London Broil with Pineapple Salsa

  • Yield 8 to 10 servings

The sweetness of the pineapple salsa enhances the flavors in this London Broil.


Bourbon Marinade:
2 -- garlic cloves, crushed
pinch salt
1/2 cup Dijon mustard
1/3 cup bourbon
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup plain yogurt
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 pounds flank steak
Pineapple Salsa:
1 large pineapple
1/2 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves, chopped
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons white vinegar


  1. For the marinade, mash the garlic with salt until a paste forms.  Combine the paste with the mustard, bourbon, brown sugar, onion, lemon juice, yogurt and olive oil in a large bowl and mix well.
  2. For the steak, add the flank steak to the marinade, turning to coat.  Refrigerate, covered, for 4 hours or longer.
  3. For the salsa, peel the pineapple and cut out the eyes.  Cut the pineapple into small chunks.  Combine with the mint, sugar and vinegar in a medium bowl and mix well.  Let stand, covered, for 1 hour or longer.
  4. To prepare, grill or broil the steak for 10 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reaches 130F.  Let stand for 10 minutes.  Slice thinly on the diagonal against the grain.  Serve the steak with the salsa.
