  • In a large skillet, heat cup oil over medium. Add potatoes and cook, turning frequently with a thin metal spatula, until golden and crisp-tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Add peppers; season with salt and pepper. Continue to cook, tossing occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes more.

  • Meanwhile, rub beef with remaining teaspoon oil; season with paprika, salt, and pepper. Broil, turning once, until medium-rare (an instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part should register 130 degrees), 10 to 15 minutes. Transfer to a plate, cover loosely with aluminum foil, and set aside to rest, 5 to 10 minutes. Thinly slice beef against the grain, and serve with vegetables.

If you watch the video it will show you exactly how to cut the cooked meat across the grain, but you should also cut it on a slight angle. The cut of meat shown in this recipe is top round beef, but flank steak is much more tender for "london broil".

(part 2) If you cut across then you will have several short pieces that are tender. Weird analogy but I hope it is clear. Or ask a butcher to show you at the store.

To figure out grain (Lanark22), hold your hand flat in front of you; your fingers are the length grain of the muscle fibers. If you cut in between them you will have long stringy pieces that are tough

London broil is Top Round Roast. I typed in my Google, 'meat: London Broil' and that's the info I got. Hope you got the same info

I'd also like to know which type of london broil is suggested.

A London Broil usually refers to a cooking style not a cut of meat; but in this case I believe Martha is referring to either a flank or round steak.

Simple and delicious. As there are two of us, we had leftovers for lunches. Just place in pita with a dollop of plain yogurt.
