- 2 lbs london broil beef (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
- 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided (EVOO)
- 4 tablespoons butter, divided
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 3 carrots, cut into 1-inch slices
- 3 parsnips, cut into 1-inch slices
- 1 bay leaf
- 6 sprigs thyme
- 1⁄2 cup fresh parsley
- 1 quart beef stock
- 1 lb baby yukon gold potato, cut in half depending on size
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- prepared horseradish
- Preheat broiler. Take the steak out of the refrigerator and let it come up to room temperature.
- In the meantime, heat the EVOO, about 2 turns of the pan, and 2 tablespoons of butter in medium saucepot over medium-high heat. Once the butter is melted, add the mushrooms and cook about 5 minutes, until brown.
- Add the onion, garlic, carrots, parsnips and herbs. Cook until veggies are tender, about 4-5 minutes. Add the potatoes and 3 cups of stock plus one cup of water. Bring up to a bubble then reduce heat and simmer 20-30 minutes.
- As the liquid simmers, place the London broil on a broiler pan. Rub it with about 2 tablespoons of EVOO and season it generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
- Place the meat under the broiler about 6 inches from the flame for 10-15 minutes, flipping it over halfway through to ensure even cooking. Remove the meat from the broiler and let it rest for about 5 minutes.
- While the meat is resting, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to a small skillet over medium-high heat. Once melted, add flour and cook about 1 minute. Whisk in the remaining stock, about a cup, the add the Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard. Once thickened, add the mixture into your saucepot with the veggies.
- Ladle the veggie stew into shallow bowls. Cut the steak into thin slices and place it on top. Serve with a dollop of prepared horseradish on top and a nice hunk of crusty bread with butter on the side.
