o 2 lbs. London Broil beef
o 1 ½ cups cubed, peeled carrots
o 1 ½ cups cubed cabbage
o ½ cup cubed Spanish yellow onion
o 2 cups halved, unpeeled red potatoes
o 1 teaspoon salt
o 1 tablespoon of canola vegetable oil
o 4 quartered cloves of garlic from bulb
o ½ cup of water
Step One – take the 2 lb. London broil beef slab and infuse it with the 4 quartered cloves of garlic. The easiest
way to accomplish this is to take a chopstick or a paring knife to make incision into the beef about 2 inches apart,
then take the garlic and insert it into the holes created. Take ½ of the teaspoon of oil a put it into a pan
warming to medium-high heat. Take ½ teaspoon of salt and dust the slab of beef. When the pan is warmed for about 2
minutes, place the beef into it and spend 10 minutes browning all sides of the beef. DO NOT WASH THE FRYING PAN,
keep the heat on medium-high and place the ½ cup of water into the pan and bring to a boil, then remove from heat
and save to be put on the vegetables. From that point place the seared meat onto a broiler rack lined with foil
and place into a pre-heated 400º oven for 20 minutes. This should bring a meat cooking preference of medium-rare.
Adjust the time longer or shorter for your liking of meat doneness.
Step Two – while the London broil beef slab is in the oven, take ½ tablespoon of canola oil and place into another
frying pan warming to high heat. Next take the halved potatoes and carrots and begin to cook for about 4 minutes,
then add the onion and cabbage and cook for an additional 4 minutes. Add the other ½ teaspoon of salt and the ½ cup
of water that is in the pan used to brown the beef, then cover and cook for another 4 or 5 minutes. Remove from the
heat and let to rest until serving time.
Step Three – a simple, clean presentation of the food will always wet the appetite of those about to eat a meal.
Therefore, never crowd the plate with more than three items at a time. I suggest you take the beef sliced about ¼”
thick-against the grain of the meat to ensure tender cuts-and place it a fan shape on the lower left portion of
the plate. Nest take the vegetables and place the above and to the left of the meat. Compliment this with your
favorite salad placed across from the vegetables and you have a delicious, hearty garlic infused London broil your
family and friends will rave about. I like how cool the slices of garlic appear within the meat and how good it
