Marinated London Broil

    I have made this recipe twice once using the lemon juice and last night without the lemon(I forgot to buy a lemon!). I marinated the beef longer without the lemon and thought it had a much better flavor. The key to this cut of beef is to let it rest 5 to 10 minutes and to thinly slice it. My guests last night (12 of them) raved about the meal and wanted the recipe. I served it with a potato casserole and a huge tossed salad. I will make this again and again.

    Easy and good. I used a small yellow onion instead of shallot.

    Simple and easy. I didn't have shallots on hand, so just used a little more garlic and it was delish. I made this for a weeknight celebratory meal since we don't eat much red meat - less than a pound takes care of my family of four well. Will definitely make again.

    This marinade was so tasty! I used onions instead of shallots (too much work for a marinade and I used them in the side dish) and petite sirloins instead of london broil, but that was the only change. The flavors were wonderful and it tenderized the meat perfectly. Served with simple baked potatoes, with asparagus and grape tomatoes sauteed with shallots in just a dab of butter.

    Marinade is easy to make and made the steak delicious and so tender. I will make this recipe often!

    This recipe is a staple in the Summertime meal rotation: delicious!!! I substitute finely chopped onion for the shallot and usually marinade it for 2 days for the best flavor. I also slice it about 1/4 in. thick against the grain for the sake of tenderness. We all love it...even the kiddies!

    Delicious! Critical to the success of this dish is to "pierce steak with a fork" - about 400 times. This tenderizes the inherently tough cut of meat by cutting through the connective tissue. I bought a Jaccard meat tenderizer (a needler) which performs this task admirably. I used 1 tsp dried thyme instead of fresh.

    We've made this marinade three times so far. It's incredibly simple and turns out delicious every time! Will definitely keep in the regular recipe rotation -- it's a great use for an inexpensive cut of beef.

    Used white onion, dried thyme and ground oregano. Marinated 8 hours. Grilled instead of broiled and it was sooooo delicious! Served with fresh spinach from our garden, steamed french green beans, and "potato salad 101" from Cooking Light.

    I tried this recipe tonight but substituted onion and dried spices. I "scored" the London broil before marinating so the marinade would seep in. Turned out well. I would cook for a bit longer. I have a lo/hi setting on my broiler I did 7 min each side on low and it was a bit too pink for our liking. I served with roasted new potatoes (own recipe).

    Superb marinade! Loved it! Marinated over night (only b/c my hubby didn't get home till late) and it was delic! Didn't bother scraping any of the shallots or garlic off and used dried thyme since I didn't have any fresh on hand. Yum! And easy! Def a weeknight meal....I would definately pierce away as much as you can to tenderize as other reviewers have sad. Will make again!

    This was easy & delicious! I used leftovers for french dip sandwiches later in the week and it was very good!

    This was so good, every bite was as good as the first bite.

    Replaced the shallots with finely chopped white onions. Used with London broil and only marinated for about 90 minutes. A solid recipe, I will use the marinade recipe again.

    This was my first time cooking london broil, I marinated the meat for around 5 hours, and substituted dried seasonings. It was delicious! I served it with some fresh green beans and roasted red potatoes. I'm new to cooking, and this was as easy as it was great! Thank You!

    Yummy! never cooked a london broil.. nor wanted to but thawed one accidentally. Found this recipe amongst several others and it sounded good and I had most of the ingredients. I used keylime juice in place of lemon and used fresh regular and lemon thyme and no oregano (not such a fan) and I couldn't stop picking it when it came out of the oven! Even the fat was delicious; which sounds gross, I know! I too have a lo/hi broiler option and went with lo as I didn't want to cook it too much per other reviews. It was perfect for our taste~

    The flavor was great! Marinated about 7 hours. Served with sauteed zucchini & summer squash and a salad.

    Excellent flavour. Added grated ginger and chopped onion. Used flank steak and marinated for 2 days. Would make again

    Great, simple marinade - have used this recipe a couple of times this summer for grilled London broil, and it is a hit.
