that's ok, we're happy to have the recipe!

London Broil is a marinated flank steak ... great for grilling, tender when rare and sliced across the grain on a bias.

Cornish hens are very small chicken relations. Bigger than quail. serves 1 or 2 at most. probably from cornwall massachusets, lol.

the ranchers packers and resauranteurs of a country title the cuts . Ever had a New York Strip in London?? doubt it, lol. Go to South America where beef is what's for dinner too, and the cuts are named quite differently also.

But a knowlegable butcher won't steer ya wrong, whatever the cut is called.

Well, we don't 'broil', we 'grill' so wonder why it's called a London Grill? Mayeb its from a London in the USA?

So, there's a Cornwall, Mass... Who knew? We call those small birds by their French name pouisson!

You're right - in countries around the world, there are different names - but it is interesting when the names are changed in countries where we all pretend to speak English!!!

No, I definitely mean pouisson. See here for a photograph of frozen example from a New Zealand site, so they've heard of them too !

I know cooking, I've been doing it for nigh on 40 years and have been on courses at many cookery schools around Europe. I know what we in Britain call different types of bird!

But you are correct, the word you've used does mean 'Fish' in French.
