  • Olive oil

  • Pink Himalayan salt

  • Freshly ground peppercorns

  • Crushed garlic

  • Honey

  • Balsamic vinegar

  • Worcestershire sauce

  • Soy sauce

  • Red wine

  • Herbs!!! Coarsely chopped. Select one, or use them altogether: rosemary, thyme, sage, parsley

  • Optional: Mustard


The marinade

  • The most important part of the London broil is the marinade.

  • This will infuse the meat with flavor, and will help create that crisp crusty top that is a pleasure to bite.

  • Moreover, it will also bring the aesthetics into play with an herbal look and a fragrant finish.

  • To make the best marinade, put together the following delicious ingredients. 

  • Ground the ingredients together to form a thick paste.

  • This is where the mustard comes in handy.

  • It really helps to blend everything together and makes the marinade really thick.

  • Let the meat marinade for up to an entire day inside a ZipLoc bag, or in a marinating container.

The Steak

  • The meat part is easy. Once you finish marinating the steak, remove it with the marinade still dripping with the oil mix, and place on the grill.

  • The grill should show glowing coals.

  • The hotter the surface, the higher the chance of “flash crisp” the steak on both sides while still not overcooking the meat.

  • Cook for around 7 minutes on each side, or until the steak reaches the universal internal temperature for medium-rare steak: 135 degrees.

  • The secret to the presentation of this steak is to remove it from the grill as soon as it reaches temperature.

  • Then, cut into slices by slicing against the grain.

  • The end result is a colorful, fragrant medium-rare meat slices ready to be devoured.

  • In order to add more flavor, and crispier crust at the top, make sure that the marinade goes on heavily on the steak.

  • Mop on thicker the layers of marinade, using a BBQ mop or a brush.

  • The thicker the paste, the better it is for the steak.

  • To ensure crispness, be sure to add the herbs and peppercorns to the olive oil marinade.

Grilled London Broil Side Dishes

  • Barbecue London broil, as you can see, is not a fancy, or expensive meal.

  • However, you can certainly make it into a very special meal by pairing it wisely with foods and side dishes that do not detour the attention from the focal point of the steak dinner, which is the London broil.
