Ingredients

  • 4 Quality Mark beef steaks, (fillet, sirloin or rump) trimmed
  • 1-2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt, pepper and pinch of garlic powder
  • 1 cup boiling water or stock
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 1 red onion, peeled and sliced*
  • 8 mushrooms, sliced*
  • 1 red capsicum, sliced*
  • 1 tablespoon vinaigrette
  • Chopped parsley to taste
  • 2 tablespoons pesto

Method

Pour the water or stock over the couscous, fluff with a fork to separate the grains and stand 5-10 mins.

Rub oil on the steaks and season with salt, pepper and garlic powder, then oil the vegetables. Heat a BBQ or heavy-based pan and cook steaks 3-5 mins per side or until cooked to your liking. Set aside in a warm place to rest, and BBQ or grill the vegetables.

Fluff the couscous again and add vegetables, vinaigrette, parsley and pesto. Serve with the steaks.

*Or use your favourite seasonal vegetables.
