London broil, Broccoli salad, Frozen peanut butter pie


I’ve known Ted McGrew for many years, but never realized he was such a good grill cook. I recently enjoyed this London broil prepared by him. Immediately, I asked for the recipe. Included are comments from Ted as he personalized the basic recipe.
London broil
2 lbs. flat iron steak
1/2 C soy sauce
1/3 C red wine
1/4 C balsamic vinegar
3 TBS olive oil
1 TBS hot sauce (Tabasco works)
2 TBS minced garlic
1 tsp. mustard powder
2 limes, juiced
salt and pepper to taste
Put all ingredients into a large freezer bag along with beef and marinate for 1 hour. (I typically will turn beef in 30 minutes.) I use a gas grill, heat on high. Steak tends to run about 1.5 inches thick. Cook 7 minutes on first side and around 6 minutes on the other. Once you pull beef off grill, allow it to sit for 2 minutes to let juices soak into steak.
I have made this a number of times through the past few years and I tend to go a little heavier on soy, balsamic and limes as this is really a personal preference thing. But this steak has a lot of flavor in it and it is really easy to make by playing around with the ingredients above.
Broccoli salad
3/4 C Miracle Whip light dressing
2 TBS sugar
2 TBS white vinegar
6 C small broccoli florets
6 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
1/2 C chopped red onions
Mix first 3 ingredients until blended. Combine remaining ingredients in large bowl. Add dressing mixture; mix lightly. Refrigerate 1 hour.
Frozen peanut butter pie
1 tub (8 oz.) cream cheese spread
1/3 C creamy peanut butter
1/2 C sugar
2 C thawed Cool Whip whipped topping
1/4 C caramel ice cream topping
1 Oreo pie crust (6 oz.)
1/4 C coarsely chopped pecans, toasted
2 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
Beat cream cheese spread, peanut butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until blended. Add Cool Whip; mix well. Spread caramel topping onto bottom of crust; cover with cream cheese mixture. Freeze 4 hours or until firm. Top with nuts just before serving. Melt chocolate as directed on package; drizzle over pie.
