Good afternoon! The forecast was for a beautiful day yesterday and I took a chance and trusted it.
I dug around in the freezer to find something suitable and found something I bought to use for sausage some time ago:
Looked around a couple of sites for London Broil/Top Round recipes and found one that used a marinade.
3 cloves minced garlic
1/2 cup soy sauce (I used low sodium)
2 Tb vegetable oil
2 Tb ketchup
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp black pepper

I gave it a good stabbing on both sides and scored and it went into the marinade bag for what turned out to be almost 24 hours, turning every so often.

I used the "upside down vortex" method for the coals and gave it a good sear on both sides. About 4 to 5 minutes each side.
Then moved it off the direct fire to bring to temp. Didn't take long.

Chives are coming up and just what the doctor ordered for mashed potatoes.

Perfect! sliced.jpg

Plated with mashed potatoes, green beans and buttered sourdough bread.

BBQ season is upon us! Thanks for looking and have a wonderful day!

Dan that is a great looking plate of food. Love chives in my mashed also
It is nice to see things in the gardens starting to poke out of the ground

Yep, about the only herbs we use are chives and parsley and chives are the first thing to come up in the spring and the last to die in the winter.

Man that looks stellar!! You sir have created a meal fit for a king but us paupers think it's the quintessential comfort food. That meal is right up my alley. Very well done and congrats on finally seeing some nice weather.
