Teriyaki London Broil with Garlic Herb Butter
When london broil goes on sale, it goes without saying, I’ll be bringing it home for dinner. It’s like cooking one large steak for the whole family. It can be placed into a marinade and chilled, so it’s ready to cook when we’re ready to eat. I make this same recipe three ways depending on the day, weather and available hands-on time I can spare. The cooking time is basically the same but, the technique will vary just a bit.
Helpful Tips for Making London Broil
- London broil, also known as top round, is a lean cut of beef and can turn into shoe leather easily if it’s over cooked. For the best result, I recommend cooking it no further than medium, preferably medium-rare or to an internal temperature of 130-135°F. See more tips for determining doneness on beef it’s what’s for dinner.
- When choosing london broil, look for uniform thickness for the most even cooking.
- The marinade is flavorful and should be given enough time to work it’s magic. Marinate for at least 4 hours or overnight for the full impact.
- When cooking, try not to move the beef around too much. Start with a hot grill pan, medium-high heat grill or in the oven set to broil. When grilling, you can move the london broil to a cooler indirect heat spot, if it’s cooking too fast for your liking.
- Cooking Temperature Guide:
Rare: 125 degrees F + 3 minute rest off the heat Medium-Rare: 130 to 135 degrees F Medium: 135 to 140 degrees F Medium-Well: 140 to 150 degrees F Well-Done: 155 degrees F
- Allow ample rest time before slicing across the grain for serving. Remember, the temperature will continue to rise a bit while it rests.
