- 1 teaspoon tarragon
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- gallon sized Ziploc bag
For the Citrus Lime Dressing
- 1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup olive oil (I used a mild flavor)

It's time to marinate. Seriously though, I am so impatient and HATE marinating because I just want my food, and I want it now, but you HAVE to marinate this or it won't be that exciting. Just do it. Stop being lazy.
- Grab your Ziploc bag, add your london broil to it along with all the other ingredients below. Not the citrus dressing ingredients you weirdo.
- Shake the bag, push all the ingredients together, knead the steak. KNEAD IT! Just give it some loving. Then set it in the fridge to marinate for 2+ hours. How long did I marinate mine? Freaking 48 hours people. You know why? Because that's how sh*t goes sometimes people!
- Ok, you've marinated and now it's time to prepare this chunk o' meat. Heat up that grill!!
- Now, you have 2 options. #1 If your grill has 2 burners, turn one on HIGH. You will sear both sides of the steak on the HIGH heat burner. This will just take 1-2 minutes per side. #2 Or, if you don't have a grill with multiple burners, sear your steak in a pan over very high heat with a bit of fat in the pan. This will only take 1-2 minutes per side.
- Once you've seared both sides of the steak, flip it to your medium heat burner and close the grill. Let this side cook for about 4-5 minutes. Then flip to the other side
- While the steak is cooking, head in the kitchen to make your citrus dressing.
- Add all your ingredients for your dressing together and whisk together.
- Once your steak is done cooking--you can poke at it to tell if it's done--if your finger sinks in deep, it's probably not quite ready. If the meat has a bit of push back when you poke it, that chunk o' meat is ready!! It all depends how cooked your like yours. I like mine pink. I know you cared.
- Once the steak is done, set it on a plate to rest for at least an hour. That means leave it the hell alone and let the juices meld together.
- After it has has finished resting, cut it thinly with a SHARP knife and add it to your dressing. Mix thoroughly. Store in the fridge for a more crisp and refreshing flavor.
