The marinade of soy sauce and sherry in this London Broil recipe creates the perfect harmony of salty and sweet. The addition of cinnamon adds the unmistakable fragrant and warm taste associated with the favorite winter spice.
London broil is actually a way to prepare a piece of flank steak, not a particular cut of beef. In this case we are talking about the piece of beef labeled “London Broil”. The key to preparing London broil is to marinate before cooking. The cutting is also very important or else the meat will be tough to eat.
1 (1 1/2 or 2 pound) flank steak
1 Tablespoon sherry or any dry red wine
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1. Score meat on all sides.
2. Mix together remaining ingredients. Put on meat and let stand 1 1/2 to 2 hours, then place meat in broiler pan about 4 inches from heat. Broil about 10 minutes or a little longer on each side. Ten minutes is for medium rare.
3. To serve, cut diagonally across the grain into very thin slices.
