London Broil
« on: October 15, 2007, 12:57:37 PM »
Can flank or london broil truly be tender?

I have a london broil and contemplating what to do with it.  My biggest peeve with this cut that no matter what I do, it is chewy and tough.

Any tried and true methods you use that doesn't involve marinating for longer than 4 hours?

You could use a meat tenderizer. Or you could braise it.

You have to slice it against the grain, thinly at an angle.  It's not tough at all that way.

I've never had a problem as long as I slice thinly against the grain, like Summrs said.  However -- if I remember, I like to marinate it in teriyaki sauce for several days for the teriyaki flavor, not for tenderness.
