"London broil," often call top round, is the perfect cut for easy summertime entertaining. A tangy marinade of lemons and garlic ensures this cut is tender and juicy. Serve with a big green salad and a pile of warm pita bread.
Ingredients: 
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 lemon, juiced then quartered and reserved
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 teaspoons coarse sea salt, divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red chile flakes
  • 1 1/2 pound London broil (top round beef), trimmed of excess fat
Method: 
In a wide, shallow dish, combine oil, lemon juice, lemon quarters, garlic, 1 teaspoon of the salt, pepper and chile flakes. Add beef and gently massage to fully coat with marinade. Cover and refrigerate 12 hours or overnight.  

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking. Remove beef from the marinade and pat dry; discard marinade.  

Season beef with remaining 1 teaspoon salt. Arrange on the grill and cook 4 minutes on one side. Flip and continue to grill until cook to your liking, an additional 2 to 3 minutes for medium-rare. Remove from the grill and allow to rest for about 5 minutes. Thinly slice beef against the grain and serve.
