5 Tips for How to Grill London Broil
As long as I’m sharing the best london broil marinade recipe I know, I should probably also help you prepare the meat. And grilling is arguably one of the most popular ways to prepare London broil, or at least it is in my family. So, it makes total sense that I should give you some tips on how to grill London broil.
- Don’t skimp on the marinade for London broil steak. Seriously, you need the acid to help keep the meat tender. It doesn’t take much to make London broil turn game-y, similar to venison (although not that hard to cook). So you really need the vinegar and other flavors to do their thing here. You also want to give the London broil marinade as much time as you can to work, so try to prepare the meat the night before if you can.
- Medium is the magic level of preparedness here. If you cook a London broil to well-done, it will lose some of that melt-in-your-mouth texture and turn a bit more… chewy. So don’t cook it for too long! This is about 150F.
- Use medium-high heat. The idea here is to get some chargrill on the outside, while leaving the inside tender. Cook on each side for about 7-8 minutes, or until the meat is cooked through to a medium level.
- Cook on the indirect heat side of the grill. What this means is that you light one side of the grill, but put the meat on the side that isn’t fired up. It’s a technique I use for the best ribs I’ve ever had in my life (recipe over here). Before doing this, make sure your grill is heated to about 400F, and keep the top closed while the meat is cooking.
- Don’t be impatient! Like any good steak, you don’t want to cut into it right away. Let it sit for at minimum 10 minutes, so it can soak some of those juices back up.

As long as you have a few key ingredients, it’s easy to make a quick London broil marinade. Here’s the key elements to a marinade, and as long as you have some version of these, your London broil marinade will be awesome.
- Fat. You need some form of fat, especially for lean cuts of meat like London broil. This replaces the marbling that fatty cuts of meat have, that keep the meat tender and juicy.
- Acid. Acid helps tenderize the meat. You can use lemon juice, lime juice, or vinegar. Whatever acidic ingredient you have will work.
- Flavor. Here’s where ingredients like the dijon mustard or spices come in. You want to add some flavor to your meat. Feel free to get creative here.
- Salt. You want to add a salty element to your marinade. Salt is actually a flavor enhancer, so not only does it make everything delicious, but it actually brings out the other flavors in a dish. This includes ingredients like soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, or just plain old salt.
