Roasted Mustard Potatoes and London Broil

23 Jul

I had picked up a small bag of potatoes at tjs and was planning on either roasting them or mashing them. Then i remembered I had pinned some yummy looking potato recipes, so I decided to give one of them a try. They came out super yummy! A nice change from mashed potatoes! I served them with London broil and corn on the cob. The corn didn’t make it to the picture unfortunately! I added the marinade recipe below it was delicious!

London broil

10 Aug

I had this London broil sitting in the freezer. I figured it was time to use it! The steak went from being not done to overdone super quickly!!! We like our steak a lot rarer than what it turned out! I only let it marinate about 4 hours.. It should probably be over night! I served this with corn on the cob and sautéed green beans.

adapted from aggies kitchen

1.5 lb London Broil
1/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
2 TB Dijon mustard
1 TB Worcestershire sauce
4 garlic cloves, minced
salt and pepper to taste

In a bowl, combine Balsamic vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic and salt and pepper. Place London Broil in a zip lock bag. Pour marinade into bag, making sure to coat and massage the steak with marinade. Place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight and/or all day.

Preheat broiler/oven to 450 degrees. Using tongs, pull steak out of ziplock bag and place on broiler rack. Spoon over about 2 tablespoons of marinade over steak. Place in oven a cook for approximately 5-7 minutes per side (for a 1 inch steak) for medium. Add more time for a thicker steak or if you like it more well done. Once steak is done cooking, let rest on cutting board for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Make sure to slice against the grain.

Crockpot London broil

I’m always looking for more beef recipes for the crockpot, and London broil was on sale last week so this recipe was worth a try! The meat came out really tender but needed some more flavor! I made some quick pillsbury grand biscuits to go with it and sprinkled cheese on top.
