How To Broil A London Broil

The name London broil is indeed very deceptive. For one thing, this dish has nothing to do with London. It is still unclear as to why it is called a London broil, when the dish is virtually unknown in England. Whatever may be the name, the London broil is a special type of cooking beef, which are first marinated and then broiled, and served cut into thin slices, against the grain. However, this doesn’t refer to a specific cut of the meat. The broiling typically can be done in an oven broiler or on the grill. In both the cases, the meat should be placed at least three to five inches away from the heat source, and to maintain even cooking, the meat should be turned repeatedly. The specialty of London broil lies in the marinade. The marinade significantly improves the taste and the aroma of the meat. So, to ensure that the meat properly absorbs the marinade, it is better to make small cuts in the meat. Don’t scour the meat too much as the juices that keep the meat tender will flow out during the broiling. Apart from these, you have only to set the broil up and start broiling. In the article given below are various tips on how you can broil a London broil.
