grain.
