Keeping this in view, what cut of meat is used for London broil?
What is a London Broil. Food enthusiasts will be quick to tell you that London broil is not a cut of beef, but a cooking method. Tough pieces of meat—commonly, flank or top round steak—are left to marinate overnight, and then broiled under high heat and served by thinly slicing the meat “across the grain.”
Beside above, how do you cut London broil against the grain? Position your knife against the direction of the grain. Cutting the London broil against the grain will make the meat taste tender and juicy. If you can't tell which direction the lines run, make a cut on the side of the steak. This will reveal more of the fibres to help you identify their direction.
Likewise, people ask, can you grind London broil?
In my local markets, London Broil is round steak. So, if you grind a london broil, you get ground round. The butchers at the market (and some newspaper writers) all recommend ground chuck as having the best flavor. It is not bad, it is just isn't as tasty as ground chuck would be.
How long should I broil London broil?
Your broiler pan should sit about 4 inches from the flame. London broil only needs 4 - 5 minutes of cooking time on each side. Set a timer to help you remember when to flip it. An 8 minute steak will cook to rare while 10 minutes gives you a medium-rare steak.
