Homestyle London Broil

F & L Market has London Broil for $2.99 a pound. This is not your traditional London Broil recipe, but boy is it tasty! This is more like a very high end roast recipe. Lean, tender and fantastic! Serve with traditional roasted onions, carrots and yukon gold potatoes.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 medium onion
  • 2-3 pound London Broil
  • kosher salt, pepper, granulated garlic, onion salt
  • 3 cups beef stock
  • 1 cup strained tomatoes no salt
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/4 cup flour for thickening gravy
  • 1/2 cup water for thickening gravy
  • 2 Tablespoons butter

Instructions

  1. Preheat dutch oven over low-medium heat with 1/4 cup of olive oil. Be sure not to crank your heat up too high, or you will burn your oil! Also, preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Season both sides of London Broil generously with course kosher salt, pepper, onion salt, and garlic. Place in Dutch oven and lightly brown both sides. Add onion, and cook until translucent. Bottom of the pan browning is great!
  3. Remove Dutch oven from burner and add 3 cups beef stock and 1 cup strained tomatoes. Place lid on Dutch oven and place in oven at 300 degrees for one hour. Reduce heat to 200 degrees and cook for an additional 3 hours.
  4. Remove Dutch Oven from oven and place back on burner over medium heat. In a separate bowl or cup, mix together 1/4 cup flour with 1/2 cup water. Be sure to stir until all lumps are out of mixture!
  5. Pour flour mixture into beef mixture, heating until mixture thickens. If your mixture is not thickening, increase your heat! To finish, melt in 2 Tablespoons of butter and season to taste with additional salt/pepper.
