Marinated London Broil with Blue Cheese Sauce

If you’ve been a reader of my website for a while you may have noticed that my go to red meat is London Broil. I can feed two people for 5 dollars with it. It’s lean and when cooked properly, it’s tender, flavorful and tastes great with almost any seasoning. The best part of this recipe is you don’t have to cook the sauce! Just mix the ingredients and it’s ready to go.
P.S. You don’t need a grill or grill pan for this recipe. Preheat oven on broil to 500. For a one inch thick cut, broil 4 minutes on one side, 3 minutes on the other for medium rare, about 1 minute longer on each side for medium. Allow to rest 5 minutes before carving on a sharp angle, thin and against the grain.
Oh yeah and it’s only 350 calories per serving! Woot Woot!

Recipe adapted from here.
Serves 4

  • 1 1/4 pounds London Broil or Flank Steak
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced (divided)
  • 2 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
  • 2 tablespoons low-fat buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives
  • Dash Worcestershire sauce

In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, balsamic vinegar, sugar and 2 cloves of garlic. Put the London Broil into a sealable plastic bag with the marinade and let sit for 30 minutes at room temperature, or 1 hour in the refrigerator.

In the meantime, in a small bowl combine the blue cheese, buttermilk, remaining garlic and chives with a fork, mashing until creamy. Stir in the Worcestershire sauce and season to taste with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Spray a large grill pan with cooking spray and preheat over medium-high heat.

Remove the meat from the marinade and season both sides with salt and pepper. Discard the marinade. Cook the meat in the grill pan over medium-high heat for about 3 minutes per side for medium rare. Allow London Broil to rest 5 minutes, carve thinly against the grain. Drizzle with blue cheese sauce and garnish with extra chives.
