London Broil with Brandy Sauce

For the money I like to cook London Broil Steaks, they are easy to cook and taste great.

  • Take the steak out of the fridge about an hour before cooking it to let it come to room temperature, rub a little olive oil and season heavily with salt and pepper.
  • Heat the grill as hot as it will go and cook about 5-7 minutes per side, or until internal temperature reaches 120 degrees, then remove from the grill.
  • Cover with aluminum foil to let the steak rest for 15 minutes.

While the steak rests make the sauce.

  • For the sauce put 2 tbsp of butter in a sauté pan and heat it until melted.
  • Add 2  tbsp of flour and cook until it is slightly off white.
  • Carefully add 1/4 cup of brandy to the pan. Be careful it will catch on fire.
  • Cook until the flames go out, then using a whisk add ½ cup of heavy cream.
  • Add a cup of water mixed with 1 tsp beef base.
  • Let it cook stirring constantly until you achieve the thickness you desire.
  • Add black pepper to taste to the sauce. Beef base is already a little salty.

Cut the steak slightly on an angle or bias place in the plate.
