It is still hotter than blazes here in AZ so I am trying to use my oven as little as possible. The kids all went back to school this week (sadly, mine are all grown now) and I know there are lots of happy moms. I get it--it's nice to have a break and be back on a schedule for a while.  I have experimented with several marinades for London Broil and this is what we love the best.  It seems like a lot of ingredients, but most of them you will already have.  Serve it with a nice green salad and some crusty bread. Or a baked potato if you really want to turn on your oven!!

1-2 lb. London Broil steak
1/3 c. olive oil
2 T. red wine vinegar
1-2 cloves minced garlic
1/3 c. soy sauce
1/3 c. honey
Juice and zest of one lime
1/4-1/2 t. red chile flakes (depending on how you like the "heat")
1 T. tomato paste
1 t. coarse black pepper
1/2 t. dried leaf oregano

Whisk all ingredients except meat together in a medium bowl until well mixed.  Place in a large resealable plastic bag and add meat.  Marinate at least 4 hours in refrigerator or up to 12 hours.  

Preheat gas or charcoal grill to medium. Remove steak from marinade.  Pour marinade in small sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Simmer for 10 minutes.  Set aside.

Grill steak on medium heat for desired doneness.  6 minutes on each side for rare.  Transfer meat to a place and let it rest for 5-10 minutes.  Cut steak into thin slices on the gross grain in diagonal slices.  Serve with the extra marinade.
