Feeling like a steak, but want to feel really, really good about eating it?

Try a London Broil. It’s lean, it’s flavorful, and paired with lots of yummy, summery vegetables it’s just about totally guilt-free!

Grilled London Broil with Summer Vegetables

Makes 4, 10 oz. servings Prep Time: 15 minutes + marinating time

Cook Time: 10 minutes

1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 T. Giant olive or Giant canola oil
1 T. Giant fresh thyme or oregano
2 large cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp. Giant ground pepper
1 lb Giant beef top round steak (London Broil)
1 cup Giant cherry tomatoes
2 medium Giant zucchini, sliced lengthwise
1 medium Giant yellow summer squash, sliced lengthwise
1 tsp. Giant olive oil
2 T. grated Parmesan cheese

For marinade, combine vinegar, oil, thyme or oregano, garlic and pepper in a food-safe plastic bag. Add steak to bag and turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

Toss tomatoes, zucchini and yellow squash with oil. Make an aluminum foil boat to contain tomatoes. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Pre-heat your grill and place steak over medium direct heat. Arrange vegetables around steak. Grill steak, uncovered, 8 to 9 minutes for medium doneness, turning occasionally. Grill vegetables 6 to 10 minutes or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally.

Remove vegetables to a serving platter and sprinkle with cheese. Carve steak into thin slices against the grain.
