Recipe: Grilled Grassfed London Broil – Very Tender!

Recipe: Grilled Grassfed London Broil – Very Tender! post image

Just to break my grill in from the long winter months I thought I would cook a nice piece of london broil. This is a cut that can be tough, especially if it is from a grassfed cow. I’ll show you how to make it super tasty and tender!

The keys to a tender grassfed steak are in the marinade and in the cooking method. Marinating in a vinegar base for a day will help break down the tough collagen fibers in the meat. It also adds lots of flavor!

Cooking at a low temperature and turning and basting with fat frequently, goes a long way to making the steak super tasty and tender!

Also, you don’t want to cook it too long – grassfed steak should be about medium rare or it will get tough.

    Tried this marinade on pork chops this evening. They were only in the marinade for 2 hours but they were excellent! Thanks for another great recipe.
