Ingredients
Directions

Mince the garlic to a paste with salt and in a blender blend with the salt, red wine, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and honey.

In a heavy-duty sealable plastic bag, combine London broil with marinade. Seal bag, pressing out excess air, and put in a shallow baking dish. Marinate steak, chilled, turning occasionally, at least 4 hours and up to 24.

Bring steak to room temperature before grilling. Remove steak from marinade, letting excess drip off, and grill on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals, 7 to 9 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes.

Holding a knife at a 45-degree angle, cut steak across grain into thin slices and serve with tomatoes.

We love this marinade for london broil or any other kind of beef, we have grilled and roasted many different cuts of beef with it without changing a thing! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I doubled the recipe because I had two very large steaks to marinade, and as recommended by another commenter, I reduced the remaining marinade into a sauce, which was incredible. Although I doubled the recipe, I did decrease the garlic to only 3 cloves because the hubby isn’t a huge fan, and added 1/2 teaspoon of homemade onion powder (so easy to make) to compliment the garlic. Instead of soy sauce I used Worcestershire sauce – personal preference. My initial taste test of the marinade felt like it was missing something, so I added 2 tablespoons of tomato paste and that balanced out the flavors for me. Overall a great marinade that I will continue to experiment with. Next time, I am going to try adding some stone ground mustard. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Very good, and not hard to prepare. I also added just about a tablespoon of olive oil to the marinade to help the meat from sticking to the hot grill. Typically, when I grill steaks, I will sear on very high heat, flip the meat, and turn heat to medium. This does NOT work with London Broil. Better to start medium, go about 7 minutes, then turn the meat over for another 7 minutes (depending on thickness). item not reviewed by moderator and published
First of all, this is a recipe for three people, not six. Serving 1/4 pound of meat is an appetizer. Most importantly, I should know better. You cannot subject what is a garlic puree to high heat - it turns bitter. Moreover, the soy sauce is too dominant. The combination of wine and balsamic is a great idea. Just change the garlic to powder form and add some onion. I changed from soy to Worcestershire sauce and it was very yummy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I loved this marinade, my beef was fantastic. Was able to marinade 8 hours and like the previous posted I reduced it down and brushed it on while cooking. Oh my gosh, so yummy! Definitely will use this again item not reviewed by moderator and published

Fabulous marinade recipe, better than anything I've bought in the store, including Seven Sisters. Great for any kind of grilling beef, not just London Broil. A keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Easy tasty marinade. I only had 4 hours, I will try longer next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Thank you to the reviewer who suggested reducing the leftover marinade into a sauce/glaze! It was fantastic. We had a 2.5 lb piece, cooked it 7 min per side over medium heat on a gas grill and it came out medium. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Used a 2 1/2 pound top round london broil marinated for 24 hours. I grilled it for about 10 min each side then moved it over to indirect heat to cook it through a little more. I let it rest about 10 minutes and it came out perfect, just the right amount of pink. I reduced the marinade to use as a sauce, it was strong, but good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent quick to throw together London Broil marinade! I only had 4 hours to marinade and it still tasted wonderful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is an outstanding way to cook london broil. I marinated mine for about 12 hours and it had plenty of good flavor. Be careful not to cook too long. My roast was a little over 1.5 lbs and I grilled it for 9 minutes a side. It came out more medium than medium rare - lesson learned. Otherwise, it was very tasty. Will definitely try again, just cook it a little less. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My daughter in law went in for seconds and she hardly eats anything, being 5 foot nothing and 88 pounds soak and wet. She loved it, as did the rest of the family. A definite keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This marinade far exceeded my expectations. It may have even turned me into a London broil fan! I considered it good enough to be included in my blog, and I'm rather particular about what recipes are posted there. item not reviewed by moderator and published
A new favorite! I followed the recipe exactly using a full 24 hours to marinate. Smells heavenly while grilling and I could hear the neighbors over the fence saying that it was making them hungry, lol. Seven minutes grilling per side was perfect. I served it with a mushroom sauce which was probably a bit over the top but I hadn't expected the meat to be so flavorful. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Excellent marinade! Simple ingredients I stuck to the recipes but I didn't blend it all into a paste I just tossed it all in a ziploc, shook it up and left it in the fridge all day, about 5 hrs. It smelled delicious on the grill, and everyone loved it. I served it with rice pilaf, grilled asparagus and a side salad. I will definitely be making this again! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I have been preparing london broil throughout my entire marriage and had yet to find a recipe that I loved...I have now found it. The marinade was so flavorful and my london broil turned out so moist (it usually turns out dry for me. I did use red wine vinegar instead of red wine because I did not have any red wine available and the marinade still tasted great. I also used a gas grill instead of charcoal and cooked the meat for 7 minutes on medium-high heat and it wasn't quite long enough. I will cook it for 9 min. on each side next time. I served it with baked apples and some steamed veggies. Perfect! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Whole family loved this. Served with rice and salad. Would have loved to have left overs, but did not have any. Will make again!! item not reviewed by moderator and published

I have tried many different marinades and rubs for london broil and this is by far one of my favorites. Excellent! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I added pepper and used low sodium soy but other than that prepared marinade as written. The meat was very tasty and tender but it did stick to my grill pan. Next time I will add some oil and see if that helps. I grilled for 9 minutes on each side and it was starting to burn so I put it in a 350 degree oven for 7 minutes and it was a perfect med-rare. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Wonderful marinade! The honey and balsamic are such a good combo and the red wine and garlic are, of course, perfect for london broil. I added slightly more garlic, just because I love it, and my boyfriend put in a touch extra honey (it was noticeable, but good). I love that these are all pantry staples. I'm making it again today and added in a large spoonful of coarse ground dijon mustard. I'll update to let you know how it goes... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great recipe!! I followed the recipe to a tee, and it came out really tasty. I sliced the cooked beef thinly & made 'Philly-ish' steak sandwiches with grilled green peppers & onions, topped with provolone cheese. Definitely a family hit! Will make this regularly! Thanks for the excellent recipe! Rob, Sarasota FL item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was so simple and very tasty. I marinated a slightly larger steak for 5 hours and grilled it 8 minutes per side. Perfectly medium rare and tender. A keeper! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The honey sets this apart from other marinades that I use. It is a refreshing change for us and the marinade, heated as a sauce, was lovely. It will definately go into my rotation for excellent london broil recipes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
