"Ant" Kelly's London Broil Marinade - Tried & True Recipe

I'm finally back with a another great recipe share! I apologize for the time away, our family made a major move cross country after the holidays. We said good-bye to the gorgeous Colorado mountains and hello to sweet Georgia. The last several months have been spent selling and buying a new home, packing, unpacking and getting used to our new's been quite an adjustment. For those that have followed my blog from the beginning, you know how much I love Georgia, especially Savannah - I'm thrilled one of my favorite cities is now just a few hours drive. 

Now for today's tried & true recipe share, "Ant" Kelly's London Broil Marinade

There is a cute reason why it's "Ant" and not Aunt...the author's niece loved this recipe and always wrote "Ant" for her Aunt Kelly.  

This is my go-to marinade for London Broil (the best ever!!), my husband's childhood favorite. Several years ago I found this marinade on after searching for the flavors my husband described in his dad's famous London Broil. After the first try, it's the only marinade we use for London Broil. The flavor is wonderful and I always have the ingredients on hand. This recipe has a five star rating and tons of rave reviews! 

For today's post, I used a jar of minced garlic - I forgot to buy more fresh garlic at the store, rosemary too. Fresh is best, but the jarred and pantry stuff works well too.

What you need: Balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, fresh ground black pepper, garlic, rosemary and a two pound cut of London broil beef. 

Mix all the ingredients for the marinade in a medium size bowl. Lightly score beef on each side. Place beef in a large zip lock bag and pour marinade over. Using your hands, massage the marinade over the beef in the bag and then place in fridge. Marinate in fridge for at least 2-3 hours. I usually marinate my London Broil for about 8 hours, throwing everything together in the morning and turning it a few times in the fridge throughout the day.

Oh Mary! Mary! I did not know about your move across country! WOW! That's a big change. I'm so excited for you to be in warmer temps...and closer to a city you love so well. This recipe sounds wonderful. I just bet you'll be teaching those southern folks some new 'tricks' in the kitchen. Yay for you!

Hi Mary. I too am from Wisconsin now living in Florida. Where do you go tubing? And Savannah is my favorite city. Love it. Now, about the recipe - is this good to marinate any steak with? Sounds good to me.

My recipe is very similar, except that I use aboutique 2 tablespoons of honey, a teaspoon of salt and warm the mixture at low heat until the honey disolve's before pouring it over the beef.
