I'm a broken record
--London Broil

London Broil
The Complete Family Cookbook Copyright 1969

1 2-pound flank steak or 1 ½-inch thick round steak
3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon oil
1 tablespoon sherry
1 finely minced garlic clove
1/8 teaspoon powdered ginger
Salt and pepper

Combine sauces, oil, sherry, garlic and ginger. Coat both sides of steak with mixture. Let stand at least ½ hour before broiling. Pre-heat broiler. Place steak on rack with surface of meat 3-inches from the heat. (Recipe refers to a timetable for broiling meat – I broiled about 7 minutes per side.) Season with salt and pepper. Carve diagonally across the grain in very thin slices.

How many ways can a person combine soy sauce, Worcestershire, oil, sherry, garlic and ginger into a marinade? We may find out! I've done it here many, many times. I can't help it. We like marinated meat and I always have all of these ingredients on hand. I'm drawn to these recipes but maybe it's time to give them a rest as far as blogging about them.

But it's all I've got for you today. I didn't get around to making some of the recipes I had planned on making.

I bought this piece of 'natural' beef on clearance. As much as I'm trying to keep my grocery bill down, I am trying to choose healthier options when I can.

I spent over $100 this week but my grocery bill was still much lower than it's been. It's not easy keeping it down.

Question of the Day: Have you given up anything at the grocery store? Last night I switched from the drawstring garbage bags to the flap bags. You get twice as many for the same price. I love the drawsting bags but that's a huge difference.

I've given up premium brands of ice cream (unless they are on sale). No more Ben and Jerry's for me! I buy the store brand, or the big tubs (and sometimes we make our own, too)

Haven't given up anything but I do pay a bit more attention to the sales (like buying B&J's ice cream because it's cheaper than HD's etc). And we are really trying to focus meat meals around cuts that are on sale though some of those cuts might be more expensive than say ground beef!

I really haven't given anything up but we usually get the genaric brands anyways. I buy alot of mark down meats and either eat them that day or freeze for later use. I don't get as much fresh veggies and fruit as I would like but prices have been high here.

I've stopped buying KA AP flour. I used it for cookies/cakes and I dont think it makes much of a difference. Gold Medal is 1.50 cheaper. I still buy KA bread flour.
