Really? London Broil is just good for grilling/broiling?

leanneabe | Jan 24, 200712:01 PM     32

We had a pre-Superbowl party (oops, I mean Big Game XLI) and people brought food over (even though we told them we have plenty for the grill and smoker) so we ended up with the uncooked meats. I threw some in the freezer because we wouldn't be around for a few days and now I'd like to cook it to make room in the freezer. One of them is a London Broil - it's about 1 1/2 inches thick and flat, no visible fat anywhere. It looks really boring, in my opinion.

I did some searching here and it looks like everyone agrees that you either grill it or broil it and then slice it thinly across the grain. Is that it? Nothing else you can do with this cut of meat (that I don't ever buy)?

Is it suitable for stir frys, or would it get too tough and chewy? If I dice it and throw it into the crockpot, would it make a decent beef and barley soup, or would it be too hard? Can I grind it up and use as ground beef or is that just a waste of time?

Help, help, help!
