London Broil is what the butchers often call the flank steak or skirt steak. These meats are usually the tougher meats with minimal fat content.

How to make london broil marinade:
- First, mix all of the ingredients together in a small bowl. I have also added in some soy sauce and some lemon juice.
- Second, get a large ziplock bag and put the london broil inside with the marinade.
- Seal and marinade for at least 4 hours. I prefer to do this overnight if possible.
How long to grill London Broil:
- The steak needs to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes so go ahead and take that out of fridge. Once they have set out, then they are ready to cook.
- First, get your grill fired up. You want the steaks to grill on medium high heat.
- Second, put the steaks on the grill. I like to get a good char on the outside while the center remains rare to medium rare.
- This does not take long at all so keep a close watch. We are using about 1″ thick London Broil so keep in mind that a thicker piece of meat will take longer to cook.
- Cook until the steak is how you like your meat cooked. Remove from grill. Making sure you cook several minutes each side of steak.
- Finally, let the steak rest on a cutting board and then cut across the grain into thin slices. This should be really easy as the steak is tender. The tender london broil will just melt in your mouth.
Note- Another option is to broil the London Broil in a broiler pan on high until the steak is how like your meat prepared.

How to know when London Broil is done?
We like using a meat thermometer to make sure our meat is done before serving. It saves me from having to cut in the meat to early to check for doneness. The exact cooking time could vary based on how thick you meat is, so I always try and have my meat thermometer available rather I am grilling or putting in the oven.
Depending on well you want your steak done, I follow these temperature readings before serving,
- For a rare(red center cut) steak – I want the temperature to be around 120-130 degrees.
- A Medium (warm red center) Rare steak – Temperature needs to be around 135 degrees.
- Medium(pink center) steak – Temperature reading about 145 degrees.
