Inside Cooking Ep 50: London Broil

London Broil refers to meat that marinates and then sears or broils at high heat. Making shallow cuts on each side of the meat helps it cook up just right and lets the flavor of the marinade really get into the meat. The result is juicy and flavorful.

  • 1 (2-lb.) London broil top-round steak
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 c. extra-virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
