We really enjoyed this quite a bit, plus I could use up all my leftover couscous. We used a meat substitute (beefless strips), and substituted vegetable broth for the beef broth. This was not too spicy, maybe it could have been a bit more spicy, but BF and I liked it fine the way it was. Super easy for a weeknight supper with a salad or green veggie. Made for ZWT VI!
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 large onion, halved lengthwise sliced crosswise
- 1 large garlic clove, minced
- 3⁄4 lb lean lamb or 3⁄4 lb beef, cut into thin 2 inch strips

- 1⁄4 teaspoon oregano
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cumin

- 1⁄8 teaspoon allspice
