Whenever a friend of mine from college comes to visit, we always stay in one night and cook a fabulous meal for ourselves. This was the product of one of our cooking extravaganzas. The sauce is absolutely fabulous, so make sure you have some bread on hand to soak it all up, or serve with mashed potatoes and use it as a gravy.
I got this London broil recipe from a cookbook produced by a local chapter of Amit Women ("The Making of a Meal"). These kinds of cookbooks can be gold mines, as everyone does their best to strut their stuff. In this case, the original author, Rachel Abittan, did just that, offering us a scrumptious roast recipe that has been acclaimed by many (and is incredibly easy, to boot!). Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
When I cooked this for the first time I thought I was manufacturing shoe leather - not so the steak turned out tender and very tasty. We can buy "Maui Ribs" already in the marinade but I prefer this recipe. Although there is sugar & vinegar in the marinade it does not come through as sweet & sour. Brown Sugar substitute worked well. I don't know why it's called Maui Steak! So I had a wing steak in the freezer made the marinade and let the steak sit in it for 2 days in the fridge - result lovely tasty tender steak
This classic beef bourguignon is wonderful. We especially enjoy it on a fall or winter day. I typically reduce a significant portion of the cooking time by using the pressure cooker. Each pressure cooker is different, so you would need to refer to your pressure cooker instructions to adjust cooking time.

My gourmet cooking teacher in college was the dietitian for Greenview Hospital near my home. During a visit (of course, due to diabetes) I had this beef stew. Anne gave me the recipe and I had to scale it down tremendously. It is deeelish and I always requested more from the hospital kitchen.
This recipe comes from the cookbook "Texas Blossoms". In order to get the full flavor marinate overnight. We like it served plain, but it's just as good served over buttered noodles. For rare only cook about 5 minutes and 10 minutes for well done. We also like to "kick it up" a bit and sprinkle with additional crushed red pepper after serving. You can mix it up the night before and you'll have dinner cooked the next night in no time - can't get any easier or quicker than that. Cook times include marinating time.
