1 (3-pound) London broil

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1/3 cup balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon packed brown sugar

1 garlic clove, smashed and peeled

1 bay leaf


  1. Preheat the broiler and line a rimmed baking sheet with foil.
  2. Season the meat with the salt and pepper. In a large skillet over low heat, combine the vinegar, brown sugar, garlic, and bay leaf. Simmer until the liquid has reduced by half and is a syrupy consistency, about 5 minutes. Discard the garlic and bay leaf.
  3. Put the meat on the baking sheet and slather it with the glaze. Broil the meat 4 inches from the heat until it reaches the desired level of doneness, about 4 to 5 minutes per side. Remove from the broiler to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Thinly slice the meat against the grain and transfer it to a serving platter.

Cook’s Note

When using the broiler, crack the oven door open so the meat does not burn.
