I grew up in a meat and potatoes family. My father wasn't big on vegetables, but loved a good steak. I wasn't a fan of red meat when I was growing up and usually kept a bag of spinach on hand to eat whenever we were having steak for dinner. Now I look back at my younger self in hindsight and think I was crazy. Steak has become a favorite meal of mine and I really enjoyed coming up with a London Broil recipe as London Broil is a cheap cut that's easy cut to marinate. This Oven Baked Garlic Rosemary London Broil recipe did not disappoint!
How to cook London Broil
London broil is an easy and versatile cut of steak to cook. In the warmer months it can be grilled, but in the cold months I like to broil it in the oven. First I make my marinade for the london broil, let it marinade for a few hours, then broil 4-5 minutes per a side or until desired doneness. And just like that you have a meal cooked in under 10 minutes!
How to marinate London Broil
There are many types of marinades that can be used for a london broil. In this recipe I used a garlic rosemary rub. I also like to use balsamic marinades, asian marinades, or spicing it up with a spicy style marinade. The possibilities are many and it's up to your preferences. This cut of meat has lots of options!
Trying to eat healthy while making comfort food can be done, you just need the willpower
I usually pair steak with fresh vegetables to balance out the plate. Roasted asparagus, steamed broccoli, garlic spinach and roasted brussels sprouts are usually my favorites. But one of the most classic pairings of course is mashed potatoes. It's a classic for a reason and if given the option I'll always be swayed to make that as the side. However trying to eat healthy while making comfort food can be done, you just need the willpower 😉
