  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sprig fresh rosemary
  • 1 london broil
  • salt to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • 1/2 tbsp clarified butter or regular butter optional
  • 2 tsp pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees

  2. Wash London broil and pat dry with paper towels, season both sides liberally with kosher salt, season with pepper and/or other seasonings of your choice.  Set aside.

  3. To a skillet or oven-proof pan, add extra virgin olive oil over medium high heat. Add a sprig of rosemary and pan fry just until rosemary turns brown.  remove fried rosemary from heat and set aside.

  4. Add the London broil to the hot skillet and begin to sear one side for about 6 minutes or until you see a beautiful brown crusty outer coating. flip the London broil over and keep skillet on the stove for an additional 3 or so minutes. 

  5. Remove the skillet from the stove and place in the preheated oven and bake to your desired doneness. If you prefer your meat cooked just until no longer pink, then bake between 10 to 15 minutes.  If you prefer medium rare bake maybe for 7 minutes at first. (My family prefers just until no longer pink).

  6. Finish it off by topping with clarified butter or regular butter and allowing it to drizzle down the sides.  Baste London broil with pan juices and allow it to rest for 5 minutes before cutting.  After the meat has rested, slice the London broil thinly against the grain.
