Deli London Broil 2 for 1

Recently I was trying to think of something quick to make that would not involve chicken. Don’t get me wrong. I love chicken but every now and then my family wants to eat meat without feathers or scales. Red meat is not really part of our diet but a nice piece of beef once in a while is welcomed.

I had no idea of what to make when I got to the grocery store. I was wondering around the deli department when I saw a beautiful piece of London broil on sale. Sandwiches first came to mind but then I thought I could saute the meat and place it on top of portobella mushrooms for a little more flair. By the time I finished wondering up and down the groceries aisles I had come up with a new recipe that could be served in two different ways using the same ingredients.

To top off my new creation I decided to make a simple yogurt dressing. I wasn’t sure how to make yogurt dressing so I just added ingredients I thought would blend naturally with yogurt. I used plain Greek yogurt because it is thick, holds up well and absorbs other flavors nicely when you mix them with the yogurt.
