Oftentimes, good salad dressings also make for great marinades. With this steak recipe, we bring big flavor to the grill by letting the meat bathe in our homemade balsamic dressing for a few hours prior to cooking.
- 1.5 lb London Broil
- 1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
- 2 TB stone ground Dijon mustard
- 1 TB Worcestershire sauce
- 4 garlic cloves, minced (or less depending on your love of garlic!)
- salt and pepper to taste
In a bowl, combine Balsamic vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic and salt and pepper. Place London Broil in a zip lock bag. Pour marinade into bag, making sure to coat and massage the steak with marinade. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight and/or all day.
Preheat broiler/oven to 450 degrees. Using tongs, pull steak out of ziplock bag and place on broiler rack. Spoon over about 2 tablespoons of marinade over steak. Place in oven a cook for approximately 5-7 minutes per side (for a 1 inch steak) for medium. Add more time for a thicker steak or if you like it more well done (I recommend medium rare – medium for most tender). Once steak is done cooking, let rest on cutting board for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Make sure to slice against the grain.
Simply Roasted Tomatoes and Asparagus
- handful of asparagus, trimmed and rinsed
- plum tomatoes, halved
- salt and pepper
- olive oil
- basil, chopped finely (optional)
Preheat broiler/oven to 450 degrees. Place vegetables on a baking sheet (use aluminum foil to line the pan for easier cleanup). Drizzle or spray olive oil over vegetables, sprinkle salt and pepper and gently toss asparagus. If using, sprinkle tops of tomatoes with basil.
Cook for about 15 minutes under broiler or until soft and slightly browned.
