    It's just rubbed with a mixture of coarse salt and 4 different peppers (red, black, white, cayenne). Then grilled on high for 7 minutes per side. Cut it very thin diagonally across the grain.

    Tomorrow the leftover meat will be heated in a skillet with olive oil and onions for cheese steak sandwiches. ;a

    I use that (grilled about 6 minutes per side, with salt and pepper; sometime meat tenderized before) to make "Thai fajitas".

    Slice meat as you said. (Sometimes I dice it too.) Wrap in tortillas with fresh basil, mint, jalapeno, green onion, drops of fish sauce, and other fresh ingredients of your choosing.

    The meat is filling, and the other ingredients give it a nice, fresh and flavorful taste.

    Friends are always impressed, and it's an original.

    What keeps it from being so tough? Or...is it? I've never tried grilling a "broil". In my experience, they lean to the tough side. Just curious.

    I'm not sure. I had always been told that a London broil was difficult to make without it being dry and tough. When I make them I sear them on high heat for a short time and that seems to keep them juicy. As for tough, I can only assume that not overcooking them (I go for rare to medium-rare) and then cutting THIN slices across the grain are the key.

    Another good way is to marinate them in Dale's or Moore's for about an hour before cooking. And yes...cook on high, keep them rare, and slice thin. Yum. You can also cook them in a George Foreman grill!;)

    we do ours on the grill to brown on both sides, use some smoker chips to get some wood flavor also. then we cool it,rub with bar-bq suace and wrap to put in frig overnite. put in slow cooker for about 2-21/2 hours (about 3-4lbs size) and slice and put on buns for killer bar-bq sandwhiches!!
