Char Crusted London Broil

Made a nice london broil last evening. My wife soaked it for the better part of the afternoon in some Coors (sorry, was the cheapest available at the time), and then I coated both sides with liberal amounts of Garlic Peppercorn CC. Fired up the Egg. Temp only reached about 475 max (must be time to clean out the grate again!), but no matter. Threw the meat on the egg and pseudoseared at 2.5 minutes per side and then closed it up and left it dwell for another 8-9 minutes. So juicy and tender! The serving plate could not contain the juices! It had a perfect hint of malt with the complimenting Char Crust. Love that stuff! Friday night: Steak Au Poivre with shitake mushrooms!

    bdavidson,[p]Sounds awesome, what time is dinner on Friday, can I bring my wife with me? Do you want me to bring anything? I have a nice Cabernet that would go great with the Steak. Let me know. hehehe[p]Good luck with the Friday cook, sounds like it will be awesome.[p]Troy

  • bdavidson, I've seen the mention of char crust before so I assume that must be a product name. Who makes it? Where can a flat lander find it? Does it replace the use of yellow mustard for sealing in the juices or does it have a favor of it's own? Inquiring kat wants help!~

    one feral kat,
    They have a website...but don't remember url.
    It is a tasty seasoning mix (several varieties) that is used to coat meat as a rub. It chars nicely due to it's makeup, and has a unique flavor. I use it with a mustard slater sometimes. Other times I will coat the meat, then mist with olive oil. Good stuff...worth having around. From what I understand the company offers a 5 sampler pack that is the way to go at first. Someone will probably chime in with the website.[p]NB

    one feral kat,[p]I stumbled across this stuff maybe a year ago and informed the forum about it. Most seem to enjoy it. You should be able to find it locally or you can order from this site. There are 5 (I think) different blends and each seems to best enhance a particular recipe. Try them all.[p]K~G

    Sounds great. Looks like you are eating well...and already have Friday mapped out!
    I will try the charcrust on the LB I have in the freezer. Next time you do that dish, go out and getcha a pint of Guinness, and use that for the marinade....MMMMM-mmmmmm!

    Nature Boy,
    You know, I almost bought the Guiness, but opted for the cheaper brew. Maybe in October?

    one feral kat,
    Check out the website that KennyG posted. I bought the sampler pack on recommendations from this forum last year. My favorites are the southwest spicey blend and the garlic peppercorn blend. MMMMMMMMM--Good.

    We live minutes from the Harrisburg airport! Stop on in. I may need to get a few more filets!
