Great starting point! I like this one a lot but I would recommend the version of it on funnytummycafe.com. I've not been really adventurous with new flavors but this I will repeat! Pros: Wonderful flavors in the rub Cons: The couscous was TOO lemony
Due to a hungry husband I had to do some substitutions. Blade steaks instead of skirt steak (he ate the skirt steak for lunch) - omitted the olives (he snacked on those the day before) - used israeli cous cous instead of whole wheat (he made our chickens a warm meal) Other than having my cupboards raided nor most of the ingredients it was very easy to put together and very tasty. I expected it to be hotter than it was I'm not sure why but it was very good.
This was really good. It was definitely a change from what we're used to but in a good way. I had to use skillet steak because I couldn't find any skirt steak but it worked just fine. I also used the grill for the peppers and steak because my broiler is a bit questionable. Other than that I made it as stated and my husband and I really enjoyed it. A great out of the ordinary quick meal.
Quick & easy to prepare with mild spiced flavor. The rub produces a great crust on the steak. I felt the lemon flavor dominated the cous cous though to be fair I did seem to have a particularly juicy lemon so that may be why. My husband and I both thought that the leftover steak would be superb sliced thinly in a sandwich with a mint/yogurt dressing.
WOW! Blew me away this was a great meal! Tons of flavor really quick and very filling! I served brown rice instead of couscous because that's what I had on hand. The husband never knew the difference! I can always tell when something is a real winner with him because he goes back for seconds (we're both on diets). I used one red and one green bell pepper and served a spring mix salad with tomato and feta on the side. Big bravo to the EatingWell kitchen! This will definitely be made again in my house!
tasty and easy weeknight meal Initially I was a little leery of using cinnamon to season the meat but it actually turned out very good. The seasoning had a tasty and light flavor. I used sirloin because the skirt steak at the store looked very fatty. The couscous (although I didn't add the olives because I'm not a huge fan) was also very good and I enjoyed the sweetness of the bell pepper. I used the lemon garnish to squeeze over the couscous and meat and think it made it. I would definitely make this again! Pros: Tasty and easy weeknight meal
Not as well received as I had hoped The leftovers were good as a steak salad with honey-mustard seasoning although Kaja did not like the seasoned meat that way. I ate some couscous on my salad too. Leftover steak is unheard of at our house yet there it was. Offerred the kids a choice of unspiced steak (three takers) and Rice-a-Roni (four takers) Austin & I liked the steak Pros: Easy I liked it Cons: Nobody liked the couscous except me
