Tuesday: London Broil, Roasted Potatoes and Green Salad

A steak is great any time of year and this my go-to preparation when life gets a little crazy. Note: This is a doubler of the steak for use later in the week.

Serves: 4     Prep: 15 (8-24 hours to marinate)    Cooking: 30


For the Steak

1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 Tablespoon of soy sauce or tamari
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh rosemary needles
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper (fresh is best)
2 1/2 - 3 lbs top round London broil, about 1 1/2 "thick

For the Potatoes
1 lb fingerling potatoes
1 tablespoon chopped rosemary
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper

For the Salad
1 head butter lettuce
½ pint grape tomatoes, halved or 3 campari, chopped
1 cucumber, large dice
3 tsp balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper


Prep Opportunity
Place steak in heavy large resealable plastic bag.
Whisk together vinegar, olive oil, soy sauce, honey, rosemary and garlic. Pour marinade into bag with steak; seal bag.  Marinate for 8 up to 24 hours.

Preheat oven to 400º.
Place potatoes in a baking dish, in one layer, and toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and rosemary to coat. Bake potatoes in oven for 25 minutes.
Remove potatoes from oven, turn them over and cover with the dish with foil.
Heat the broiler. Transfer the meat to a broil pan or rimmed baking sheet lined with foil, reserving the marinade in a saucepan.
Sprinkle the meat with the pepper. Broil to the desired doneness, about 6 minutes per side for medium-rare.
When you turn the steak, return potatoes to the oven with the foil removed.
Bring marinade to a boil over medium high heat in saucepan. Reduce to a simmer to thicken – stirring occasionally.
Transfer steak to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes.
Combine lettuce, tomatoes, and cucumber in large bowl. Whisk together vinegar, olive oli, lemon juice, salt and pepper and toss with salad.  
Holding knife at a 45º angle, thinly slice the meat across the grain and serve sauced along with potatoes and crisp salad.
