  • 2 pounds London Broil
  • 1 Tablespoon Apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 teaspoons garlic salt
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
  • 1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic granules (or powder)
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion granules (or powder)
  1. Using a wooden meat tenderizer, gently pound both sides of the London broil. The goal is not to pierce, but to lightly break up some of the connective tissues. You'll only see very light marks from the mallet.

  2. Next, the marinade. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together until well blended.

  3. Place the meat in a ziplock bag and pour the marinade in on top of it. Squeeze out the air and seal, then refrigerate for at least 24 hours, or up to two days.

  4. Remove the meat from the bag and discard the marinade.

  5. Heat the grill or grill pan to high.

  6. Sear the London broil on both sides, then reduce heat to medium and cook until the desired degree of doneness - internal temperature of 120° for rare, 130° for medium an  140°.

  7. When it is done, remove from the grill and allow to rest for five to ten minutes.

  8. Slice thin and serve. Delicious!
