  1. I was not thrilled with the end result. The sauce was not that tasty and was very watery. I would definitely not waste my time making this recipe again.
  2. Perhaps it was the top round the store sold me as being for London Broil, but my meat was as tough as shoe leather and I cut it thin against the grain. We ate it, but we wouldn't make it again.
  3. Just fantastic. This is, hands down, the best London Broil recipe I've ever used. Tender, flavorful, absolutely delicious. The mushroom, garlic and wine flavors work together and fully develop during marinating, making for an extraordinarily succulent cut of beef. The reduced sauce is perfect over not only the beef, but also mashed potatoes or rice. Yum!
  4. It was raining so this recipe was perfect! I didn't have a full 2 cups of red wine so I added beef stock to the marinade. This was so excellent with steamed basmatic rice & steamed asparagus.
  5. I don't know why this recipe doesn't have more reviews it's FANTASTIC! I had to adjust a few things because I didn't have some things in the fridge and didn't have time to go out and buy. I used dry parsley, tomato paste and button muchrooms. I wasn't very sure of the flavors while marinating but after the sauce was reduced I was impressed! My family loved this one and asked me to make it again! I only had a taste because I'm on a strict diet but it was so full of flavor! It's great served with homemade mashed potatoes and to pour the sauce over them! Thank you!


I live in Las Vegas. I was lucky enough to run into Recipezaar around Nov. 2000 and got hooked quickly. I am a cookbook collector and have been collecting recipes for as long as I can remember. My DH had to build in shelves for all my cookbooks! I like to dabble with OAMC and for a few years hosted the Budget/OAMC forum with some great people over there. Even though I don't work in the forum any longer I've set up a lot of cookbooks for the purpose of OAMC and stretching food that might be helpful. Please feel free to check them out! I go on food jags and cooking jags! Please come say hi to me and chat on facebook. I currently host a blog for saving money through finding deals and coupons if you are interested. Most of the time I try to cook and have a good dinner on the table but I'll be honest enough to say there is still fast food occasionally in the budget! I have had such wonderful support here whenever I need it. Thank you all for being here! Just a quick note on how I rate recipes: ? 5 stars - This recipe is perfect. (My DH is truly a critic and doesn't give 5's unless it's amazing) I would recommend it to others and would definitely make again. ? 4 stars - This recipe was good but I would change something in it next time. ? 3 stars - This is a recipe I would not make again but it was OK ? 2 stars - This recipe I would not make again and we didn't like it at all ? 1 star - This recipes did not work out/taste was unappealing and wouldn't make again
