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 of 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 in the oven try these simple cooking tips.

Serve this great steak with our simple Italian Tomato Salad and some crusty bread, or with our homemade cheesy mini biscuits on the side 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.

And ENJOY!!

 

 

 

*You can follow along below with our step-by-step on this recipe, or just jump down to the bottom of the post for the full recipe card.

 1.  First, allow the steak to warm up! Minimum 30 minutes to 1 hour.

 2.  Heat grill outside for about 10 minutes.  Place the meat onto a dish, allow to warm up at room temperature. Lightly sprinkle both sides of the steak with salt. Once the grill is extremely hot (should be 600 degrees on the BBQ Thermometer), place the meat onto the grill.  Close the lid.

 

 

 

 

3.  Cook the steak for about 3 minutes, then open the lid and flip over the meat.  Leave the lid open.

4.  Add garlic powder and black pepper generously on top.  Place 2 tablespoons of butter on top of the meat to melt while cooking.  And cook for an additional 3 minutes.

 

 

 

 

5.  Flip over the meat again to the other side.  Sprinkle with garlic powder and black pepper again.

Add the other 2 tablespoons of butter on top.  Cook the steak for 4 minutes more.

Total time, is about 7 minutes on each side of the meat, for medium.  And about 5 minutes per side for rare.

 

 

 

 

6.  Remove the meat and allow it to sit on a cutting board for a few minutes before serving.

 

 

 

7.  Then carve the meat on a slight angle.  Slice thinly and serve immediately.

    In Step three it says to leave the lid open. Does that mean to leave it open for the remainder of the cooking?

    Excellent! I cooked for medium, 7 mins on each side. I would reduce to 6 mins next time, just to get a little more pink.

    The best London broil I have ever grilled and tasted. I enjoyed the photos, too. My husband was always the grillmaster in our family (of course!). Since he passed away, I’ve been trying to teach myself, and this recipe is a great help. Thank you.
