:: Walmart and Kingsford Charcoal London Broil Blitz Recipe ::
Temperatures are cooling off a bit, and football is just getting started! Two great reasons to grill some beautiful beef! Walmart and Kingsford paired up to sponsor some creative juices… And there is nothing quite like juicy beef on a charcoal grill. Check out their collaboration here!
We love Kingsford’s “Bbq bag” – It’s perfect for grilling out without the mess! Just light the bag! – No lighter fluid? Genius! Thanks Kingsford!
I call my recipe London Broil Blitz >> it’s similar to a gyro but I use a non-traditional meat. … And Blitz is a common move in football used to switch things up and keep the opponent guessing. Whoa… that probably blew your mind, right? But wait! There’s more.
I threw some sourdough pita bread dough on the grill as well in a cast iron skillet first; it’s so cool to see them puff up with air! Don’t’ miss my pita bread recipe at the bottom of this post! Incredibly easy but don’t tell anyone. Just go along with it… you have superpowers!
What a fun way to eat at a cookout! Who needs a boring old hamburger bun!? Flat breads are a tasty way to change things up!
Before we get to the London Broil, have your tzatziki sauce ready! I use Greek yogurt, finely diced cucumber, minced garlic, salt, lemon juice and heavy on the dill! Add ingredients to taste – if you’ve never made tzatziki sauce before one ingredient may be you favorite so you’ll soon be tailoring it to your taste buds!
I begin with a London Broil cut from Walmart and marinate it. Anywhere from 2-12 hours; the longer the better. Be sure and have your coals hot when you begin grilling your meat.
3 Tbsp vegetable oil
1/3 cup soy sauce
juice of one lemon
3 Tbsp ketsup
3 cloves of garlic; minced
oregano and ground black pepper to taste
Grill 5-8 min per side and let meat rest 5 minutes covered when it comes off the grill. Slice thinly (cross grain).
That’s it! Simple, delicious, and fun! That’s how we like things around here!
For those of you wanting to try your hand at homemade pita bread, you’ll be able to cook them in a skillet on the stove, or on a stone or cookie sheet in the oven or on a cast iron skillet on the grill! The important thing is that your cooking surface is very hot before you put your dough on to cook. (Approximately 450 degrees hot!)
2 cups flour
½ cup water
½ tsp salt
½ cup sourdough starter
1 Tbsp olive oil
Place all ingredients in countertop mixer for about 3 min. Place dough in an oiled bowl and cover with plastic wrap at room temperature to develop flavor; 4-6 hours. You can also leave this dough overnight. Some people even have the patience to let it culture for 24 hours! But one thing is certain- you cannot beat the flavor that sourdough brings to recipes.
Divide the dough into 8 equal balls, form into disks by hand and then roll out so that it’s slightly thicker than a tortilla. Quickly toss your flat dough onto hot surface, and come back in 3-4 min. Magic happens in those few minutes. (Remember – you have superpowers!)
Pita bread can be covered with a towel and kept warm until it’s time to use them. They can be kept flat and “rolled” with ingredients or slit open to form a pocket.
