Zesty Dijon Marinade for Beef

I love easy. 
I mean seriously, with three teenagers my schedule screams busy, so I am always looking for something flavorful and easy to serve up at mealtime.

And who doesn’t like simple?

One of my favorite quick and easy dinners is London Broil or beef shoulder tender, marinated and thrown on the grill, served up with fresh veggies or a salad.


Ingredients for this marinade are ingredients that are usually found in most pantries:
3/4 cup Balsamic vinegar
1 Tablespoons Olive Oil
3 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
3 cloves minced garlic
freshly ground black pepper
**Fresh herbs of choice (I like a little fresh rosemary or basil from time to time)
Whisk all of the ingredients together and pour over your preferred cut of beef.  We use London Broil or Shoulder Tender as they are some of the leaner cuts of beef you can find in the grocery store.

Pour over the beef and let sit for 1-2 hours, turning the meat several times to coat well.
Remove from the marinade and grill.


(You can use the oven to cook your meat, but I think it has so much more flavor from the grilling.)

Preheat your grill to 400 degrees.  Grill meat until your desired doneness.  We prefer our meat cooked to a nice medium.

{Invest in a good set of thermometers to use when you are grilling, you won’t regret it.}

That’s it.


Super simple, very flavorful, nice to dress-up or make for a casual meal.

And it looks like you literally spent hours perfecting your dinner.

I love to marinate our beef while sitting at a track meet or wrestling match, then it is grill ready when we get home.  Any vegetable I serve up steam while the meat is on the grill ….. Usually 30 minutes until supper is served.

Have a great weekend!
