Grilled London Broil

One of the most flavorful roasts that Tommy’s created.  The kitchen just smelled wonderful from when he started mixing the marinate.  Perfect medium rare + best steak sauce!  This recipe is going on my ”favorite” tab. 🙂

Ingredients (serves one):

  • 1/2 lb Top Round London Broil


  • 4-5 caps of mushrooms
  • 1 small onion
Marinade ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Juice of 1/3 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1.5 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons Japanese soy sauce
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Dash of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Using a small fork, pierce the meat liberally on all sides
  2. Mix marinade ingredients together, and combine with meat in a resealable plastic bag, squeezing out all the air inside the bag before sealing. Set this in refrigerator for at least 2 hours so flavors can be absorbed. Turn the bag occasionally so that the marinade gets absorbed on both sides.
  3. About 1/2 to 1 hour before you are ready to start cooking, remove the meat from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature
  4. Preheat a heavy skillet, preferably cast-iron on high heat for about 10-15 minutes. Make sure that it is as hot as it can get before cooking. Meanwhile, remove meat from marinate, making sure to get it as dry as possible (reserve the marinate for cooking veggies with). Sear the meat under the burning hot skillet for about 1.5 minutes on each side. Then, continue cooking under low heat. The amount of time is dependent on how you want your steak and how thick it is. My steak was about 1.5 inches thick. I cooked mine for about 8 minutes (about 11 minutes total including the cooking time during the searing process) and it came out perfectly medium rare. London Broil is a meat that will be very tough if overcooked, so make sure not to overdo it!
  5. Let meat rest on a plate, loosely covered by aluminum foil for about 10 minutes. We will use this time to cook our veggies
  6. Using the same skillet, add a bit of oil and cook mushrooms and onions, scraping up the brown bits in the skillet. When mushrooms and onions are almost cooked through, add in excess marinate. Cook until the sauce has reduced somewhat and is the appropriate consistency.
  7. Slice the steak thinly across the grain. Pour the mushroom and onion sauce over it and serve.
