http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/harissa_steak_carrot_salad.html

From EatingWell:  July/August 2011

Here we pair harissa-rubbed grilled steak with tangy North African-spiced carrots. Serve with whole-wheat couscous.

4 servings | Active Time: 35 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to medium-high. (No grill? See Broiler Variation.)
  2. Whisk lemon juice, oil, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, paprika and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a microwave-safe medium bowl. Add carrots; stir to coat. Cover and microwave on High until the carrots are tender-crisp, about 2 minutes. Uncover. (Alternatively, steam carrots over 1 inch of boiling water in a large saucepan fitted with a steamer basket until tender-crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Toss the carrots with the spice mixture.)
  3. Rub both sides of steak with harissa and sprinkle with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Grill the steak 1 1/2 to 3 minutes per side for medium. Transfer to a clean cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice across the grain. Serve with the spiced carrots, garnished with parsley (or cilantro), if desired.
