Grilled London Broil with Grilled Carrots and Fresh Green Beans

Just For Fun, Seasonal, Tastebuds

London Broil Marinade:


For the Marinade:

  • ¾ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 (2 – 2 ½ lb.) London broil (top round, flank steak, or skirt steak)


  • In a large bowl, whisk together all of the marinade ingredients until completely combined. Pour marinade into a large zip-top plastic bag. Add London Broil to the bag, squeeze out all of the air, and seal the bag. Toss gently to coat the London Broil with the marinade.
  • Place in refrigerator to marinate for about 4 hours (or up to 2 days), occasionally tossing to redistribute the marinade.
  • Remove meat from the marinade, discard the marinade, and pat the meat dry.


  • Allow the meat to sit on the counter for about 30 minutes to come to room temperature. Remove meat from marinade and grill the meat for about 4 minutes per side over direct heat, then move to indirect heat until the meat reaches 125-130° F for rare, 135° F for medium-rare, or 145° F for medium. Transfer meat to a cutting board and let stand 10 minutes. Cut meat diagonally across the grain into thin slices.

Grilled Carrots


  • 2 lb. carrots, peeled
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ¼ cup soy sauce


  1. Preheat the grill to 450ºF-500ºF.
  2. Then, place carrots into a casserole dish and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Next, pour soy sauce over the carrots and roll carrots around in soy sauce.
  4. Let the carrots sit in the soy sauce for at least 15 minutes.
  5. When ready to grill, place carrots over direct heat on the grill for 6 minutes, flipping as needed to char the whole carrot.
  6. Then, place carrots over indirect heat and pour the rest of the marinade over the carrots (the sauce that was left in the casserole dish), and grill carrots over indirect heat for an additional 12-15 minutes. Or until fork tender.
  7. Remove from heat and serve immediately.

Fresh Green Beans


  • Quart of Beans
  •  About 2 cups of Chicken Broth (make sure the beans are covered)
  • 2 Chicken Bullion Cubes
  • 1 Tbsp Minced Onion
  • 1 Tsp Salt (I used Himalayan Rock Salt)
  • 1 Tbsp Bacon Grease


  1. Clean the green beans and put them into a medium saucepan.
  2. Add all the ingredients in with the beans.
  3. Bring to a boil then low the temperature to simmer and allow to cook for four hours.

Summer is here and one of the best parts of that is grilling outside with friends and family while nothing beats a good steak this London Broil comes pretty close. This is a simple meal that tastes AMAZING! It’s the perfect date night and family night meal, and since today is also Father’s Day give Dad a new grilling challenge.

We’ve been using the London broil marinade for about two years now and it works for more than just London broil. The link to the original site is here I highly recommend this if you are looking for a jerky marinade as well. The nutrition information is here Servings 1 cup, Calories 321kcal. 

The carrots were something new that I tried for the first time. I’d put them on when the broil is about halfway done. The nutrition information for these is Serving Size: 1/4 Calories: 164 Sugar: 11 Fat: 7 Carbohydrates: 23 Fiber: 7 Protein: 4. The recipe came from Pinterest and here’s the link

For the green beans, I don’t have nutrition information or a link to an online recipe. This is a variation of a recipe I got from my great aunt. She made these for a few family gatherings and I begged for the recipe. Mine never quite turned out like hers so this is my variation which is also really good. My boyfriend loves green beans.

We fought over the last piece of this meal. That’s how good this meal is and after prep, it doesn’t take really take much time to cook. So get your grill ready with family and friends and enjoy this meal. Also for those of legal age, it pairs really well with your favorite wine or beer.
