Full Answer

The broiler and pan should be preheated for 10 minutes before placing the steak under the broiler in the oven. A London broil is not a cut of beef, but a method of cooking it. Usually, London broil is made with tougher cuts of meat, such as the flank or top round steak.

The meat is marinated overnight. Typical marinades start with soy sauce, beer or Worcestershire sauce and also have vegetable oil and seasonings, such as red wine, balsamic vinegar, fruit juice, hot sauce and fresh ginger. Meat is marinated by poking holes in it, and then soaking it in the marinade in a sealed container. The London broil is then broiled in the oven. If the meat is overcooked, it becomes very tough. After coming out of the oven, the meat should rest for 5 minutes before being carved. For a London broil, the meat should be cut across the grain into thin slices.

    How long does it take to cook a 3 1/2 pound roast in a slow cooker?

    A:

    Allowing for prep times, which includes searing the meat on all sides before putting into the slow cooker, it takes between 8 and 9 hours to cook a roast, such as a beef pot roast, on the low setting. Cooking the roast on the high setting can reduce the cooking time by as much as half. Roasts are typically made in a slow cooker with vegetables in a broth, which can be used to make a gravy.
