Man That’s Cooking
- 1 ½ – 2 pounds London broil top round
- ¼ cup olive oil
- ⅓ cup soy sauce
- ¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 2 minced garlic cloves
- 1 tablespoon dry Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
In a small bowl, combine the marinade ingredients and whisk it together. If you have an immersion blender, use this instead of a whisk to better combine the marinade ingredients together.
Next use a fork or jaccard meat tenderizer to perforate the top round meat. This will help to tenderize the meat and allow for the marinade to penetrate into the meat.
Next, place the top round into a large zip seal bag or container then pour the marinade over the meat. Place the bag or container in the refrigerator and marinate it overnight.
On the next day remove the top round from the refrigerator and place it on the counter top for 30 minutes to bring it to near room temperature. Preheat the broiler to high heat or 500F and place the roast into a roasting pan or a 12 inch cast iron skillet. Broil it for 5 minutes then flip it over. If you have a thermometer, place it in and broil for another 3 – 5 minutes or until the thermometer registers 135 F.
Remove the pan and allow the beef to cool for 5 minutes. Slice the meat against the grain and enjoy.
