London Broil with Garlic Red Wine Sauce – 25 minutes
London Broil with Garlic Red Wine Sauce – It’s easy! Let’s do it!
First thing take the meat out of the fridge to get as close to room temp as possible before you put it on the stovetop grill or outdoor grill or in the skillet. Chop up the garlic. Don’t put any salt on the meat until just before you grill it. Salt will draw out water and make the cooked steak dryer. Set the grill or pan at medium high and spray or wipe it with olive oil. When it’s heated up salt and pepper the London Broil and set it on the grill.
Put a small skillet on at medium and add the butter and the chopped garlic.
As soon as the garlic starts to sizzle add the red wine, salt and pepper. Stir it all up and simmer it until the wine has reduced and gotten as thick YOU want it. If it is done before the meat is ready to serve just lower the burner to as low as it can go and scoot the pan off center a little.
Cook the London Broil 3 – 6 minutes a side depending on the thickness and how well done that you like it.
Before you slice it let it rest in a dish, that will catch the drippings, for at least 5 minutes. Before you slice the meat look at the side of the steak and notice that the grain runs on an angle. Slice on an angle opposite to the grain. This will make the slices more tender and chewable.
When you and your gang have different needs as far as how well done they like it you could cook the whole steak rare and for any of the folks that want it more well done just leave the grill or pan on at medium and put the slices that need to be more well done on the grill for a little bit.
