London Broil is not a cut of beef, but instead a way to prepare it. London broil is usually made with a top round steak, but can also be done with flank steak, sirloin steak or Tri-tip. It is also great served with a generous drizzle of il Fustino Aged Balsamic Vinegar during plating. The secrets to a great London Broil are a flavorful marinade and being sliced thinly against the grain. Leftover London Broil makes great cold roast beef sandwiches.
