London Broil with Cherry-Balsamic Sauce

Spring 2004, The Essential EatingWell Cookbook (2004)

Your rating: None Average: 4 (29 votes)

London broil is a thicker cut of steak that benefits from the tenderizing effects of a marinade. Ours does its job and then doubles as a sauce when simmered with some shallots. Use any steak leftovers on top of a salad or in a sandwich with fresh spinach leaves.



READER'S COMMENT:
"Absolutely delicious. I started with a 1 LB brisket (it was nicer-looking than the London broil at my butcher counter) and my well-loved cast-iron grill pan. I didn't want to purchase cherry preserves just for this purpose, so instead I...

Meat was tough

The meat was still tough when cooked medium rare. I marinated the meat for 30 minutes; maybe marinate the full 8 hours or buy a more tender cut of beef. The directions work well for rare but you would need to cook the meat longer at a much lower temperature for anything more.

Easy to prepare.

Terrible recipe

This was one of the worst recipes I've ever made. The sauce was tasty, but the meat was terrible. My grill pan is ruined and the meat was very dry. It took much, much longer to cook than the recipe stated, so the whole house reeks because the "crust" burned so badly. I'm going t make more sauce just so we can use up the meat.

Easy & Tender

This was a great way to prepare a London Broil. I used my gas range with a cast iron grill and did about 10 mins each side as I like my beef on the rare side. I served it with the Panko-Crusted Asparagus Spears.
Not sure if maybe the side dish affected the flavor, but although the meat was good, it was slightly on the sweet side for me. I may try it again with cranberries or serving it with a more neutral side-dish. But still a keeper!
