Merlot Marinated London Broil

So a few months ago my grocery store was doing a ton of buy one get one free deals on meats. Whenever they do that I really take that opportunity to stock up on meats. Sometimes they do buy one get 2 free chicken breasts packs! I try not to have to buy meats when they are full price, I can't believe a pack of 3 chicken breasts is between $9-$10! So a while back they were doing a BOGO on London Broils. I really wanted to find a new recipe for a marinade and sauce that would be really impressive as opposed to our usual blend of spices. I came across this recipe for a Merlot Sauce and figured I could also use this an overnight marinade for the meat. This was so so good! Just the thing I was looking for and can be used on most cuts of meat, not just a London Broil!

On a side note, one more week of work before 2 weeks of vacation!!!


Overnight Marinade
-2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
-1 teaspoon honey
-1 teaspoon salt
-1/2 teaspoon pepper
-1 teaspoon garlic powder
-1/2 cup Merlot wine
-2 tablespoons soy sauce

1. Pierce meat with a fork several times. Top with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Rub into meat. Top with honey and rub into meat. Place meat in zip lock bag and pour in the balsamic, soy sauce, and wine. Place in the refrigerator overnight.

2. To cook the London Broil, preheat oven to broil. Place meat in 9x13 baking dish and place on oven rack closest to the broiler. Cook 8 minutes, flip and cook a remaining 7 minutes.

Merlot Sauce
-1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
-1/2 cup Merlot wine
-4 teaspoons honey
- 1 tablespoon soy sauce
-5 tablespoons butter
-1 teaspoon garlic powder

1. Slowly bring the balsamic vinegar, Merlot, garlic, soy sauce, and honey to a boil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer another 20 to 25 minutes; remove from heat and add the butter to the mixture, stirring to thicken as the butter melts. Serve over meat.
