I was thrilled when Patsy said she would be willing to do a guest post for me while I was on my cruise. I thorougly enjoy Patsy's blog and we share many similar likes (in particular our love for Cooking Light!). Thank you Patsy for helping me out while I have been away enjoying my first ever "real" vacation with Grumpy in 10 years! By the way, today Grumpy and I will be on our way home!
I’m so happy to be guest blogging for my friend, Shelby, today! Shelby and I share a love of Cooking Light recipes, and looking for lighter sweet treats!
Now, I don’t cook light all of the time since I feel that you can have anything you want – IN MODERATION! So, whenever I see London broil on sale, I buy 2 of them – one to cook right away and another to freeze for another meal. I have found that it is such a simple cut of meat to cook and the leftovers can be used in so many different ways.
I’ve prepared it so many different ways, but often fall back on a simple seasoning blend I picked up from O & Co. a few months back. Recently, I needed some new inspiration so I asked the folks on Facebook for some new ideas. A simple marinade was suggested that had ingredients I always have on hand: olive oil, soy sauce, catsup (or ketchup – whatever you prefer to call it), Worcestershire sauce and a bit of salt & pepper. Can’t get much simpler than that, right?
I tossed it into a gallon freezer bag and allowed it to marinate for about an hour and half – 2 hours is recommended. This time with the weather being warm, I tossed it on the grill and let it cook on each side for about 8 minutes. You don’t want to overcook this cut of meat or it will become tough. You do want it to be pink in the middle and it will be tender and juicy.
