Stovetop London Broil

½ teaspoon peppercorns

1 tablespoon coriander seeds

1 tablespoon fennel seeds

2 bay leaves

1/2 cup red wine

2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

4 teaspoons minced garlic

2 sprigs fresh rosemary

½ cup + 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

2 pounds London broil steak

2 teaspoons sea salt



1. Toast peppercorns, coriander, fennel, and bay leaves in a small skillet over high heat, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, 2 - 3 minutes.

2. Transfer spices to mortar and pestle or simply a hard surface; lightly crush using the pestle or bottom of a jar; then transfer to a glass dish.

3. Add wine, vinegar, Worcestershire, garlic, rosemary, and olive oil; whisk to combine.

4. Poke London broil all over with a fork and place in marinade; spoon some marinade over top. Cover and refrigerate, turning occasionally, for 12 - 24 hours.

5. An hour before cooking, transfer steak to a plate, pat dry, and season both sides with sea salt; set aside to allow to come to room temperature.

6. Transfer marinade to a small pot and bring just to a boil; set aside.

7. Heat a heavy bottomed skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil until almost smoking, then add steak.

8. Grill, turning once until browned on both sides and medium rare - 7 - 8 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes.

9. Carve steak into thin slices on the bias and serve with the warmed marinade. Leftovers make a great addition to salads or sandwiches.

A beautiful table setting - Tips from Brenda Carnahan:

"For a very special table setting, I often use Made in France Jacquard tablecloths (they are an investment). I try to get the ones Teflon coated…spill and stain proof. I Dream of France is one of the sources I use. I also like Williams and Sonoma. For very casual eating with children at the table, I use synthetic cloths found at Home Goods, Marshall’s, Ross. Napkins, I order in bulk from Amazon… I know there are plenty of places to access table linens. These are just my “go to” places! Hope this helps!"
