Things You'll Need

  • 2 lb. "London broil" meat or flank steak

  • 2 tbsp. vegetable oil

  • 2 cups beef broth

The London broil refers to a cooking method rather than a cut of meat, but that does not stop butchers from labeling meat as a "London broil" cut. The original cooking method requires a tough cut such as a flank steak to be broiled or grilled and served in thin slices. Use a pressure cooker instead to cook the steak thoroughly for safety while reducing the total cooking time.


Step 1

Remove the lid of the pressure cooker and add the oil and the meat to the pan.

Step 2

Brown the meat on all sides over high heat.

Step 3

Pour the beef broth over the steak and place the cover on the pressure cooker.

Step 4

Bring the pressure cooker to high pressure (15 psi) and adjust the burner to maintain that level.


Step 5

Cook the meat at 15 psi for 15 to 18 minutes.

Step 6

Remove the pressure cooker from the heat and wait for the pressure to drop enough to remove the lid manually.

Step 7

Thinly slice the meat across the grain and serve.
