Grilled Steak with Almond Couscous and Grilled Lemon

I was having a chat with my colleagues yesterday and the topic inevitably turned towards food. One of the girls has an English/Walsh background and said that meat and veges are usually prepared for dinner. Another Singaporean girl said she must have rice every day and enjoy a good stirfry. For myself, I like variety in my food and I prefer to have different types of carbs such as pasta, rice, noodles or potatoes on different evenings of the week.

Couscous is another type of carb that I like to have occasionally. I like the quick and easy way of preparating couscous-just add boiling water or stock, cover, fluff and serve! This time round I chopped vegetables into tiny pieces, saute it with some olive oil and salt and toss the vegetables with the couscous. I think I was inspired by ABC Delicious magazine some time ago to grill lemons-and I was surprised by how the taste slightly differs (a little sweeter?) just by grilling it!

And of course, the steak was grilled quickly with cracked peper, seat salt and olive oil rubbed on it.

Grilled Steak with Almond Couscous and Grilled Lemon (serves 2)

2 pieces of steak (I can’t remember what cut I used!)

1 lemon cut in small wedges

1 cup of couscous

1 cup of boiling water

chopped capsicum, peas, corns

olive oil

2 tsp morocoon seasoning

1/4 cup of silvered almonds toasted

1) Grill vegetables with olive oil, morocoon seasoning and salt. Boil water and cook couscous according to package instructions. Toss vegetables and almonds with couscous.

2) Rub 1 tsp of olive oil, cracked pepper and salt on steak. Quickly grill them (3-4 mins on each side, depending on how you like your steak to be done).

3) Grill lemons.

4) Serve! =)

  2. Never had grilled lemons, but I bet they’re great squeezed over the couscous. Grains are the best when they have small chopped veggies in them of some sort, carrots, peas, corn, peppers, onions, edamame or anything! Couscous isn’t a grain though, I believe it’s just tiny pasta?

  3. I had couscous for lunch today. I think its a good alternative to rice, much lighter, but also, not as filling, so maybe not appropriate if you are very hungry.
