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.

  1. Combine everything except the meat in a large plastic bag. Add the meat and close well. Marinate overnight, or at least for a few hours.
  2. Roast meat, covered, for 30 minutes per pound of meat at 400F, or until meat is tender.
  3. I often let it cool, cut it, and reheat it, but it is delicious any way.
  4. In the original recipe they recommend broiling the meat for 5 to 10 minutes per side before roasting, but I must admit that I have never bothered to do so and it is still delicious each time.

To the person saying London Broils is made from flank steak,I was a butcher for several years,we cut top round for London Broil,flank is a totally different cut of meat. I hope this helps people understand they are totally different cuts of meat.

What a disappointment. The cooking time is so far off. If the recipe is followed to a T you will end up with an overcooked, dry piece of meat. I doubled this recipe for New Years Eve and it was the worst meal I have made in a long while. The meat was completely inedible, although the cooked marinade was pretty and quite good. I wish I had followed my instincts and cooked it for far less time. AND PLEASE DO brown the meat first, don't skip that step as suggested by the recipe.

Really enjoyed the recipe. The marinade made it delicious. I suppose it does make a well done meat, so can probably cut down the cooking time.
