Marinaded London Broil

London Broil

Since I am in London this week I thought a recipe for London broil would be very appropriate!

It’s June and that means it must be summer right?  Before I left for London it seemed like Portland couldn’t quite make up its mind – rain, sun, rain, sun!  Regardless of the weather we have fired up the BBQ and it is open for the season!

Our favorite day to grill is Sunday.  I put something in to marinade Saturday night and it’s ready to grill as soon as we get home from church on Sunday and everyone is starving and ready to eat.  I think it has to do with that song “Saturday is a special day, it’s the day we get ready for Sunday” that I use to sing all the time as a kid and with my kids when they were little.  I like to get as much of the Sunday meal done ahead of time as possible!

It really doesn’t get much easier than this recipe. I guess you could just throw the meat on the grill barenaked and that would be easier but I think a London Broil is better if you marinade it and really how much effort does it take to mix together a can of coke and some teriyaki sauce.  Yep – that’s it.  The recipe only has three ingredients total!!

London Broil seems to go on sale a lot around here – Albertsons has it for $1.99 a pound quite often which makes it even more delicious!!

I marinaded it about 24 hours and it was nice and tender and juicy.  Our grillmaster, Jim, did a great job of grilling it to just the right doneness! (is that a word??)

    We eat London broil frequently. Its fairly inexpensive and it is great on the grill. The next day it makes the best roast beef sandwiches!
    Looking forward to try this!

    Thanks for the post! London Broil went on sale – so I figured, why not try something different? I have never made it before. I don’t eat meat and I often feel for my husband because he loves a good slice of beef every now and again. This was so easy to make. He was initially skeptical watching me pour coke over the meat. The next day I invited my M-I-L over for dinner. The meat took about 10 minutes on the grill and only lasted 10 minutes on the table! They RAVED about the flavor and kept saying how good it was!!! Coming from my M-I-L, that is no small feat!!! I have small twins who even ate it and loved it!!! Thank you again!!! He is already asking me to make it again for an Easter get together. This one is a keeper!!
