Because my family is not big on eating a lot of beef we only have steaks about twice each month. Sometimes even twice per month is too much for steak but I still like to fix some type of beef just to break up the menu from having chicken dinners. That is where London Broil comes in. Deli sliced London Broil to be exact.
Back when date night meant reservations at an upscale restaurant, hubby would take me to one of my favorite places called Harry’s Savoy Grill which is known for Delicious (with a capital D) steaks. Harry’s is where I fell in like with London Broil steaks. Their steaks are so tender you can practically cut it with your fork. Plus, Harry’s is the only restaurant where I will order my steak medium rare as I am not one to eat anything at a rare temperature. I make my exception with London Broil.
Now date night is more causal and we tend to do take out for dinner so we can sit on the porch or watch a movie. Of course, that hasn’t stopped me from enjoying London Broil. Because I have not figured out a way to make flank steak really tender, I decided to use deli sliced London Broil for an Easy Pepper Steak Sandwich. Instead of spending time marinating slices of flank steak I use thinly sliced London Broil since the meat is already tender. I just simmer the meat in a light sauce with sauteed onions and peppers to make the sandwiches more flavorful and Delicious with a capital D!

Easy Pepper Steak Sandwiches
1 – 1 ½ lbs London Broil deli slices
1 medium onion sliced
1 small green pepper sliced
1 small red pepper sliced
1 garlic clove minced
½ cup chicken or beef broth
3 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp olive oil or grape seed oil
1 tbsp minced fresh ginger
1 tbsp cornstarch
½ tsp Kosher salt
¼ tsp ground black pepper
pinch of red pepper flakes (optional)
Place soy sauce, ginger, cornstarch and garlic in a small bowl and stir to mix well. Set aside.
Add olive oil to a large skillet and heat over medium high heat. Add peppers and onions to the skillet. Season veggies with salt, ground black pepper and red pepper flakes. Stir and let cook for approximately 3 – 5 minutes until the veggies slightly soften.
Stir in broth and soy sauce mixture to the skillet and reduce heat to medium low. Add in the deli slices of London Broil. Gently turn the meat to make sure both sides are coated with gravy. Let simmer for 1 – 2 minutes. Serve on a hoagie roll or your favorite sandwich roll.
