Originally, London Broil was made from the Flank steak. In this recipe we will make the London Broil steak exactly from the flank steak with sweet and sour marinade in Chinese style. Flank steaks are about an inch thick and it is possible to cook these steaks on casting iron skillet or on the grill. The described flank steak is about a 3/4 pounds and this is a perfect single portion.
Flank steak, the size is not very important.
Soy sauce, 2 tbsp
Teriyaki sauce, 2 tbsp
Red wine, 2 tbsp
Balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp
Garlic, half bulb.
Coriander, medium bunch
Milled black pepper.
Drop of oil.
Mix Soy sauce, Teriyaki sauce, Red wine and Balsamic vinegar. Add chopped coriander and pressed garlic.
Marinade flank steak in the prepared marinade for 12 hours. The easiest way to do this – in the freezing bags.
Remove steak from the marinade, clean and dry with paper towel.
Grease casting iron skillet with oil. Fry steak on high heat for about 1,5 minutes
Fry on high heat on other side for 1,5 minutes. The very brown bits are occurs due to caramelizing of sugars from the marinade. Fry again on each side for about 1,5 minutes with slight reducing of heat. The total time of cooking should be about 6 minutes for medium-rare doneness.
