Discover the versatility of flank steak by using these enticing London Broil recipes. London Broil can be cooked in several ways, including broiling and slowly in a crock pot. Some cooks like to marinate the London Broil for hours in savory spices while some cooks like to just get to creating a delicious beef dish.
