Meg's notes for this recipe:
I used a london broil, but you can use any cut of meat you like.
Make it Your Way...

Personalize This


Mix marinade ingredients together in a plastic zip bag. Add your meat seal pressing out the air so the marinade covers all sides of the meat. Chill for at least several hours or over night.
Let meat sit for 15 - 20 mins to take the chill off. Grill over high heat for 5-7 mins on each side then move meat to indirect heat and cook for an additional 10 mins on each side.
(This step is worth doing but not nessacery.) Loosely cover meat with foil for 10 mins before cutting.

Thanks Meg! Does that say 1 tablespoon of pepper? Wow! I may have to cut back a bit on that! I'm whimpy when it comes to hot spices!
