London Broil


1 beef flank steak, 1-1/2 to 2 pounds
1/2 cup salad oil
1/4 cup vinegar or red Burgundy wine
1/4 cup soy sauce
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 bay leaf
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
dash cayenne pepper


Score the surface of the steak on both sides. Combine all the other ingredients for a marinade. Place the meat in a flat utility dish and pour the marinade over it. Cover and refrigerate for 12 hours, turning occasionally. Remove from the marinade.

Preheat broiler. Broil steak 2 to 3 inches below heat, about 5 minutes on each side. A flank should be cooked rare or it will toughen. Serve with the classic Bearnaise Sauce.

Bearnaise Sauce


Makes 1-1/2 cups.
