The Technique

London Broil

London Broil may either refer to the beef cut or the cooking method for a Top Round Steak. Broiling the meat in the oven makes preparations quick. The key to this cut & the procedure is making certain the internal temperature falls in the rare,135 to 140 degree or medium-rare, 140 to 145 degree range for the best texture since Top Round Steak is muscular piece of meat that comes from the rump & hind leg region of the cow. How the meat is seasoned is another way to ensure a more tender bite. Marinades that feature an acid of some sort such as fresh citrus or vinegar also aide in breaking down these tougher cuts. Allow them to stand 12 to 24 hours in the refrigerator so they can fully develop properly. Approximately 30 minutes before you plan to cook the steak, place it on the countertop so the internal temperature may be reached during the procedure.

How To Make London Broil

Position one of the oven racks at least 6-inches from the heat source & make certain the Top Round Steak, once placed on the rack over the pan, clears the heating element by several inches in order to broil properly. Never place glass or ceramic dishes under the broiler element as they may shatter or crack due to the high temperature. Always use a heavy duty quarter or half sheet pan for the safest results.
