London Broil

Momma Foodie used to make this quite often growing up. It's a great way to make a cheaper cut of beef tender, juicy and taste like a special dinner. It is also great for a weeknight dinner because you whisk together a few simple ingredients, marinate overnight, and when you get home from work it cooks so quickly. I served this with asparagus and a green salad. It's also good with couscous or a rice pilaf.

1 top round steak
1/3-1/2 c. soy sauce (I use the reduced sodium)
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 tbsp. ginger paste or fresh grated ginger

Whisk together the soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Pour the mixture into a gallon size zip-top bag.

Season the steak with lots of fresh ground pepper (NO SALT). Add to the bag, zip it up and place in the fridge overnight (or for at least 6 hours).

Remove the steak from the bag and discard the marinade. Preheat the grill or broiler and cook the steak 3-4 minutes on each side, or to your desired done-ness.
