London Broil Steak Grilled to Perfection!

 

London Broil Steak Grilled to Perfection ~ always turns out moist, juicy and tender every time!  Making dinner alfresco can be very enjoyable!  We love to cook, but when it comes to grilling steaks, only my husband does it best!  He has it down to a science (so he thinks).  When he grills, he gets it right – no matter the size of the steak.  He can grill a London Broil Beef Steak to perfection!

Here are some of his tips on how to grill a London Broil Steak to Perfection!

First, it’s very important that you allow the meat to warm up to room temperature, at least one hour before you cook it.  It is equally important to heat your grill until extremely hot before you throw the meat onto it.

The thickness the steak is as important, it should be a good cut and at least two inches thick.  This will always guarantee, while grilling it on the BBQ, the outside of the steak may be charred but the inside will be very tender and juicy.

Also, adding butter on top of the meat while grilling is crucial to giving the meat its tender and juicy flavors. Butter makes a huge difference in taste and you will notice the difference the first time you add it to the meat.  So don’t skip it.

London Broil grilled this way always turns out perfect!  Whether you grill it outside or cook it the oven try these simple cooking tips and enjoy!

Serve a great steak with our simple Italian Tomato Salad and some bread and it’s a simple and delicious dinner!  A great wine to pair with this London Broil, is a wine with a deep red velvet color and taste, a Chianti Riserva would be a fine choice to complete an exquisite dinner with family and friends.
