London Broil

My original plan was to prepare this on the grill but time and the fact that it was extremely warm outside kept me from doing that. I baked it in a high temperature for a short time and finished it on a lower one. It turned out  juicy and delicious and the flavor was wonderful. Served with a salad it hit the spot and was a quick, easy, and satisfying Summer supper.

2½ -3 lb. London Broil Steak
1/3 cup light Olive Oil
2 Tablespoons Smokey Mesquite Seasoning
1 teaspoon Smoked Sea Salt
3 Garlic Cloves, pressed through a
garlic press

Combine Oil, Garlic, and Seasonings and allow to rest till the oil has been mostly absorbed. Place steak into 9 X 13 baking dish and spread generously on both sides with oil/seasoning mixture; cover and refrigerate several hours. Allow to come to room temperature (½ hour) on the counter before baking. Bake @500° for 5 minutes, flip around and bake 5 minutes more. Reduce heat to 350° and bake an additional 5-8 minutes depending on the level of doneness you desire. Internal temperature for Medium Rare starts at 130° so if this is what you want remove it from the oven when the internal temperature is 125° and cover with foil for about 5 minutes.

I baked mine for the additional 8 minutes removed it when it read 130° for the internal temp. and gave it a rest period of 5-10 minutes before cutting it. It was just a bit pink on the inside. Perfect for us. 

It's going to be another scorcher today so my plan is to hang out with the 2 kids that are here at home with me and not go outside much unless I get into the pool with them. ☺

What are y'all do to beat the heat?



  1. Looks wonderful! I've never bought this cut of meat! I've seen it, but always go for the flat iron or the flank steak. I'll have to try it!
    Love the seasonings you yummy!

  2. That looks DELICIOUS!!
    You are getting the heat we had yesterday. We had 101 degrees! I wouldn't mind it as much if we would get rain. Scattered T-Storms in the forecast, but it seems to always miss us. Everything is so brown and depressing. I cut a lot of my flowers down,they looked so bad:(

  3. This looks so good! I will have to try this out soon. I am not sure where to get smoky mesquite seasoning though - is it sold in typical grocery stores or should I look for a source online?

  4. Oh I have always wanted to try making
