Foodbuzz Tastemaker: Kikkoman Lime Ponzu Marinated London Broil


I received this sample of Kikkoman’s Lime Ponzu sauce a while back as part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program. It is a fantastic dipping sauce for Chinese dimsum such as potstickers, dumplings or siomai.  And if you want it spicy, just add a squirt of sriracha sauce or crushed garlic and you are all set.  The other day, I tried to use it as a marinade for this beautiful piece of flank steak we had for lunch.  London broil, as I eventually learned from the various food channels, is a way of cooking a flank or round steak.  I always thought it is what that cut of meat is called.  Apparently not.  In any case, I was told that london broil is typically marinated before grilling thus this recipe.  Instead of using plain soy sauce and adding citrus, vinegar and garlic, I mixed the ponzu sauce with a bit more ingredients and then marinated the steak overnight.  The result was a wonderful flavor!

Lime Ponzu Marinated London Broil


  • 1/4 cup Kikkoman  lime ponzu sauce
  • 2 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbs agave nectar or honey
  • 2 tsbp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • salt and pepper
  • approximately 2 lbs london broil steak


  1. Place london broil cut of meat in a ziploc bag.  In a bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients and stir. Pour over the london broil, seal and shake.  Refrigerate overnight.
  2. Remove meat from bag and let sit until room temperature. Heat grill or broiler in oven.  Cook meat, about 2 – 3 minutes on each side for medium rare.  Remove from heat, let rest for 2 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain and serve warm.

I always thought London Broil was a cut AND a way to serve, kind of an interchangeable thing. As always, a stunning display! Love lime, I even have some lime basil in the freezer. Will have to try the Kikkoman lime ponzu sauce.
