Marinated London Broil with Lemon and Garlic
I had a large leftover very mediocre roast sirloin and decided to reuse it tonight in a London Broil. It was a thick cut of meat so I cut it in half horizontally and used this delicious marinade. I did not have fresh rosemary on hand, so I used 1 tsp. dried rosemary. I broiled the meat about 5 minutes on each side since it was already cooked meat. I made a 1/2 recipe of Pasta with Garlic and Olive Oil (recipe was from the box of Ronzoni Smart Taste thin spaghetti). We really enjoyed this meal. I love the meld of flavors in this London Broil recipe. It is very fresh and brings out wonderful succulant flavors in the meat. I used fresh squeezed lemon juice as the recipe states and I think this is key. The lemon flavor is just right.
1. Place steak in heavy large resealable plastic bag. Puree remaining ingredients in blender or processor. Season marinade with salt and pepper. Pour marinade into bag with steak; seal bag. Let steak marinate at room temperature 2 hours or chill up to 6 hours, turning bag occasionally.
2. Preheat broiler or prepare barbecue (medium-high heat). Broil or grill steak until cooked to desired doneness, about 7 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer steak to platter; let stand 15 minutes. Thinly slice steak crosswise.
Pasta with Garlic and Olive Oil
1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
2. In small saucepan over medium heat, heat oil; add garlic, salt and oregano. Cook 1 minute or until garlic is lightly browned; do not burn.
3. Toss hot pasta with oil mixture; season with salt and pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.

I made this recipe just to try something different and was pleasantly surprised by how much we enjoyed it. The combination of oregano, cinnamon, and garlic powder give a wonderful and unique flavor to this recipe. I used spinach in the recipe and just put it in without thawing it and it worked well since it was loose in a bag of frozen spinach and not compact in a box of frozen spinach. Feta cheese can be expensive, but if you shop around, you might find it at an affordable price. I found feta cheese for $1.99 at Aldi compared to over $4.00 at Meijer. My preschooler and toddler loved this and any leftovers were gone by lunch the next day. I will be making this again.

I want to share a little about coupon stacking. This is an incredible way to save a lot of money on the things you need. You can use a store's coupon and stack it with a manufacturer's coupon. Also, combine this with a good advertised deal and you can save even more money. I have done this both at CVS and Target many times. Today, I bought Huggies diapers on sale at CVS for $8.99. I used a CVS coupon for $2.00 off and a Huggies coupon for $2.00 off so I only paid $4.99 for the diapers. I also bought a large refill pack of Huggies Wipes on sale for $5.99 and used a CVS coupon for $2.00 off and a Huggies coupon for $1.00 off so I only paid $2.99 for a large refill pack with over 200 wipes.
I always scan my CVS card when I enter the store at the kiosk and have gotten many good coupons to combine with manufacturer's coupons. I recently received a mailer with several high value CVS baby coupons that I can combine with manufacturer's coupons. Target sends out great coupon mailers and has online printable coupons that are easily combined with manufacturer's coupons. So the basics of coupon stacking are simple and easy to do. Just combine a store coupon with a manufacturer's coupon. If you know of other stores that let you combine their coupons with manufacturer's coupons, I would love to learn more.
