Summer might be winding down, but there is still plenty of time to fire up the grill for a delicious London Broil. This cut of round steak is marinated for extra flavor then grilled up to perfection. I would definitely recommend grilling the steak to med-rare, as round can become tough if cooked to well or even medium.

( I did not include the ingredients for the marinade in the nutrition information, as the meat doesn't really absorb any of it -- measured before and after and got same amount--just gets flavor from it)
For the marinade:
2 TBS dark brown sugar
1 TBS beef base concentrate ( bouillon)
1 tsp. minced garlic
1/4 cup canola oil
1 TBS fresh ground black pepper
3 TBS low sodium soy sauce
1 tsp salt
1 tsp onion powder
1/2 cup warm water
2- 2 1/2 pound round roast for London Broil, trimmed (for best results, I use Certified Angus Beef® brand)
1. Mix warm water with beef base and brown sugar, stir until dissolved. Add all other ingredients, except roast, and mix well.
2. Put roast in gallon sized zipper bag and pour marinade on top. Seal bag and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight. Grill over medium-high heat until roast is med-rare. Cover with foil and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Slice against grain at an angle.
I'll be honest with you, I made this roast sometime in June, I think. The pictures have been sitting in my camera waiting to be posted since then! An now that I am seeing them, I am thinking this needs to become an item on next week's menu! It's really so easy. You just need to have the time to let it properly marinade....then cooking it up is a breeze. So it makes a great week night main dish. Pair it with a nice garden salad and you've got a great end of summer meal.
Round Steak is a pretty good deal calorie speaking. It is fairly lean, and this is why you do need to not overcook it. It is also pretty fairly priced and I have found that most of my grocery stores cut it specifically for London Broil.
