Easy and quick London broil recipe

As parents, we hope to instill in our children the importance of traditions. Many of our family traditions revolve around food. For example, our Sunday evening tradition has become a London broil dinner. All my kids love this meal—which is quite a miracle—and I hope it might become a tradition in your home, too.

London broil

1 ½-2 lb. London broil

¾ cup Italian dressing

¼ cup soy sauce

¼ cup honey

Mix Italian dressing, honey and soy sauce in a large Ziploc bag. Add London broil to bag and, if possible, let it marinate for several hours in the refrigerator.

Grill on low heat 12 minutes each side (4 minutes longer per side if you like it well done, but who likes it well done?!). Can you believe that’s all it takes? Enjoy!

Tips:

  1. This is a great recipe to quickly throw together in the morning and let marinate in the refrigerator during the day. Just put the meat in the oven or grill it when you get home.
  2. If you are living a cold climate and aren’t brave enough to grill in the winter (we Chicagoans grill in the snow), then preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake the London broil on the lowest rack uncovered in a disposable pan for 1 hour.
  3. As always with red meat, let it sit after cooking for 5-10 minutes before cutting to seal in the juice.
  4. This London broil is great served with grilled asparagus and brown rice (my favorite is Trader Joe’s frozen brown rice)
