Q:

How long does it take to cook London broil in the oven?

A:

It takes 8 to 10 minutes to cook a London broil in the oven. A London broil only needs 4 to 5 minutes of cooking time on each side. Cooking the steak 8 minutes makes it rare, and cooking it 10 minutes leaves it medium rare.

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.

    What is the difference between London broil and flank steak?

    A:

    London broil and flank steak are actually the same cut of beef. The difference between them is in how they’re prepared and cut for serving. Because flank steak comes from the steer’s lower hindquarters, it’s tough. To tenderize, both London broil and flank steak are usually marinated overnight. While flank steak is cooked whole, London broil is cut into large pieces and then cooked and sliced across the grain.

    How long does it take to cook a tri-tip in the oven?

    A:

    The tri-tip, which is a sirloin subprimal cut of beef, may be oven roasted in the oven at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 to 35 minutes for medium-rare doneness and 40 to 45 minutes for medium doneness. Since tri-tip cuts have very little fat, roasting in the oven past medium doneness is not a good idea.
