London Broil: Melt in Your Mouth with Gavy Sauce

Lo

ndon Broil is commonly referred to as broiled flank steak. The term itself is typically more of a cooking method than a cut itself and became synonymous with the cut of meat as popularity grew. Typically, it is a 1 - 4 inch section of sirloin or round section and is extremely lean. London broil is best when marinated for several hours, followed by searing and then thinly sliced.


In this recipe, we'll be using a slow cooker, but you can also use a dutch oven for a faster cook. We've also included some side recipes if you'd like to try them!

Directions for brussel sprouts:

  1. Depending on the size, cut the brussel sprouts in halves or quarters and place them in a small bowl

  2. Combine the garlic, salt, pepper, and oil and stir until thoroughly coated

  3. If using an air fryer, preheat and then set the temperature for 370 for about 6-10 minutes. The doneness depends on your preference, though we do recommend some browning for crunchiness! If using a skillet, add all the sprouts and mixture to the pan and cook until crispy.

Directions for potatoes:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

  2. Place potatoes, garlic powder, black pepper, celery seed, and salt into a zip-top bag and shake to coat evenly.

  3. Pour the entire contents of the bag onto a large baking sheet and spread evenly so none overlap. Drizzle with olive oil if needed.

  4. Bake in the oven until potatoes are crisp, turning once to brown evenly, 40 to 45 minutes.


Enjoy!
