Crock Pot London Broil

My head had been swirling with a mix of the traditional children’s song about a certain London Bridge and the contemporary naughty version of the song by a certain Mrs. Black-Eyed Pea. While I might not have the cute sequin British flag on a pair of boy shorts, I think my London Broil is a fine salute. The funny thing about the name “London Broil” is that there actually isn’t any connection to London or English foods and you don’t actually have to broil this cut of meat, even though that direction is clearly stated in the name. 

This beef steak is a good balance of muscle and fat and is moist and juicy. It can also be labeled as top round steak or flank steak and it’s still the same part of the cow. It is helpful to marinate this cut of meat overnight before cooking in the oven, but you can get that same effect by cooking it on low with the marinade on the meat in the crock pot. If the meat doesn’t fall apart when it’s done cooking, you can remove it from the crock pot and make thin slices across the grain of the meat. Leftover slices also make really good cold roast beef sandwiches.

A simple meat and potatoes dish is a great way to have a filling dinner without having a lot of fuss. So be American and crock pot your London Broil today!

2-3 lb. London Broil (also called flank steak or top round steak)

4 potatoes, cut into chunks

6 carrots, peeled and cut

1 medium onion, quartered

1/4 c. Worcestershire sauce

2 T. red wine vinegar

2 T. olive oil

3 T. ketchup

2 cloves of garlic, chopped

1 t. black pepper

1 t. rosemary

Place veggies in crock pot first, then lay meat flat. Mix together all remaining ingredient, except rosemary, in a separate bowl. Slowly pour marinade over meat then sprinkle rosemary on top of it. Cook on low for 5-6 hours.

  2. This is a terrible recipe! the potatoes turned out mushy and the meat is overcooked and dry!

  4. I’m sorry to hear that this meal didn’t turn out well for you. Was your meat too lean to produce enough juices, perhaps? I also wonder if your crock pot cooks extra hot. Regardless, I’m sorry that your meal was disappointing. Feel free to email me through my contact page if you’d like suggestions before trying it again!

  8. I’m not a good cook but trying to learn. Making the London broil recipe today only omitted the potatos and added celery hearts cut in 1 inch or so peices. Any suggestions? Hubby trying to stay low carbs after lunch :)

  10. I’m so glad to hear that you are trying to recipes and also adapting them for the needs of your family! I think celery is a great flavor to add to the london broil. How did your dinner turn out??

    Another great crock pot low-carb recipe to try would be ratatouille or chicken cacciatore. You don’t need to serve these over rice or noodles, they are yummy all by themselves too.

    Here’s to a great year of yummy, easy cooking! Thanks for the feedback.
