You can find London broil at most markets, but make sure that you buy it when it’s completely unspoiled – if it has even a slight brownish tint to it, then it’s starting to go bad. Make sure to buy only purely bright-red cuts. If you’re opting for the steak or roast, make sure it’s at least an inch thick and has a low quantity of visible fat. This way, you’re getting the best out of your steak.

You need to preheat any regular grill to its maximum level. First, take the steak or roast and remove any visible slabs of fat from it so that you don’t fill up on garbage. Cut the meat into four to six ounce pieces and season it with your favorite marinade, spice rub and of course salt and pepper. Put it on your preheated grill and cook for a minimum of three and a maximum of six minutes per side, or just however you like it. If you like it rare, it will take less time, if you like it well done, it will take more. A four ounce piece of steak will have 138 calories when cooked, with 24 grams of that being protein and 4 grams being fat. Delicious!

If you don’t want to wash any dishes afterwards, put some aluminum foil on the pan before putting the fish on it.

After you’re done eating, just throw the foil in the bin. You will need to bake the fish for 10 to 14 minutes, depending on which way you want it.
