    twissis's Note:

    Entered for ZWT-9, this is the 2nd of 3 recipes from an article at the Eating Well website titled “Healthy Couscous Recipes”. Per the recipe intro: “Thin cuts of beef (such as skirt steak or sirloin steak) cook very quickly when seared in a hot skillet -- Just right for a busy weeknight. We love how the spicy Moroccan flavors of the steak compliment the sweet, roasted pepper-studded couscous. Serve w/an Arugula salad & a glass of Pinot Noir.” Prep & Cook times were noted as an identical total, but I have allowed an extra 10 min for ingredient assembly. Enjoy!

      We just loved this meal! I made this exactly as posted, except I used kalamata olives in place of the green and used 1-1/2 lbs. of skirt steak. The couscous was so flavorful. tangy from the lemon and infused with all the spices. There was more than enough of the spice mixture for the extra 1/2 lb. of steak, which I cooked on the outdoor grill, rather than in a skillet. The steak really absorbed all of the flavors of the spice mixture and produced a very satisfying meal. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spice It Up Challenge of ZWT9 by a Tasty Tester.
