London Broil Marinade

  • 1 2-3 lb London broil
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • zest of 1 lime
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice (about 1 whole lemon)
  • 2 tsp lime juice (about 1 whole lime)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp hot sauce Chipotle pepper base preferred
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper

Cilantro Gremolata

  • 1 yellow, red, or orange bell peppers roasted, skin removed, de-seeded, and finely minced
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 bunch cilantro leaves finely minced


  • Combine all of the ingredients for the marinade in a gallon zip top bag and add the London broil. Remove the steak from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature a half an hour before you're ready to grill.
  • Prepare your grill for high direct heat and allow it to preheat so the grill grates are nice and hot. Remove the steak from the marinade and shake off any excess. Place the steak directly on the grill.
  • Allow the steak to cook for 6-8 minutes per side for a rare steak, cook for 8-10 minutes per side for medium, and cook for 10-12 minutes per side for well done.
  • Remove the London broil to a large cutting board and allow to rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing thinly, against the grain.
  • While your meat is resting, combine all of the ingredients for the gremolata in a small bowl. Top the sliced steak with the gremolata and serve!
