London Broil

I've been enjoying this recipe from my mom for over 50 years.
It is incredibly easy and good.

olive oil
black pepper
Find a glass or ceramic low pan/bowl that is approximately the same size as your meat. Add some olive oil, lemon juice (bottled is okay if you don't have fresh), several cloves minced garlic and lots of freshly ground black pepper and mix together with a table fork.

'london broil' **Add the meat, turn it over, and use the fork to repeatedly poke it to get the marinade into the meat. Turn the meat over and repeat.

Periodically repeat the process, turning the meat, and poking with the fork. You should turn the meat 3 times each cycle, so the side of the meat that was down is now up.

We've marinated as short as an hour, and as long as 4-6 hours.

GrillingPreheat the grill. Grilling time depends on the thickness of the meat, For 1 1/2" I grill 7 minutes on first side, then 7 minutes on second side (for medium rare).

To serve, slice diagonally across the grain.

** top round or .... (Grocery stores usually mark it as London Broil). The meat usually comes in a fairly large piece and is usually ~ 1 1/2 inches thick but can be thicker or thinner. We cut the meat in half and freeze. The recipe works well with frozen meat - just let it thaw overnight in the fridge.
