Moist, tender and slightly sweet from the marinade, this juicy steak boasts wonderful flavor and oh-so-easy preparation. Serve with potatoes and a green vegetable for a complete meal. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + marinating Broil: 15 min. YIELD:4 servings

"This is my go-to recipe for steak marinade, partly because it's so easy and quick to mix up, but mainly because it's delicious. I use whiskey to make the marinade for London broil and I everyone loves it."

"I used apple cider vinegar instead of the whiskey. I also used venison steak. The meat comes out tender. My husband enjoyed the dish."

"Excellent flavor! I marinated overnight and used apple cider vinegar instead of whiskey. Although the flavor was great, my steak was a little tough. Next time I will either try a different cut of meat or grilling on low instead of broiling. The marinade is definitely a keeper though."

"This recipe was very good! I made with the apple cider instead of actual whiskey. I marinated my meat for about 10 hours and it was fantastic. I will be making this again!"
