Picked up some london broil on sale for $1.99/LB yesterday at Safeway and decided to Google for a good recipe. Came across the Barbecue Pit Boys YouTube video and decided to try their recipe with a few substitutions:

  • 2-3 LBs of London Broil (4 Steaks)
  • 1 12 to 16 oz bottle beer
    (I used Blue Moon Beligian White Wheat Ale)
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 T. Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp. Onion Powder
  • 2 T. Worcheschire Sauce
  • 1 T. Peppercorns (Substituted 1 T. Weber Grill Creations Black Peppercon Marinade Mix)
  • 1 T. Prepared Horseradish
  • Juice from 1/2 fresh lemon (Substituted 1/8 cup bottled lemon juice)

Mix ingredients thoroughly, split mixture into 2 half-gallon Zip-Lock bags, placing two steaks in each bag. Marinate steaks between 4-6 hours minimum. Since this cut of steak is tough, marinating overnight produces even better results. Preheat grill to 375 degrees (roughly medium); cook each side approximately 8 minutes for medium rare. For best results use a meat thermometer. Temperature desired for medium rare steaks is between 130 and 135 degrees. Cut steak across the grain in thin slices.

Today we celebrated Lady Layla Guinevere’s second birthday by going on an extra long early morning walk, giving her all the time she needed to hunt for fairies along the creek side. I uploaded a few pictures of her adventures to her birthday gallery.
