So how do you marinate and grill these tougher cuts of meat to perfection?
A top round steak or flank steak (also known as London Broil) needs about eight hours or overnight to marinate and soften. Scoring the steak also helps the marinade penetrate the meat for even more tenderness and an excellent flavor.

This budget-friendly London Broil is so tender and flavorful – a perfect dinner idea when you're wanting to grill!
- 3 pounds Top Round Steak or London Broil (flank steak)
For the Marinade:
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
- 1 whole juice of one lime
- 1/4 cup coconut aminos
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning blend
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Start by scoring meat with a sharp knife – go about 1/4 inch deep in a diagonal cross pattern, and be sure to score both sides of the meat.
Whisk together ingredients for the marinade. Pour over meat in a shallow dish, or place meat and marinade in a freezer bag. Chill in the marinade for at least 8 hours or overnight.
Before grilling, let meat come to room temperature.
Heat grill to medium-high heat.
Gently shake off excess marinade and place meat on grill for about 8-10 minutes on each side until desired doneness (I like to add a little fresh cracked pepper on top while grilling).
Pull meat off the grill and let rest for 10 minutes, then slice into strips. Enjoy!

Such a cheap cut of meat with a bold flavor payoff!
My affordable London Broil was a huge success, and my family loved it! I diced up the leftover meat and sautéed with onion and bell peppers which made for great tasting tacos the next day.
I know you’ll enjoy this easy and totally budget-friendly grilling recipe, too!
Do you think you could cook this inside? How would you do it?
Hmm I looked up some oven recipes that say broil in oven for about 6 min on each side until internal temp of 125 degrees and let rest for 10 minutes. Hope that helps!
I use a cast iron skillet – HOT SKILLET – sear 3 mins each side (depending on thickness of cut) and then in a hot oven 3-5 mins (450 – skillet and all) – thin slice against grain – if too rare, just throw the slices back into the hot skillet! Perfection every time
YUM! 😋Thanks for letting us know how you perfectly cook yours, Marianne! ❤️
