How Do You Tenderize London Broil Steak?
A London broil steak is a cut of beef that traditionally comes from the flank portion of the cow. Because the London broil comes from the flank, it is a very flavorful cut of beef. The first step in preparing a London broil steak is to make sure that the raw meat is prepared to be most tender after cooking. In order to get the best flavor and texture out of a London broil steak, cooking the steak should begin with tenderizing the piece of meat. Unwrap the steak. Rinse the steak with cool water. Lay a large piece of waxed paper across the wooden cutting board. Place the London broil steak on the waxed paper. Cover the steak with a second piece of waxed paper. Use the meat mallet to evenly pound the piece of steak on both sides. Remove the waxed paper from the steak. Prepare the steak for cooking as directed by any London Broil recipe.
