I know that I’ve complained all summer about being in a tiny apartment in NYC without access to a grill. Well now that it has cooled done, I can use my favorite substitute: the broiler. This cooks meat like no other and even though it heats up our apartment like crazy, we have a quick and delicious meal in no time. I made a Balsamic Glazed London Broil and it was superb!
London broil is one of my favorite cuts of meat because not only is it delicious, but it’s one of the cheapest cuts of meat too. I know I can have a great meal for under $10 when I make Balsamic Glazed London Broil and have plenty of leftovers to make sandwiches the next day. And using the broiler is one of the quickest ways to cook meat, so dinner can be ready in under 30 minutes.
Going into the winter months, our views on food change. We want hearty filling meals to combat the cold. We want more complex meals because we are inside because of the cold. We want satisfying meals, the kind where you roll away from the table because you are stuffed. That’s the type of food that we need right now. Making a Balsamic Glazed London Broil definitely fills those requirements.
I paired this meal with some broccoli and mashed potatoes. Oh and a good glass of red wine and it was delicious! What are your favorite cold weather meals? Do you have a good london broil recipe? Let me know!
