London Broil with Goat Cheese Chive Sauce

In my visits to food blogs since the beginning of the new year, it has become evident that many of you are trying to lose some weight. Guess what? I am too...I've lost 5 lbs. so far but I still have a ways to go.

This blog does not exist to dole out weight loss tips or make you stray from your plan, BUT if you are trying to lose weight run far, far, away from here right now. The rest of you keep reading.


I'm on a sauce kick and I don't know why. I found a sauce for vegetables and chicken last week, now I'm moving on to beef.







I cooked this lovely London Broil Sunday night generously crusted in grill seasoning, seared over screaming high heat on the stove and then gently baked in the oven. Slightly thin slices make this very economical for a family of four and we still had leftovers.
This simple sauce blend along with the intense crusted seasonings on the beef make my taste buds boot scoot boogie all over the place!





In a small sauce pan bring 1-1/2 cups of heavy cream to a gentle boil over medium heat. Keep an eagle eye on the pan so the cream does not boil over. Stir occasionally, the cream will reduce after about 20 minutes. At this point, add a small tube (about 4 oz.) of goat cheese. This particular time I used a flavored goat cheese, but plain is just fine. Once the cheese has melted, season to taste with coarse sea salt and white pepper (Black pepper is fine, I used white pepper to keep the sauce color from changing) and 2 tablespoons of chives. Ladle over sliced beef and you'll know why I am on a sauce kick!




Tomorrow is the Cafe's one year anniversary, I can't wait to show what we're going to make.

I've never tried this type of sauce on beef. Do you think that it would work on steak sandwiches as well. I'll be making the sandwiched tonight for dinner. (along with onion soup) And I need something to brighten up the sandwiches.
Happy bloggy anniversary a day early sweetie!!

WHAT! One year?!? That's way cool! I think mine is next month! Where did a whole year go? This looks wonderful. My DIL asked me last week how to cook a London broil. I told her that I've yet to cook one but that you had a good recipe. Now here's another one! It's as if you read our minds. That's not really hard since we are so clueless most of the time :)

Sounds good, like a play on blue cheese sauce. London broils are a tasty cut.

Tiffany said...

I didn't listen and run far far away and now my mouth is watering. Way to go on 5lbs lost! That's a great start. Good luck!

Oh that does sound wonderful! Now I am in the mood for good steak and sauce.. goat cheese is one of my favourites.

Marjie said...

Looks great - cheese makes everything worthwhile, doesn't it? Skip the potato, and enjoy the sauce!

wow, the goat cheese sauce sounds wonderful! I'm afraid I've gained a few pounds since I've been blogging and reading all of the yummy blog posts. Congrats on your year of blogging for tomorrow!

Well dear, lost 5 lb is good. I gain 6 lb since I've started to blog. Not a good news indeed, but if I tell people how much I weigh, they'll think that I am insane, wanting to loose 6 lb. You see, I still feel like I have to loose that 6 lbs of (you know what) in my tummy...
So, I guess I have to start with your delicious London broil and skip the goat cheese then? Nahhhh, I can't skip any cheese, period!
Cheers,
Elra

This sounds great. I always see london broil at the grocery store, but I'm never sure what to do with it, so I always pass it by. Now I know!

Holy cow...I have a flank steak in the freezer and goat cheese in the fridge just waiting for something like this. Now I know what is for dinner on Steak House Night!

Happy early congrats on your first year of blogging!
