London Broil With Soy Citrus Mayonnaise

"This recipe is from July 2005 Gourmet magazine. The most important part of this recipe is the resting part. Do not cut into this beautiful piece of meat until you have let it rest for the full 15 minutes. It will be worth the wait...I promise."

    We made this tonight with brussels sprouts. The combination of soy and citrus was amazing! We prefer it bloody rare, and I also added the pan drippings from the meat and though the sauce was not white like the picture it probably had more of a kick. Awesome, thanks for posting Sandy! The leftovers will make awesome wraps......

    This was sooo tangy and juicy and delicious. The fresh citrus flavor livened things up and was the perfect combination with the soy sauce. I prepared this one night when we had had a friend over and he ate so much of it I was worried he would make himself ill. Definitely making this again.

    I will never make London broil another way again. This was OUTSTANDING and the sauce was just out of this world. I followed the instructions to the letter and we just about fell into our plates with love. ;o) Thank you, JoJoStar, for posting this recipe. I must have missed it in my Gourmet issue last year!
