London Broil

I love steak but unfortunately, my favorite steak is filet mignon, which is not in our monthly grocery budget. To compromise, I found a great recipe for London Broil. This recipe takes London Broil, a typically tough, yet inexpensive, cut of meat, and makes it very flavorful and tender. I paired the London broil with butter and parmeasan green beans and all-natural, organic couscous (from Whole Foods).

London Broil
2 pounds london broil steak, 1 1/2 inches thick
1 medium onion, chopped
1/2 cup cooking oil
1/3 cup ketchup
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon sweet pickle relish
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon dijon mustard
salt and pepper

Pierce steak with a fork. Place meat in plastic ziploc bag and set in deep bowl. In a skillet over medium heat, cook onion in oil until tender; remove from heat. Add the remaining ingredients, mix well and cool. Pour marinade over meat, seal bag and let marinade in the fridge for six to 24 hours, turning occasionally. When ready to grill, remove the meat, saving the marinade. Transfer meat to grill, brush with marinade and grill for 10 to 12 minutes on each side. To serve, thinly slice across the grain.
