The ” The London broil” is a staple meal for most Americans”.
In this post I will be going over 5 different ways you can get the most out of your London broil.
I’m a butcher and at least once a week my family and I will eat London broil for dinner. It’s inexpensive and it’s usually on sale. A 2 pound piece of London broil can serve a family of 5 for less then 10$.
It’s a lean piece of meat that can be cooked in multiple ways. Instead of the usual ways, I will be adding some new ideas into your dinner menu.
You can take a London broil and have your butcher cut into cubes. The size of the cubes depends on yourself. Smaller cubes are best for stew, while the bigger ones are good for Shish kabobs. Stew meat and cubes of beef for Shish kabobs tend to cost alot more per pound than a London broil. Having your butcher do this for you will save you alot of money.
A cubed steak is another great way to get the most out of your London broil. A London broil that weighs 1 1/2 lbs will net about 5-6 cubed steaks. Cubed steaks, “minute steak” cook fast. It takes about 4 minutes for each side in a hot pan to cook them . You can even bread them and fry them “chicken fried steak”! Normally cubed steaks will go for above 6$ a pound in your local supermarket, while a London broil on sale cost as little as 3$ a pound. It’s a great deal if London broil is on sale. Most supermarkets don’t charge to have this done, so take advantage of your butcher!
Stir fry is another way to transfrom your London broil into something different you will enjoy. Cut into thin (shoe string like) strips, just like they do in your favorite asain restaurants. Just add a couple of vegetables and you can have a healthy, hardy meal for under $12. You can attempt to do this yourself, or just ask your butcher do do this for you.
Pepper steak is great way to go to get the most out of your London broil! The London broil is cut into strips and are about a fingers length in size. Just like the cubed steak, the pepper steak sells for around $6.lb. Having you or your butcher do this to your London broil saves a lot money. The best way to cook pepper steak I think is with onions, mushrooms and noodles.
Lean ground beef
A package of lean ground beef could be had out of your London broil. One London broil is as lean as a package of 85% lean ground beef. Your butcher should be able to do this, but we use a industrial grinder and it’s hard to grind just one package. Being a industrial meat grinder, we grind our beef in bulk. A little bit of your London broil will be lost if you have your butcher grind it for you. I have a personal grinder a that works great. You can grind pork, veal and lamb as well. Some people prefer to grind thier own meat, so they know exactly what they’re eating. If you are in search of a good personal meat grinder click the link below. They’re are handy and don’t cost much.

For a interesting, inexpensive meal, have your butcher butterfly a London broil
I butterfly my London broil and roll it up “no jokes please” and add provolone cheese and spinach. You can add anything you like, you can even add bacon or other vegetables. All you need is string and your favorite ingredients.
