Herbed London Broil

I serve this well-seasoned steak quite often. I got the recipe years ago from my stepfather. It's good whether you grill or broil the meat. I've never met a person who didn't like it. —Sharon Patnoe, Elkins, Arkansas

    This recipe is so simple and quick! I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out wonderful. My husband grilled the steak at medium heat for about 8 minutes on each side (our steak was a little over a pound). I served it with baby red potatoes and fresh asparagus. The dinner was fantastic and we will definitely be making it again and again!! Thank you Sharon for a great recipe!!

    This marinade had very good flavor. I was only able to let it sit for about an hour. I think if I had had a longer marinade I would have been about to get more flavor and tenderness into the meat. Will try it again though. I used fresh thyme and rosemary in the mix as well. Great summertime meal.

    maybe I'm not wild about london broil, but this was too lemony. not enough of the beef flavor I enjoy. after I tried it, I didn't dare serve it to my kid. My boyfriend ate a few slices, but definitely not a recipe I'd make again

    This marinade makes the best London Broil that I have ever made, although I prefer cooking the meat in my cast iron skillet. Just cook at medium high for 3 minutes on each side until well browned, and then in a 325 oven until a meat thermometer reads medium rare. (145)

    My daughter, who is not a big meat-lover, said this was the most flavorful beef she's ever had, and took seconds. Absolutely delicious!

    This far surpassed my expectations. The only change I made was to take a fork and poke the meat so the marinade would penetrate the meat. I will make this again.

    A perfect special dinner. Used an affordable cut of meat with results exceeding the quality expected. I can't wait until flank steak goes on sale again!
