TABLE FOR TWO: Seared London Broil with Scallion Butter

Here is one of the best weeknight steak dinners. Full of bold flavor and simple ingredients.  

Full time 30 minutes
Serves 2

The needs-

1 1/2-2 lb. London broil
1 bunch scallions, chopped fine
3 tbsp butter, divided in half
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tsp ground black pepper

The know-

In a cast iron or heavy bottom pan, heat oil over medium high heat.

Pat both sides of London broil dry, season with salt and pepper.

Sear in heated pan for five minutes.

Flip over and sear second side for five minutes.

Lower heat on pan to medium and cook additional five minutes.

Remove from pan and let rest, this will be closer to medium rare. We will adjust temp later, do not cook longer now.

Add garlic and one portion of butter into pan, browning garlic for 3 minutes.

Add in scallions and remaining butter. Cook 2-3 minutes or until scallions become a bright dark green.

Taste and add additional salt if needed. 

Slice London broil into 1/2" slices.

Place cut side down into hot pan and sear in scallion butter two minutes.

Flip over to second cut side for two minutes, this will cook meat to a medium-well. With this cut you could go lower but it will be a tad chewy. 

Fan half the steak strips out on a plate.

Top with a generous helping of pan sauces and serve immediately. Cheers!
