Times are tough, here is a cheap and easy recipe.
Technically London Broil is a way to prepare meat, not a cut of meat but lots of supermarkets sell a cut of top round and call it London Broil.
2 lb. piece of Top Round or Flank Steak
1 container of fresh mushrooms (as many or few as you like)
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup apple juice
1/4 olive oil
1/2 tablespoon garlic, crushed
1/2 tablespoon fresh ground pepper
Juice from 1/2 a lemon
Combine all marinade items in a zip top bag. Close the bag and shake it a few times to mix all ingredients.
Add your meat to the bag.
Squish out all the air and leave to marinate overnight in fridge*, turning once.
*If you are cool like me, you can put this in your FoodSaver Marinator and marinate this in about an hour.
The meat should come out of the fridge an hour before cooking. It can just sit on your counter and come to room temperature. (Thank you, Alton Brown, for that little gem.)
Preheat oven on your Broil setting.
Broil your meat about 4 inches from the coils for about 5 minutes on each side. This is my best advice because all ovens are different. If you have ever done fillets in the oven, it’s about that long. You want it to come out medium rare. Any more done will result in a TOUGH, DRY piece of shoe leather.
I put the mushrooms in an oven proof container on a lower shelf in the left over marinade. The marinade then becomes the sauce. (Make sure the marinade comes to a boil.)
Let the meat rest on your cutting board for 10 minutes before cutting. Then thinly slice it at a 45 degree angle across the grain.
Serve this with baked potato and a nice green salad. (or whatever you like!)
