Top Round

Top Round

Lean and full of flavor, the Top Round Steak, sometimes called the London Broil, is best when it has enjoyed a nice marinade and cooked only to medium doneness. Because of its leanness and limited tenderness, top round roasts are best cooked in liquid during braising or as a pot roast. Roast or steak, you’ll want to slice your cooked-to-medium top round thinly against the grain to ensure the most tender eating experience.
