new London Broil marinade

For marinade:
5 large garlic cloves
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup dry red wine (or sherry)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon honey

a 1 1/2 pound top-round London broil (about 1 1/4 inches thick)

Make marinade: Mince and mash garlic to a paste with salt and in a blender blend with remaining marinade ingredients.

In a heavy-duty sealable plastic bag combine London broil with marinade. Seal bag, pressing out excess air, and put in a shallow baking dish. Marinate steak, chilled, turning occasionally, at least 4 hours and up to 24.

Prepare grill. [Note: The charcoal grill was used for this.]

Bring steak to room temperature before grilling. Remove steak from marinade, letting excess drip off, and grill on an oiled rack set 5 to 6 inches over glowing coals 7 to 9 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Transfer steak to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes. Holding a knife at 45 degrees angle, cut steak across grain into thin slices.

Notes: The holiday weekend means that it's time to really get the grill going. This was a nice variation from my usual marinade (which uses Raspberry Thunder Sauce). It was tangy and really was a nice compliment to the flavor of the steak.

Quite good. The flavors from the marinade worked well with those imparted by the charcoal grilling, resulting in a very tasty combination.
