Vodka Marinade for Steak

Asked by mrsvespertino. Answered on 25th September 2015

Full question

would the vodka marinade for Vodka Marinated Steak be good for let's say, skirt steak or london broil? Can we then "cook" marinade to use as sauce over grilled meat?

Our answer

Nigella's Vodka Marinated Steak (from Feast and on the Nigella website) uses a UK cut of meat known as a rump steak, which in the US is known as a sirloin steak. The steak is not as tender as the fillet or UK sirloin (US top loin/strip steak) so the marinade helps to tenderize the steak and it is then cooked to rare, leaving the steak as tender and juicy as possible.

The marinade and cooking would be suitable for similar, slightly tougher, cuts of steak and should be good for skirt steak. London broil is usually a marinating and cooking technique but the cuts most commonly associated with London broil are less tender ones such as flank steak or top round and the marinade would work with the skirt steak. In the UK the skirt and flank steak may be also referred to with the French name of "bavette". You can make the marinade into a sauce with any of the cuts of meat, following the instructions in the recipe.
