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
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?
