"If only one could tell true love from false love as one can tell mushrooms from toadstools."

The refrigerator light goes on...

When grilling a thick piece of meat like this, keep the "tail" towards the colder side of the grill to avoid overcooking. If you happen to live in a household with mixed meat doneness preferences, about 3 minutes or so into the meat resting period, you can cut off an appropriate sized section for the more well done fans and slice to portion size and return to the grill until the desired doneness is achieved.

This recipe makes fair leftovers. Cooking time does not include marinating time.

Serve with Potato Vinaigrette Salad or Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes or Home Fries or Barbara's Potato Salad or Cumin, Black Eyes and Corn Salad

1 lb london broil (well trimmed)
1/3 cup olive oil (divided)
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 clove garlic (minced)
2 cups mushrooms (sliced thickly)
2 Tbsp balsamic vinegar
1/8 tsp salt
fresh ground black pepper (to taste)

Trim any excess fat from the London Broil.

In a small bowl whisk together the olive oil (reserving 1 tablespoon), lemon juice and garlic. Place the London Broil in a zipper bag and add the marinade. Let the meat marinate for at least 1 hour prior to grilling.

Grill the London Broil 8-9 minutes per side for medium rare, 10-12 minutes each side for medium.

When the London Broil is cooked to your preference, place it on a cutting board and allow it to rest for 5 minutes.

While the London Broil is resting, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil over medium high heat and add the mushrooms and salt. Once the mushrooms have turned golden brown, add the balsamic vinegar and ground pepper to taste. Stir well and allow to cook another 2-3 minutes and remove from heat.

Slice the meat thinly and serve with the mushroom mixture.
